Effective immediately, the name of the Architectural Engineering and Building Construction Department at Milwaukee School of Engineering has changed to the Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management Department.

“We recently announced the addition of a five-year, freshman-to-master’s degree in civil engineering to our degree offerings,” said Dr. Deborah Jackman, professor and chair of the Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management Department. “Our new department name more accurately describes what programs are available to students.”

MSOE will welcome its first civil engineering students in Fall 2011, and it is the first and only university in the state of Wisconsin to offer a five-year, freshman-to-master’s degree in civil engineering. The program is designed so that students will receive both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in civil engineering after five years.

In addition to civil engineering, other degrees available in MSOE’s Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management Department include its nationally known and well-established bachelor’s degrees in architectural engineering and construction management, and a master’s degree in structural engineering. More information is available on the Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management Department Web page.
