As distance learning becomes a popular alternative to traditional campus-based education programs, schools are offering a larger number of programs to prospective students. While it is possible to complete distance learning through correspondence using mail, most distance learning courses are offered over the Internet. Fully accredited undergraduate and postgraduate civil engineering courses are offered at a number of schools across the country, and each program has its own eligibility requirements and mandatory coursework.

North Carolina State University

North Carolina State University's Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering offers a Master of Civil Engineering program that can be completed through distance learning. The program is offered electronically or through UPS ground service. Lectures are delivered on a CD or streamed over the Web, and lecture notes, assignments and handouts are provided. Professors for the course can be contacted via e-mail or on the phone.

University of Florida

The University of Florida College of Engineering's Master of Science in Civil Engineering is offered as a distance learning course and can be delivered on the Web or on DVD. A bachelor of science in civil engineering must already be held by students entering the course, and a grade point average above three (on a four-point scale) is necessary. The University of Florida requires that three references and official GRE scores or FE exam scores be submitted with the course application.
