Online Learning

The Master of Science in Civil Engineering: Energy Infrastructure program is offered completely online, allowing for a flexible learning experience that fits the schedules of working professionals. Because all course materials are accessed through your computer, you can earn a UW degree from anywhere in the world that has high-speed internet service.

How Online Learning Works

In many ways, online courses are similar to classroom courses. You start each course at the beginning of the quarter and follow a weekly schedule. You need to keep up with assignments and other coursework by their deadlines and finish all tasks by quarter's end. From your computer, you will connect to a robust online learning management system called Canvas. There you can access the course materials, including assignments and recorded lectures, and interact with instructors and fellow classmates in online forums at a time convenient for you.
