  1. Dear All Friends I applied to UC Berkeley and Georgia Tech's geosystems engineering Ph.D. program and had an interview from GT. Please let me know if anyone received any sort of answer from UC Berkeley geosystems engineering group, other than the template emails.
  2. Does anyone have news on admission for 2019 session?
  3. Hi guys. I haven't seen many Civil & Environmental Engineering applicants on the site so I figured I would start a thread for the few that exist. I would love to know what schools people have already heard back from. So far I have been accepted to PhD programs at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, Virginia Tech, and Northwestern.
  4. Hey there everyone. I am an applicant waiting out on my decision for matriculation in McGill Fall-2018. Anyone gets any notification from the department do let us know as well and I will do the same for you. Have a happy waiting period.
  5. Dear all, I am senior in Petroleum Engineering at The University of Oklahoma and graduating in May 2018. I am preparing for my graduate school applications in Petroleum Engineering and Civil Engineering. I have a list of almost 20 schools that i am going to apply. Could you guys please help me evaluate my profile and the chance i get funded ? I need funding to go to graduate school. Profile: -Overall GPA: 3.60 ( Hopefully it will go up to 3.65 after this semester ) -Major GPA: 3.75 -Expected GRE: 320- 325 ( Quantitative: 165; verbal: 155; AWA: 4.0) -LoRs: 2 decent ones from associate professors and 1 strong from department chair ( The professor i am working with) -SoP: not very strong, decent. -Research Experiences: 1 internship with big company in oil field ( Worked as research intern), and 1,5 year experience working in the lab with well-known professors. I know my GPA and GRE are gonna hurt my application, but i dont think i could improve those in short time. The schools i will apply: -Petroleum Engineering: UT Austin, Texas A&M, Colorado School of Mines, OU, LSU, UL Lafayette, U of Alberta, U of Calgary, NTNU. U of Stavanger, Imperial College, U of Adelaide, Curtin, U of New South Wales, TU Delft, South Dakota School of Mines, New Mexico School of Mines, Montana Tech, Penn State, SouthCal -Civil Engineering: ( I chose this major because it shares some courses with P.E and my intern project was related to this field): GeorgiaTech, U of Minnesota, U of Illinois, University of Michigan, Cornell, Purdue ( I really dont expect much in these schools ) Please feel free to share your thoughts about my profile and my school choices.
  6. Hi, I am an international student and have been admitted to both Stanford and Berkeley for Masters in Civil Engineering. I am interested in focusing more on Earthquake Engineering, but I am still not 100% sure. I am confused which one I should choose. Any opinions, pros, cons of each university, both academic life and campus life in general are appreciated! Where should I go? Thank you!

  8. Hello Guys, I am a PhD candidate in Civil and environmental engineering in Louisiana State University (LSU). I have a masters degree along with my bachelor. How do you evaluate my chance og getting acceptance for another PhD in a computational mechanics field in either MIT, Stanford or Harvard after I receive my PhD degree from LSU? I appreciate if you let me know about similar situations?
  9. So for a Canadian student studying in Lebanon, and getting his BE from the best university there with a GPA of 2.96, and a similar GPA in the last final 2 years, is there any chances to be accepted for the unfunded ME program in civil engineering at University of Toronto? In addition, when do they reply usually? Any info is HIGHLY appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  10. Hi. I am new to this forum. So I'm having trouble finding relevant information to my query. I graduated from Civil Engineering department. Though it was my dream to study robotics, for some reasons I could not get into a Mechanical Engineering program. Right now I want to change my track and go to Mechanical Engineering and get an MS and then PhD in Robotics . So, I applied to MS in ME programs in 2/3 universities and one of them (ULL) accepted me. I don't know much about their program but they have a robotics Lab. I have not received any fund from here yet. I have also applied to several civil engineering (environmental) MS/PhD programs with no luck in fund. Without fund it's gonna be little tricky for me to attend US universities. If I decide to go self funded then I see no reason not to go to ULL other than the obvious reason that what if the prof in robotics lab don't accept me to supervise? If I can get my MS degree from here what will be the possibilities of getting an offer of PhD from a high ranked uni? I am very worried. Should I just wait for funding decisions from all the unis I applied or start processing for visa to go to ULL? Has anyone received fund from ME department of ULL for this fall yet? P.S: My profile is CGPA-3.11, GRE(Q-162, V-155, AWA-3.5), IELTS-7.5, 1 journal paper in structural analysis (undergrad thesis)
  11. I am trying to make a decision between a MS in UC Berkeley and MEng in MIT. Both programs have similar tuition and are 8 month programs. I am thinking of doing geotechnical engineering and maybe with focus on earthquake and I am interested in working in the states or international in the future. I know Berkeley has strong earthquake programs, but the wow factor with MIT is making the decision very different for me. Since I am interested in working overseas, I feel the name associated with MIT is also a considering factor. Could you guys give me some insights regarding the job prospects from both schools and whether if Berkeley is also a recognizable brand internationally? Thanks a bunch!
  12. I have applied for MS in Civil engineering (starting Fall 16) in US universities. While going through the result page, I find that a lot of students are getting interview calls and acceptance already. I would like to know if the US universities take interviews of the international applicants for MS in Civil engineering (concentration: Structural and material engineering). If yes, when can I expect the interview call and how will it be conducted? Thank you for your suggestions! Applied: Stanford, UCB, UIUC, UT Austin, Purdue, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Penn State, Lehigh.
  13. Hi, I am admitted to the SDC program. Thought this would be a nice way to meet everyone who's admitted to Stanford CEE this fall!
  14. Got email confirming admission. Any one else ?
  15. Well I guess the title really says it all. I'm an undergrad at the moment, just scored research position for next semester with a prof. Like a lot of other kids I've seen a lot written about 'doing research as an undergrad' in order to have a better chance of getting in to good Masters/phd programs. Let me put it this way, is research really considered a 'game changer' as far as masters/Phd programs applications are concerned? I guess it's kinda hard for me think that a kid who, say had a 3.3 GPA and research (of course, in something that's related to your field) will be preferred over someone who had 3.7 and no research. I know the above scenario is a bit of an exaggeration, but does it hold true ?
