The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers a graduate distance
learning program called APOGEE (A Program of Graduate Engineering Education) to
help engineering professionals earn graduate credit/degree while maintaining full-time
employment and without the constraints of on-campus attendance. A student enrolled
in the APOGEE program can register for the degrees of Master of Engineering, Master
of Science, or PhD. Prerequisites for enrollment degree requirements and graduation are identical to
those required for students registered on-campus in graduate programs of the Department
of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
APOGEE is a quality distance educational program designed to meet the needs of busy
full-time employed professionals by providing flexibility to course content delivery.
APOGEE courses are downloaded directly to the students' home (or other
designated site) using video-streaming via Microsoft Windows Media Player on the
World Wide Web. This enables the student to access individual classes and course
materials at any time and place according to the student's convenience and the
student will be able to fully participate in the enrolled course of study while
still maintaining a busy work schedule, including any international travel
APOGEE students are required to follow the same application procedures as the on-campus
graduate applicants. Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page for more
information or if you wish to go ahead and apply then access the online application
from the Graduate School website or call the Graduate School at (803) 777-4243.
Complete and submit the application indicating "APOGEE" on the application where
it asks where you will attend classes. The application deadlines are listed for
each term on the website. APOGEE students must submit proof of immunization before
registering for classes. Foreign nationals should have permanent residence status
to enroll in APOGEE.
