School of Engineering & Applied Sciences Graduate Programs

Advance Your Potential

Earning an advanced degree at WSU Tri-Cities will add personal and professional value to your life. This is your chance to help build a better word through research projects with world-renowned faculty and to increase your learning potential.

The state of Washington has a shortage of people with graduate degrees. Your chances of getting a good-paying job with your graduate degree are high and chances for financial success grow exponentially with a graduate degree.

Master’s graduates average more than $67,000 a year compared to bachelor’s graduates at about $56,000 per year. Doctoral graduates earn on average about $92,000 a year and professional degree-holders can earn about $100,000 per year.

And graduate school is affordable. There are many resources available for graduate students. Because of all the financial assistance available, including tuition reimbursement programs from local businesses and contractors, many graduate students at WSU Tri-Cities graduate with absolutely no debt.

Meet Cameron

Cameron Hohimer, a doctoral student in Mechanical Engineering, received a 2016 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. This prestigious program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited United States institutions. Cameron will continue to explore the possibilities of soft robotics through 3D printing. Read more…

Degree Programs

Chemical Engineering, M.S., Ph.D.

Faculty research is broadly focused in three areas: sustainable energy systems, biomolecular engineering, and biomechanics. Within these areas projects are focused on chemical and biological catalysis and kinetics; chemical and biological fuel cells; biofilm engineering; novel sensor technologies; cardiac and reproductive molecular engineering; and molecular, cellular, and musculoskeletal mechanics. The graduate programs are flexible, allowing students to develop a program that fits individual needs. A Master of Science is typically completed in 1-2 years.

Civil and Environmental Engineering, M.S., Ph.D.

The graduate programs in Civil and Environmental Engineering provide a solid foundation in the fundamentals of engineering and science combined with technical expertise in specialized areas of the field.

The faculty members in the CEE program are leading experts in their respective disciplines. Our faculty members lead academic instruction and research activities in concrete materials, including ultra-high performance concrete and engineered cementitious composites, understanding of surface and subsurface hydrology and their sustainability through innovative use of modeling and experimental data, and reaction kinetics.

The doctoral program is officially offered through the Pullman campus, although students may complete all of their degree requirements on the Tri-Cities campus. Students interested in this Ph.D. program must apply to WSU Pullman to be accepted. Prospective students are encouraged to contact the department about the availability of coursework, research, and faculty advisors at the Tri-Cities campus.

Computer Science, M.S., Ph.D.

The computer science graduate programs systematically build a body of knowledge of theories and models and show how this body of knowledge can be used to produce solutions to real-world computational problems. Today’s information technologies, such as e-mail, the Internet, mobile apps, and e-commerce, are all the result of the work by computer scientists and engineers.
