This person will work with you on submission of required documents, establishing a graduate committee, and your completion on all degree requirements. The major advisor must be a full-time faculty member in Civil and Environmental Engineering. Members of the committee must be members of the graduate faculty at Mississippi State University. The majority of the graduate committee must be full-time graduate faculty at Mississippi State University.
