Civil Engineering (MASc & PhD)



Civil Engineering (MASc & PhD)

The MASc and PhD programs in Civil Engineering have been designed to train highly-qualified personnel by providing in-depth knowledge through course work and research projects in one or more of the following three strategic research areas:

i. Infrastructure lifecycle management, maintenance and rehabilitation

ii. Design for climate-change-driven extreme events

iii. Sustainable development

These three strategic research areas encompass the traditional Civil Engineering sub-disciplines of Environmental, Geotechnical, Structural, Transportation, and Water Resources Engineering.

The MASc and PhD programs embrace the philosophy of Renaissance Engineering by providing opportunities to students for enhancing their communication skills, awareness of legal, ethical, business and societal issues, environmental stewardship and sustainable engineering practices.

Program requirements include advanced-level graduate course work that includes core courses and technical/open electives, and a research project that culminates in the completion and successful defense of a research thesis/dissertation.
