The Department of Civil Engineering offers a broad
programme of graduate studies in Civil Engineering. Our faculty members
conduct research in areas of computational mechanics/finite element
analysis, bridge engineering, building systems/building science, earthquake
engineering/structural dynamics, environmental hydraulics/water resources,
geomechanics, GIS applications/urban systems and sustainability, masonry/concrete/composite
materials, and structural retrofit/rehabilitation, material durability/service
life modelling. In particular, our fields of study at the Master's
and Ph.D. levels are in computational mechanics, water resources and
environmental engineering and structures. Please note that
we are not offering Transportation Engineering at this time and we
do not offer a degree in Construction Management.
Master's of Applied Science
(M.A.Sc.) Thesis: Research programme requiring the completion
of the equivalent of 4 half graduate level courses plus presentation
and defence of a thesis embodying results of an original investigation
is required. This program is intended mainly for full-time candidates
but may be taken on a part-time basis.
Master's of Engineering (M.Eng)
Project: Course and project programme requiring the completion
of the equivalent of 6 half graduate level courses plus presentation
of a report demonstrating ability to carry out independent study and
reach a satisfactory conclusion is required. This program is primarily
intended for part-time M.Eng. candidates but may be taken by full-time
Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.):
Equivalent of 4 half courses beyond the Master's degree and successful
defence of a thesis is required. Candidates are required to pass a
Comprehensive Examination. Under some circumstances, arrangements
can be made with the Department for part-time Ph.D. study.
Post-Degree Studies:A post-degree
student is one who holds a university degree and has been given permission
to take a specific graduate course, but has not be admitted to a graduate
program. To apply please click here.
