About Civil Engineering

About Civil Engineering

Advanced courses of instruction and laboratory facilities are available for Engineering graduate students who wish to proceed to the degrees of M.Eng., M.Sc., and Ph.D.

Graduate studies and research are at present being conducted in the fields of structures; infrastructure rehabilitation; risk engineering; fluid mechanics and hydraulics; materials engineering; soil behaviour; soil mechanics and foundations; water resources engineering; environmental engineering; and transportation engineering.

M.Eng. in Civil Engineering

The master's degree can be pursued as a research degree (thesis) or as a coursework-based degree (non-thesis). The thesis degree is for those who wish to undertake research while the non-thesis degree is for those who wish to have a broader and more specialized training in civil engineering.

Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) Civil Engineering (Thesis) (45 credits)

Students obtain a deeper understanding of their area of specialty through courses selected with their supervisor. A two- to three-semester independent research project is undertaken in the field of structures; infrastructure rehabilitation; risk engineering; fluid mechanics and hydraulics; materials engineering; soil behaviour; soil mechanics and foundations; water resources engineering; environmental engineering; and transportation engineering.

Master of Science (M.Sc.) Civil Engineering (Thesis) (45 credits)

Candidates with a bachelor's degree in a discipline other than Engineering, such as Science or Arts, may be accepted into an M.Sc. program in the Department. Such students would typically study in the fluid mechanics, water resources, environmental engineering, or transportation engineering areas, and would follow the thesis option program.

Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) Civil Engineering (Non-Thesis): Environmental Engineering (45 credits)

This program is offered to students with a university undergraduate degree in engineering who desire graduate education in the environmental engineering field. This option is within the context of the existing M.Eng. (non-thesis) programs currently offered in the Departments of Bioresource Engineering (Agricultural and Environmental Sciences); Chemical Engineering; Civil Engineering; and Mining and Materials Engineering. This program emphasizes interdisciplinary fundamental knowledge courses, practical applications in diverse environmental contexts, and functional skills needed for solving environmental problems through a wide range of technical and non-technical courses offered by collaborating departments and faculties at the University. Candidates must possess a bachelor's degree in engineering. The Environmental Engineering option is administered by the Faculty of Engineering.

Further information may be obtained from the Program Coordinator, Department of Civil Engineering.

Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Civil Engineering

Research can be conducted in the fields of structures; infrastructure rehabilitation; risk engineering; fluid mechanics and hydraulics; materials engineering; soil behaviour; soil mechanics and foundations; water resources engineering; environmental engineering; and transportation engineering.
