Building, Civil and Environmental Engineering

Building Engineering

Doctor of/Doctorate in Philosophy (Building Engineering)

See the description of the Doctor of/Doctorate in Philosophy in the general section for the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science. When PhD program profiles of individual students in Building Engineering extend into related fields such as computer science, economics, mathematics, sociology, etc., the students are required to take appropriate courses outside the Department.

Master’s Programs in Building Engineering

The Department offers two 45-credit programs leading to the MASc or MEng degrees with specialization in one of the following four branches:

  1. Building Science (E21, E22)
  2. Building Environment (E07, E21, E23)
  3. Construction Management (E21, E24)
  4. Building Structures (E06, E21, E31)

Applicants lacking the appropriate engineering background will be required to enrol in an extended program of specified courses. These courses are in addition to the regular 45-credit program.

Requirements for the Degree

The requirements described here are in addition to the general degree requirements for the Master’s programs in the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science.

    Note: Students who have taken ENCS 6931 cannot take any of the following three courses: ENGR 6971, ENGR 6981 or ENGR 6991; and vice-versa.

  2. A minimum of 12 credits chosen from the Topic Area E35 and those Course Groups of List A other than the group chosen in (1) above. These groups of courses could include special program courses put on for or by a given industry in conjunction with the Faculty.

  3. A maximum of 12 credits chosen from the Engineering Courses section including E72 (MBA courses).

Graduate Certificate in Building Engineering

Admission requirements

Applicants to a certificate must hold a bachelor’s degree in engineering or architecture or equivalent with an above-average standing. The Department will recommend on the acceptability of an applicant for admission to the program and may require the applicant to do specific remedial course work to meet the program requirements.

Requirements for completion

The program can be completed in one to three years. Students with high standing in their bachelor program and whose academic records satisfy the requirements for good standing in the Master’s Program in Building Engineering may apply for transfer to the Master’s program.

  1. Credits. A fully qualified candidate is required to complete a minimum of 16 credits.

  2. Courses. Candidates in the graduate certificate program must take 12 credits of core courses in an area of concentration while the balance of 4 credits may be chosen from the elective list or other courses offered by the Department. Core courses for which credits have been credited to another certificate or program must be replaced by elective courses in the area of concentration or by other courses on special permission.

  3. Performance. Students who have completed at least two courses will be assessed in June of each year. To be permitted to continue, students must have obtained a weighted cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of at least 2.75.

  4. Graduation. To be eligible to graduate, students must have obtained a CGPA of at least 2.75.
