The MASc in Building Engineering is designed to strengthen specific areas of engineering learned at the undergraduate level and to provide an introduction to graduate research. Examples of subfields studied in the program include building science, construction management, energy efficiency, rehabilitation of urban infrastructure and facility management. Students interested in the course-work master's program should refer to the MEng Program instead.
