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.
