The MEng in Civil Engineering is a course-based program that increases technical knowledge in the design of built facilities, their construction processes, their operation and maintenance and their impact on the surrounding environment. The Department of Building, Civil and Environmental Engineering, offers comprehensive programs in building and civil engineering. The program is designed to strengthen specific areas of knowledge gained at the undergraduate level and to provide an introduction to graduate research.
Students must complete 45 credits of 6000 or 7000 level courses. The courses must be selected as follows:
(1) 21 credits minimum
Chosen from one of the course groups in List B.
This set of courses may also include the project and seminar courses:
ENGR 6991 - Project and Report III (5 credits)
BCEE 6961 - Graduate Seminar in Building and Civil Engineering(1 credit)
ENCS 6931 - Industrial Stage and Training (9 credits)
(2) 12 credits minimum
Chosen from those Course Groups of List B 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 Gina Cody School.
List B: Course Groups in Civil Engineering Program Group 1 - Environmental Engineering and Water Resources: Topic Areas: E04, E33, E36, E37
Group 2 - Geotechnical and Transportation Engineering: Topic Areas: E03, E34, E35
Group 3 - Structural Engineering: Topic Areas: E06, E31, E32
Group 4 - Construction Management: Topic Areas: E21, E24
Bachelor’s degree in engineering or equivalent with high standing.
Proficiency in English. Applicants whose primary language is not English must demonstrate that their knowledge of English is sufficient to pursue graduate studies in their chosen field.
