Civil and Environmental Engineering offers a variety of degree options at the Graduate studies level. Whether your focus is on research and innovation, increasing your technical knowledge in a specific field, or increasing your professional portfolio through graduate studies, CEE offers degrees at the Masters and PhD level to help you achieve your academic goals.

The Master of Engineering Science (MESc) program is a thesis based Master's research degree. This program is offered to applicants who hold a four-year Bachelors Degree. It is expected that graduate students will complete all program requirements within two years. Accelerated MESc degree program is also available. Applicants for graduate studies should list area(s) of interest which will then be matched to current openings in the various research groups. If there are no immediate openings the application will be kept on file and frequently reviewed for up to approximately 6 months.
