Civil Engineering is the study, application, and practice of using science and engineering technologies to deal with the design, planning, construction and maintenance of sustainable infrastructure, in both physical and natural built environment. The objective of the M.A.Sc program is to strengthen, in some specific area(s), the knowledge gained at the undergraduate level, and to provide a significant introduction to research involving original investigation in these areas. This research programme requires the completion of the equivalent of 4 half graduate level courses plus presentation and defence of a thesis embodying results of an original investigation. This program is intended mainly for full-time candidates but may be taken on a part-time basis.
