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 aim of the M.Eng program is to strengthen, in some specific area(s), the knowledge gained at the undergraduate level, to enhance the problem-solving skills of students and to advance the body of technical knowledge in civil engineering practice. This course and project programme requires the completion of the equivalent of 6 half graduate level courses plus presentation of a report demonstrating ability to carry out independent study and reach a satisfactory conclusion. This program is primarily intended for part-time M.Eng. candidates but may be taken by full-time students.
