Civil engineering graduate program
Civil engineering design, build and maintain infrastructure like buildings, dams and bridges.
The graduate program is a comprehensive program leading to the degree of masters of science and doctor of philosophy with specialisation areas like geotechnical engineering and structural analyst and design. It is aimed to enhance a career in civil engineering.
Civil engineer graduates are responsible for transportation works like airports and highways. Engineers gain a wide range of scientific knowledge and extensive understanding construction materials in order to excel in their career.
The program helps students stay on top of technical advancements and move forward in the field.
The coursework stretches over two semesters and is a project-oriented program that further leads to the degree of masters of engineering.
The objective for a graduate in civil is to
•Demonstrate breadth and depth of knowledge and skills appropriate to the civil engineering specialization as measured by successful completion of coursework and the final project.
•Apply appropriate concepts and methods to solve problems as measured by successful completion of coursework and the final project.
•Identify and analyse problems and issues as measured by successful completion of coursework and the final project.
•Exhibit professional practices and ethics in coursework and the final project as measured by the use of professional standards, such as proper referencing and data collection and analysis.
•Communicate clearly and effectively, as measured by successful completion or waiver of the technical writing requirement and successful completion of the final project.
The area of emphasis within the program are environmental, geotechnical , structural and transportation engineering. The program is designed to meet the educational needs of a working professional engineer interested in focused, advanced studying civil engineering to enhance professional advancement.
