Courses

The core courses in our MASc graduate program are:

  • Sustainability Seminar Series in Civil Engineering (CIVE 595)
  • MASc Thesis (CIVE 599)
  • MASc students are allowed to take two Directed Studies (CIVE 590) courses. Only one of these can be directly related to the thesis topic.

The core courses in our PhD graduate program are:

  • Research Methods (CIVE 601)
  • Sustainability Seminar Series in Civil Engineering (CIVE 695)
  • Candidacy Examination (CIVE 693)
  • PhD Dissertation (CIVE 699)
  • PhD students are allowed to take one Directed Studies (CIVE 590) course.

As we grow our graduate program we will be offering a number of graduate courses in our research themes of green buildings and structures, sustainable cities, industrial ecology and sustainable water resources.
