Graduate students in the Department of Civil Engineering have a minimum annual salary of $17,500 (equal to the NSERC Masters scholarship), which includes teaching assistant (TA) positions for two terms. MASc students are funded for two years and PhD students are funded for three years, with contracts renewed annually subject to satisfactory performance and the availability of funding. The source of funding is mostly individual professors’ research projects as well as faculty funding for research and teaching assistantships.  Graduate students are also encouraged to apply for other funding such as the University of Victoria Fellowships, Mitacs Fellowships  and NSERC Postgraduate Scholarships.
