What will I learn?

The MASc program includes a foundational base of graduate courses followed by a research thesis. Many research projects involve industrial partnerships and networking opportunities, project management experience, and collaboration with leading experts.

The research conducted in the Department of Civil and Mineral Engineering is addressing the need for innovative solutions to society’s needs, from the deep underground to the world’s tallest structures. The dedicated students, staff, and professors are pursuing exciting research ranging from nanoscale investigations into water contamination and concrete properties, to the large-scale tests of structures under full-scale simulated earthquakes, to development of real-time mass transit models to solve urban congestion. Research is informed by extensive collaboration and interaction with industry and government partners. Facilities and breadth of research expertise are among the best in the world, offering great opportunities for involvement in ground-breaking research.

The Department of Civil and Mineral Engineering is organized into five interdisciplinary research themes: Cities & Infrastructure; Complex Systems; Energy & Environment; Mining & Subsurface Systems; and Transformative Technologies. These themes encompass the traditional civil engineering areas of Structural Engineering; Transportation Engineering; Environmental Engineering; Building Engineering and Construction Management; and Mining and Geomechanics.
