Master's Degree


A candidate for the Master’s degree may proceed by either a thesis (M.A.Sc.) or project (M.Eng.) program. In each case the candidate is required to spend at least one calendar year in full-time graduate study, or the equivalent in part-time graduate study at McMaster University. All full-time Master’s candidates must attend and participate in the Department of Civil Engineering Graduate Student Seminar Day each year, for the first 6 terms (24 months) of study. Regulations for Master’s examinations are available from the Department.

Requirements


Candidates will be required to complete satisfactorily the equivalent of at least three full courses, of which at least 1.5 must be from within the Department of Civil Engineering at McMaster University. Additional course work may be prescribed if deemed necessary by the candidate’s research supervisor. In addition to the above course requirements, all full-time Master’s candidates must attend and participate in the Department of Civil Engineering Graduate Student Seminar Day each year, for the first 6 terms (24 months) of study. A report must be presented on a project which demonstrates ability to carry out independent study and reach a satisfactory conclusion. The report must be approved by the department and presented orally to the department. This program is primarily intended for part-time M.Eng. candidates, but may be taken by full-time students.
