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 two full courses, of which at least one 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 dissertation must be presented which will embody the results of an original investigation; the dissertation is to be defended in an oral examination. This program is intended mainly for full-time candidates but may be taken on a part-time basis.
