The Master programme in Civil Engineering emphasizes on fundamental principles that prepare young engineers concerned with the challenges of meeting society´s needs in a rapidly changing environment. CEE students undertake investigation, research, planning and design in an academic environment that is based on cooperation between faculty, students, industry, research and professional organisations. The students study in a dynamic environment and have the opportunity to work with and learn from research teams at the forefront of knowledge.

Graduate students at the Master level have the option to choose between two tracks of studies, leading to either a Master of Science degree (M.Sc.) or to a Master of Engineering degree (M.Eng.). A transfer between the two academic tracks is allowed only after an application by the student and approval by the Departmental Board. The Department also reserves the right to mandate a student transfer between the two academic tracks (fromM.Sc. to M.Eng.) if the student´s academic performance during the required M.Sc. research/thesis is unsatisfactory, and his/her advisor recommends it.

Duration: The minimum period of study for full-time students is three (3) academic semesters and the maximum period of study is eight (8) academic semesters.

The postgraduate programmes of each department are supervised by a three-member Postgraduate Programmes Committee, chaired by a Postgraduate Programmes Coordinator. The Coordinator may be the chairperson of the department or a member of the academic staff appointed by the chairperson. The other members of the committee are appointed by the Departmental Board. The Committee is appointed for a two-year term.

For every student in the Postgraduate Programme, the department appoints an Academic Supervisor, whereas at the research stage of the Ph.D. a Research Supervisor is appointed. Candidate students select a member of the academic staff to act as their Research Supervisor. The student´s choice must be approved by the Postgraduate Programmes Coordinator. The Research Supervisor guides the students in their research and provides the necessary help and advice.

Master of Science (M.Sc.) Thesis

The M.Sc. degree requires the successful completion of an original research study and associated thesis. Students select a research topic in consultation with their advisor. Students must submit a thesis proposal to the academic advisor at least 2 semesters before the intended date of thesis defence. Students must submit their thesis to the Defense Committee appointed at least two weeks prior to the intended date of graduation. The intellectualmerit of the thesis must be based on research findings by the M.Sc. candidate, distinguished clearly fromthe work of others, testifying to the candidate´s personal contribution, and acknowledging support by others in or outside the University.
