As a student in the Civil Engineering (PhD Thesis) program, you'll get the chance to collaborate with some of the most creative and innovative researchers in Canada. The program is ideal for students seeking to do original research as they grow their skills by specializing in a sub-discipline of civil engineering. These currently include Biomechanics, Bituminous Materials, Geotechnical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Structures and Solid Mechanics, Transportation Engineering, Water Resources, Energy and Environment (Interdisciplinary), and Environmental Engineering (Interdisciplinary). Students get to complete an in-depth, original research project related to their chosen sub-discipline, and write a corresponding thesis.
All graduate students must pay general fees each year, as well as program fees.
