Admission

Refer to 3.1 Admissions.

Accelerated Master's Program

Students entering their third year are encouraged to consider the possibility of continuing their education, by enrolling in a master's degree program after completion of their BSc. By taking two or three courses (graduate or undergraduate) during their undergraduate program, which would be additional to their undergraduate degree program requirements, students will position themselves to be able to complete their master's degree in 12 to 16 months after completion of their BSc. Students considering this possibility must consult with the Associate Head, Undergraduate Studies or the Department Head and should review the Faculty of Graduate Studies admission requirements.

Notes:

1. One of the Group B Technical Elective course requirements may be satisfied by a 500-level or higher-level course from either the Faculty of Science or the Schulich School of Engineering with the approval of the Department Head. The higher-level course can be a 600-level or higher-level course from the Department of Civil Engineering if the student has a GPA higher than 3.00 at the end of third year and with the approval of the Department Head.

2. All technical elective courses have similar workloads even though the hours in the timetable are variable.

3. Optional undergraduate courses and all graduate courses are offered, in any calendar year, at the discretion of the Department of Civil Engineering.
