Programs of Study

Applicants are accepted into a Master's (M.Eng or MASc) or Doctoral (PhD) Program under the general regulations of the School of Graduate Studies and Research providing they also satisfy the requirements of the Department. Normally, the minimum Departmental requirements are a four-year Bachelor's degree with a standing in the mid B range (70% graduating average or a ranking in the top third of the graduating class where number grades are not available). Applicants with a Bachelors degree in a cognate science may be admitted, at the discretion of the department, to a M.A.Sc. degree program.

All research students must successfully complete CIVL 801 a non-credit course in laboratory safety, at the first opportunity after their initial registration. This is a requirement to graduate.
