A growing population, aging infrastructure, a changing climate, and pollution challenges to our city’s sustainability and quality of life. Since more than half of the world’s population living in cities today, this highlights the need to look holistically at the nation’s infrastructure throughout its life, from the planning stages through design, construction, operation, maintenance, and rehabilitation.

This program is a 2-year interdisciplinary program that aims to prepare new generations of civil engineers to gain a broad range of domain knowledge including urban and infrastructure planning, geotechnical and structural systems, construction management, transportation systems analysis, environmental and sustainability-related policies.

Program Structure

The program consists of 24 credits of coursework and 12 credits of thesis. The required courses take 15 credits. The elective courses, chosen to suit student’s interests and research topics, must be at least 9 credits.

Study Plan

The normal path of study takes 4 semesters (2 years). The first semester provides foundation courses to broaden the professional horizon. The second semester offers a variety of elective courses. In the third semester, besides additional elective courses, research proposal in relation to individual’s preference must be prepared with approval of your thesis advisor(s). During the fourth semester, students should complete thesis and oral defense exam.
