Our graduate programs are designed to prepare students for successful and rewarding professional careers in civil or environmental engineering. Graduates will find themselves meeting the challenges of efficient building design, improving the design of water and wastewater treatment facilities, traffic congestion, energy needs and urban redevelopment. As a civil and environmental engineering graduate, you will be able to directly impact the health and wellbeing of the general public in many Canadian communities.
The University of Windsor offers two master-level engineering programs --- Master of Engineering (MEng) and Master of Applied Science (MASc). The MEng is a course-based program designed for working professionals or recent graduates who want to increase their knowledge in multiple, advanced topics. The MASc program is a research-based program that allows students to progress to the PhD level upon successful completion.
The Civil and Environmental Engineering department offers MEng, MASc and/or PhD degrees in the following areas:
(MEng) Master of Engineering - course-based program
(MASc) Master of Applied Science - research-based program
MASc (Thesis Option) - four graduate courses are required to be taken and research is required to be conducted that results in a Thesis over approximately two years.
MASc (Major Paper Option) - eight graduate courses are required to be taken and less advanced research is conducted that results in a Major Paper over approximately two years.
(PhD) Doctor of Philosophy - research-based program
