Program Information

School:Lakehead University - Faculty of Graduate Studies
Field of Study:Civil Engineering, General
Description:The MSc in Civil Engineering satisfies the demand in academia and industry for highly-qualified personnel in the field of Civil Engineering. The MSc in Civil Engineering satisfies the demand for highly-qualified personnel in the field of Civil Engineering. This demand is fueled by the requirements to maintain an aging infrastructure and to maintain and develop natural resources with minimal environmental impact to natural systems. Sustainability and structural durability and the impact of climate change on civil engineering works have become increasingly important challenges in the field of civil engineering.

This program offers students the opportunity for advanced study and the development of independent research abilities in the discipline areas of construction, environmental, geotechnical and geoenvironmental, rock, structural, transportation and water resources engineering. Students will have the opportunity to conduct advanced study in emerging areas such as: intelligent construction equipment management and computer-integrated construction engineering; electrokinetic ground improvement and remediation; rockburst dynamics and dynamic stability of structures; structural fire engineering; structural health monitoring and structural dynamics; and studies on multiphase jets and plumes and dynamics of complex fluids. The program requirements are achieved through a combination of course work and research towards the completion of a thesis.
