The normal requirement for admission to a master's program is a bachelor's degree with at least high honours standing in civil engineering. Graduates from engineering programs other than civil engineering, or Honours science programs with a mathematics content equivalent to the civil engineering program will have to take a minimum of four qualifying undergraduate civil engineering courses in their area of graduate specialty. Graduates from other science programs will have to take all the core engineering undergraduate mathematics courses in addition to the requirements specified in above. Undergraduate civil engineering courses will not be accepted towards a graduate degree. Graduate students may still be required to take undergraduate courses for credit to fulfil the admission requirements. No more than one half of the program credit requirements or that stipulated in the regulations of the university in which the student is registered, whichever is less, can be transferred at admission.
