As a postgraduate student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, you will have the opportunity to make a world of difference by building knowledge at the forefront of the field, helping minimize environmental hazards, and improving the quality of people’s lives.

The Civil Engineering field is developing rapidly. Almost any solution to a societal problem has some connection with civil engineering. Such solutions include the development, utilization, and control of resources for the benefit of people. Broad-based and in-depth knowledge of the discipline together with an understanding of new design concepts and technologies is essential for those who wish to become leaders in this part of the engineering profession.

The Department's postgraduate programs seek to develop such knowledge and skills and to relate research efforts closely to the interests and needs of the society so that our research is relevant and has practical value. Postgraduates may concentrate on structural, environmental, geotechnical engineering, water resources, transportation, construction engineering, or infrastructure development.

The MPhil program focuses on strengthening students' knowledge in certain areas of Civil and Structural Engineering and exposing them to the issues involved in the conception, design, construction, maintenance, and use of structures and facilities. Students are required to undertake coursework and successfully complete a thesis to demonstrate competence in research.
