The graduate program and research goals of the Department of Civil Engineering are consistent with the mission of both Queen's University and the civil engineering profession.


These goals, which reflect the educational, professional and research needs of society and the environment are as follows:

  • to attract and educate students at the graduate level who, upon completion of their studies, will possess an advanced understanding of the state-of-the-art and state-of-practice within selected areas of the natural environment and infrastructure and will have the potential to be among the nation's best and whose excellence will be respected by the international community.
  • to advance the state-of-the-art and the state-of-practice through a combination of internationally recognized research in specific areas and nationally respected service to the profession, to government and industry, and to society in general.

Applicants are accepted into a Master's (M.Eng or MASc) or Doctoral (PhD) Civil Engineering Program from Queen's University under the general regulations of the School of Graduate Studies and Research providing they also satisfy the requirements of the Department. 

Normally, the minimum Departmental requirements are a four-year Bachelor's degree with a standing in the mid B range (70% graduating average or a ranking in the top third of the graduating class where number grades are not available). Applicants with a Bachelors degree in a cognate science may be admitted, at the discretion of the department, to a M.A.Sc. degree program.
