About

The Civil Engineering program from University of British Columbia is suited to students who wish to pursue a graduate degree in a thesis based research program. An M.A.Sc. is expected to take about 24 months. The MASc thesis is prepared with guidance from your Research Supervisor, who must agree to its technical content and findings.

Overview

The thesis in the Civil Engineering program from University of British Columbia must be approved by a second reader, who may request revisions to the document. The Research Supervisor, in consultation with the second reader, assigns a grade to the thesis.
