Civil engineering activities cover very broad areas of disciplines, including structural and construction engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, water resources and environmental engineering, etc. Civil engineering essentially deals with all the physical infrastructure and supplies that support and sustain human activities. In a sense, the advancement in civil engineering practice is an accurate measure of the level of civilisation and it provides the foundation for economic and business competitiveness of a country.
The Master of Science in Civil Engineering programme in NTU is intended to equip students with the latest advancements in knowledge and technology in modern civil engineering practice.
The course leading to the degrees of Master of Science in Civil Engineering comprises coursework with or without a M.Sc. dissertation. A total of 30 Academic Units (AU) is required for graduation. In general a candidate will take subjects from several disciplines within civil engineering and graduate with a fairly broad knowledge, leading to the degree of Master of Science in Civil Engineering – M.Sc. (Civil Eng).
