Graduate Program

Program Information

The Department of Civil and Geological Engineering offers three levels of graduate degree programs in Civil Engineering, leading to the degrees of Master of Engineering (M.Eng.), Master of Science (M.Sc.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.).

Gaining entrance into our programs is a competitive process, and you cannot apply until you have identified a faculty member who is willing to serve as your supervisor. Students accepted into M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs are generally funded to some degree by their academic supervisor once they begin their research program, and they may be able to access additional funds via scholarships and teaching or research fellowships. No special forms are required to request funding, scholarships or fellowships at the time of application. Please note that M.Eng. Students are not typically funded.

Information on our programs and the applications process can be found at the College of Graduate Studies and Research (CGSR) website (http://grad.usask.ca/programs/civil-engineering.php). Specific information provided at CGSR’s site include:

For Civil Engineering graduate programs, we require prospective students to complete a Pre-Qualification Form.

Pre-Qualification

For Civil Engineering graduate programs, we require prospective students to complete a Pre-Qualification Form 

Pre-Qualification Forms are compiled and circulated to faculty members once every 4-6 weeks. You will be notified when your form has been circulated.

If you do not hear from us within 8 weeks of your Pre-Qualification Form being circulated, then we unfortunately do not have a spot for you to study at this time.

We ask that you do not send any documents during the Pre-Qualification process.

Please use the following link to complete the pre-qualification form: http://www.engr.usask.ca/Apps/grad_applications/ce

Once you have found a faculty member who has agreed to supervise you, please complete the online application at http://grad.usask.ca/programs/civil-engineering.php#Applicationprocess

Terms start September 1, January 1, and May 1.  While there is no formal application deadline, a complete application package should be in the department’s hands 4 months before the start of term to ensure sufficient processing time – especially for international students.

Please note that due to the volume of applications that we receive, applications are only updated when you find a faculty member who has agreed to supervise you. Any questions can be sent to civil.gradinquiry@usask.ca
