MASTER OF SCIENCE IN CIVIL ENGINEERING (MSCE)

University of Lahore

Master of Science in

Civil Engineering (MSCE)

Master of Science in Civil Engineering is designed to produce graduates with enhanced knowledge in the fields of:

1. Structural Engineering

2. Geotechnical Engineering

3. Hydraulics and Irrigation Engineering

4. Environmental Engineering

The degree program focuses on providing skills required in different fields of Civil Engineering. The students will study eight subjects consisting of six from core and two from elective courses, in addition to a six credit hours research thesis mentioned in the curriculum approved by the academic council.

 

The program has minimum of three years supervised study period that may be extended to a maximum of five years towards successful completion of all requirements and award of the Master’s Degree. Under the program, student is required to undertake minimum of 24 credit hours of course work and 6 credit hours of research depending upon the area of focus thus making a total of minimum 30 credit hours while Maximum of 6 credit hours shall be allowed per semester. The duration of the semester would be 16 to 18 weeks

Degree

Requirements

Minimum CGPA of 2.5 in semester system or 60% marks in Annual system in BSc Civil Engineering for all four disciplines. However for the Environmental Engineering programme, students with Bachelors degree in engineering from other disciplines such as environmental, chemical and other related may be considered on case-by-case basis

Minimum Graduate Assessment Test (GAT) score 50%

Passing written entry exam

Successful interview

Why this

Degree

The students of the graduate program will be well equipped with the knowledge of Civil Engineering and research jobs in Government and Public Sector, departments, industries, research centers and technical institutions. They will be capable enough to develop their own firms, research centers and will provide consultancy services to Government and Private sectors.
