Learn not only to design construction projects, but also to manage them
What differentiates the ÉTS Master of Construction Engineering from other graduate programs in civil engineering? Here, you will learn not only to design construction projects, but also to manage them. Your studies will be supervised by teachers with real-world experience: Most of them have industry experience and do collaborative research work with commercial partners. In addition, by gaining a broad vision of specific construction industry issues, you will be able to make quicker, better informed decisions.
Are you a recent graduate in civil or construction engineering who wants to deepen your knowledge in a particular field, such as the development of sustainable materials, the impact of climate change on infrastructure, or building information modelling (BIM)? Or, are you already working in the field and looking to increase your expertise in construction design and management?
Whether you’re motivated by a desire to stand out in the job market, to get a promotion or to develop an innovation that will transform the industry, the ÉTS Master of Construction Engineering program will meet your needs.
What Will You Learn in the Master’s Program?
At ÉTS, our real-world practical Master’s programs build on a sound foundation of science. The majority of our professor-researchers have industry experience, and 60% of their research work is done in collaboration with businesses. So, throughout your training, you will be called on to resolve specific issues in the construction milieu, including:
- Managing construction work;
- Project management, both in terms of project organization and improvement, as well as in the resolution of technical problems;
- Research, innovation and design of construction works and civil infrastructure;
- Processes, methods and techniques for the design, implementation, evaluation, management, maintenance and rehabilitation of projects in buildings, road infrastructure, hydraulics and hydrology, geotechnical services, works of art, etc.
What’s the Difference between the Project Profile and the Research Profile?
The ÉTS Master's program includes two profiles. The thesis profile is focused on research and leads to the degree of Master of Applied Sciences (M.A.Sc.). The project profile will allow you to specialize in a particular area of engineering and will lead to the degree of Master of Engineering (M. Eng.).
What Degrees Provide Admission to the Master’s in Construction Engineering?
Holders of an engineering diploma or a bachelor's degree in civil engineering, construction engineering or a related field are eligible for the master’s in construction engineering.
Master's Degree in Construction Engineering with Thesis (research profile)
Would you like to continue into doctoral studies? Or work in the industry and do research and development? This profile will meet your needs.
The research project counts for 30 of the 45 credits of this program.
Master's Degree in Construction Engineering with Project (project profile)
Do you want to specialize in a technical field? This profile is perfect for you! Both practical and theoretical courses will help you deepen your knowledge in your chosen area.
The program totals 45 credits, including 15 credits for the application project or 6 credits for the technical project.
