The Graduate Program in Civil Engineering offers advanced training leading to Master of Applied Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Three main research themes distinguish the program: infrastructure, resilience, and sustainability.
Infrastructure rehabilitation and replacement is the principal goal of this theme. Research focuses on above-ground infrastructure, such as roads, bridges, buildings, wastewater treatment facilities, and on buried infrastructure, such as stormwater collection networks, and large-scale tunnels. Other focus areas include intelligent transportation systems and freight transport networks.
The resilience theme emphasizes the performance of civil infrastructure during extreme loading events, including fires, and the influence of climate change. The development of novel materials and construction technologies that improve the resilience of civil infrastructure to ensure post-extreme-event functionality, such as earthquakes and floods, is one of the primary objectives.
Sustainability research focuses on developing technologies for construction using recycled and renewable materials. Other focus areas include construction over marginal-quality lands, postmining rehabilitation of landscapes, remediation of contaminated groundwater, sustainable building design, and resource recovery.
