ME Civil Engineering

The Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering includes the development of civil engineering concepts amongst the students along with the technology that takes part in the processes. The building and designing construction materials of civil engineering are also included in the course works and projects with a practical touch to them for most students enrolled in this program are professionals in the same field and have a fair background of civil engineering.

The course work will include research papers as well so that the students can learn the insights of civil engineering and develop fair concepts on theories as well. It will further help them to grow on their career with latest conceptual learning at Queensville University.

 

What will you learn from this course

Through this Masters program you will be able to do the following:

  • You will work on research based project.
  • You will able to apply engineering principles within and outside the classroom
  • Develop skill set relevant to employers need
  • Students are able to take leadership roles and move up the career ladder more quickly

Construction Planning and Scheduling 2 Follows a logical progression, introducing precedence diagramming early and following with sessions on activity durations, resource allocations, network schedules, and more, and reflects current trends in scheduling (short-interval scheduling, computer scheduling, linear scheduling etc.) and includes sessions on arrow diagramming and PERT.
Physical Performance of Buildings 2 Examines performance rationale and performance requirements. Outdoor and indoor climate conditions are described and calculation values are discussed, the performance concept is specified at the building level and at the building envelope level, and heat-air-moisture material properties are defined.
Method of Construction Projects Risk Assessment 2 Comprehensive risk analysis in construction projects. MOCRA can be described as a hybrid method. Unlike other methods, MOCRA allows its user to allocate risks in the material-financial plans.
Statics and Strength of Materials for Building Construction 2 An accessible and visually oriented introduction to structural theory, with illustrations and examples of building frameworks and components to enable students to visually connect theoretical concepts with the experiential nature of real buildings and materials.
Control of Traffic Systems in Buildings 2 Presents the state of the art in the analysis and control of transportation systems in buildings focusing primarily on elevator groups and covers the theory and design of passenger traffic and cargo transport systems, together with actual operational examples and topics of special current interest such as noisy, on-line and algorithmic optimization

Prestressed Concrete Design 2 Theory of prestressed and post-tensioned members. Covers analysis and design of prestressed concrete beams, slabs, box girders, and bridge girders by elastic and ultimate strength methods. Precast and cast-in-place system construction techniques will be included.
Concrete and Masonry Building Systems 2 Design of reinforced concrete two-way slabs and reinforced masonry systems for buildings. Includes design of bearing walls, shear walls, lintels, pilasters, slender columns, torsional beams and connections. A design project may be included during the semester.
Advanced Structural Timber Design 2 Advanced design of timber structures, including arches and traditional timber frames, advanced shear wall design, advanced connection design, including timber connectors, and advanced analysis and behavior of wood, including cumulative damage modeling.
Structural Dynamics 2 Free and forced vibration of undamped and damped single degree of freedom systems. Multiple degree-of-freedom systems, including shear buildings and frames. Basic seismic design.
Project Delivery Systems for Construction 2 Traditional and alternative project delivery systems, including Design-Bid-Build, Design-Build, Construction Management At-Risk, and Integrated Project Delivery. Covers management approaches, procurement options, basis of reimbursement, roles and responsibilities, Building Information Modeling, lean construction, and sustainability are also discussed relative to these delivery systems.

Highway Design 3 Advanced highway design, including horizontal and vertical alignment, cross-section elements, super elevation, and other road design topics. Includes extensive use of highway design computer software with a complete roadway design project using software.
Transportation Planning 3 Introduction to urban transportation planning, travel characteristics, demand forecasting techniques, corridor studies, traffic impact studies, and public transit planning and operations.
Airport Planning and Design 3 Introduction to the air transportation system, airport planning studies, demand forecasting, aircraft characteristics, runway requirements, airport layout and design. Also includes environmental impacts, airport capacity and operations, terminal and ground access planning and analysis.
Railroad Track Engineering and Design 3 Railroad location and operation, track structure, curves, grades, subgrade and drainage, ballast and sub-ballast, ties, rail, turnouts and crossings, and rail facility planning and design.
Stochastic Hydrology 3 Application of statistics to problems in surface hydrology. Topics include the flood flow and streamflow frequency analysis, goodness-of-fit tests, model selection, treatment of historical and censored data, regionalization and regression, time series analysis, Bayesian inference, sensitivity and uncertainty analysis methods.
Water Resources Planning and Management 3 Economic and environmental aspects of water use. Topics include flood damage reduction, water demand and hydrologic forecasting, water supply planning, and water resource systems operation.

Thesis 3 An independent research and scholar reporting on a selected topic specifically selected from related subjects. The department schedules and coordinates a number of seminars to assist students selecting the topics and to fine tune their work up to reporting. Credit is granted based on the quality of final product after evaluation of correctness, simplicity and clarity, amount of work done, amount of references and materials used and optimality factors.
