Educational Objectives of M.Sc. Program

Civil Engineering M.Sc. Program aims to graduate students who:

  1. have the depth for conducting independent works in the field of Civil Engineering,

  2. can have leadership in adapting and applying academic knowledge in production and service sectors,

  3. possess qualification for further academic work in the field of Civil Engineering.

Learning Outcomes of M.Sc. Program

  1. Ability to reach knowledge in breadth and depth through scientific research in Civil Engineering field; to have extensive knowledge about current techniques and procedures together with their constraints.

  2. Ability to complement and apply knowledge by scientific methods utilizing limited or missing data; to use knowledge in different disciplines effectively by blending them.

  3. Ability to formulate Civil Engineering problems; to develop novel and original ideas and procedures for their solutions and to use innovative procedures in solutions.

  4. Awareness of new and developing applications in Civil Engineering; ability to investigate and learn these applications when required.                                    

  5. Ability to design and apply analytical, and modeling and experimental based research; to solve and interpret complex situations encountered in this process.

  6. Ability to lead multi-disciplinary teams; to develop solution approaches in complicated situations and to take responsibility.

  7. Ability to develop novel and/or original ideas and methods; to develop innovative solutions for the design of systems, parts or the processes.

  8. Ability to communicate orally or in writing the process and the results of Civil Engineering studies systematically and openly in national or international platforms.

  9. Ability to master a foreign language (English) at the European Language Portfolio B2 General Level to communicate orally or in writing.

  10. Ability to recognize social, scientific and ethical values in the process of collection, interpretation and publishing of data, and in all professional activities.

  11. Ability to visualize social and environmental dimensions of Civil Engineering applications and to observe these dimensions in professional practice.

  12. Ability to develop appropriate methodology and procedures for the modeling, improvement, control and design of complex systems for a specified target.
