1 MASTER OF SCIENCE IN CIVIL ENGINEERING Introduction Civil engineering covers such diverse areas of concern as design of structural systems, water resource planning, treatment and ultimate disposal of noxious solid and liquid wastes, design of building systems for rural and urban dwellers in the commercial and industrial sectors, development of transportation systems, construction methods and management, and implementation and management of public work projects designed to improve the environment without due prejudice to the health, safety and welfare of the public. The formation of new communities, cities and industries especially in Mindanao, the recent demands of the population for higher level of safety of the built environment calls for civil engineers with higher level of scientific and technical know-how. Undergraduate programs in civil engineering alone are not sufficient to meet the requirements necessary to produce high-level manpower resources for scientific and technological advancement and to satisfy the research and development demands of an industrialized country. Objectives The MSCE program is offered with the following objectives: 1. to provide high-level manpower resources in the field of civil engineering needed by industries and agencies in both the private and public sectors; and 2. to develop the competence of Filipino scientists and engineers in the field of civil engineering through promotion and support of technical researches and related scientific activities. Admission Requirements Admission to the program is contingent upon the policies and guidelines of the Graduate School. In addition, all applicants must meet the following requirements: 1. The student must have an undergraduate engineering degree from a recognized institution. In the event that the degree is in a field other than civil engineering, the student may be required to complete a set of prerequisite undergraduate courses before graduate degree credits may be accrued. 2. The student must have an undergraduate weighted average grade of at least 2.0 or equivalent, or must be able to show some evidence of potential ability to pursue a graduate degree, e.g., excellent performance in teaching or research, or experience in the industry or private sector as evidenced by a strong recommendation from his immediate superior or former mentors.
2 Degree Requirements The degree may be earned through a thesis or coursework option. The minimum course requirements for each option are as follows: Thesis Option Coursework Option Core Courses 15 units Core Courses 24 units Foundation Courses 6 Foundation Courses 9 Electives 3 Electives 9 Thesis 6 Special Project Comprehensive Exam Total 30 units Total 45 units Core courses are identified by CE prefixes. They may be taken from any of the five areas of discipline, namely, Engineering Construction and Management, Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Water Resources Engineering. The offering of such courses is based on the availability of faculty members vis-à-vis the number of students meeting the five-enrollee-per-class requirement. Core courses taken beyond the minimum requirement may be credited as electives. Foundation courses are identified by ES prefixes. These courses provide the students necessary background to tackle the core courses. ES 201 is a required foundation course and must be passed within the first year. Electives are courses that may be taken, in consultation with the adviser, from any of the foundation courses of the MOE or MSCE program, or from any discipline-related courses of the MOE program. Likewise, core courses of MSCE program beyond the 15-unit or 24-unit minimum requirement for the thesis or coursework option, respectively, may also be credited as electives. Special Project is a course in which the student conducts a practice-oriented study culminating to the presentation of a project report. Comprehensive exam is a written exam given to students undergoing the coursework option. This is aimed at determining the students' ability to integrate and apply knowledge that they have acquired in their program of study.
