Civil Engineering (PhD)
This advanced engineering program will prepare you to meet complex technical challenges through the acquisition of specialized knowledge and research expertise. You will have the opportunity to study in a stimulating research environment that is home to outstanding labs in hydraulics, the environment, geotechnics, and concrete infrastructure.
Applicants must have a M.Sc. or equivalent degree.
Applicants must demonstrate proficiency in French OR English. Students must ensure that they have a good understanding of English and, if necessary, take steps to improve their language skills during their studies (for example at Université Laval’s language school).
