Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering

University of Maryland, A. James Clark School of Engineering
Campus Part time 1 - 5 years September 2017 USA College Park

Recent advances in computing, communications, sensing, and materials science are enabling the design of a new generation of large scale civil engineering systems. [+]

Recent advances in computing, communications, sensing, and materials science are enabling the design of a new generation of large scale civil engineering systems. Signature applications that are new to Civil Engineering due to these advances include: The next generation power grid that will link time-sensitive demand from home appliances, electric power cars, renewable energy sources, and other features for efficiency gains The Pearl River Tower Complex will be the most energy efficient skyscraper ever built (scheduled for completion in 2010) A Next Generation air traffic control and management system that incorporates advanced new vehicles, modernized avionics, and increasing levels of autonomy Modernization of waterways such as the Panama Canal and Bosporus Straights, Global natural gas and other energy supply chains (e.g., oil, coal) which involve a combination of engineering challenges as well as market, national, or regional goals Sustainable development for high-density urban areas. These systems will be required to support new functionality such as new types of interaction between infrastructure and people, have levels of performance that were previously unobtainable (e.g., in energy usage), and be economically efficient. In many cases, enhanced functionality and performance will be achieved through an improved ability to anticipate demand, monitor the surrounding (natural) environment, control system responses, and look ahead and anticipate events. Sometimes automation will replace some operations currently handled by humans. Future CEE systems will be far more heterogeneous than their predecessors and may be connected to other types of systems in completely new ways. This makes the task of system design, analysis and integration of multi-disciplinary concerns (e.g., reliability, efficiency, and system tradeoffs) much more difficult than in the past. Additionally, there is strong linkage between civil infrastructure systems and public policy or societal goals. Consider challenges in energy management and transportation or energy networks. If we want to reduce carbon emissions in the power and other sectors, how much do we need to change our current power grid in light of: Increased renewable generation (e.g., wind) and transmission expansion to connect the supply in less populated areas to where the load is in more populated regions The strong interaction between vehicle usage and carbon emissions (e.g., the role of electric cars on the current power grid) Using natural gas or other less carbon intense fossil fuels for the nation’s fleet of vehicles Objectives of the Civil Systems Program The goal of the University of Maryland Civil Systems program is to provide M.S and Ph.D. level education in interdisciplinary engineering systems typically found in civil infrastructure settings. The related research will concentrate on how to optimize system efficiency, reliability, cost, and other factors. Admission Requirements: Full admission as a degree seeking student requires the following prerequisites: A bachelor's degree, GPA of 3.0 or better, in engineering; preferably Civil and Environmental, however other engineering degrees may be considered, from an accredited institution. Courses in mathematics (Calculus I, II, III, & Differential Equations) are required to be considered for admission. Specific prerequisite requirements for specialization: Environmental & Water Resources: Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, ENCE 310, 411, 412, 431, 432 Geotechnical & Pavements: ENCE 340, 441, 447 Structures: ENCE 353, 454, 455 Transportation: ENCE 370, 470, 472 Further admissions requirements.

The University of Newcastle, GradSchool (Online)
Campus or Online Part time May 2017 Australia Newcastle

The program will involve presenters who are current practitioners in the industry as well as presenters from the University. The program will provide a case based approach to the study of Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction. The focus of the program is case based drawing on the expertise and experiences of current practitioners. [+]

In recent years, an increase in natural and human created disasters have adversely impacted the local communities and nations as a whole. Some disasters have international impacts requiring international intervention. Constructing a disaster resilient system involves interventions in the preparedness, emergency response and redevelopment phases of the disaster management cycle. Effective management of disasters involves numerous stakeholders including governments (local, state and federal), non-governmental organisations (not for profit and for profit) and communities (local, national and international) working together. This program applies recognised disaster management practices, providing graduates with the unique ability to work on approaches to building disaster resilience in context specific situations. The professional application of disaster management skills and techniques for preparing and responding to post disaster situations will develop graduates who are a valuable resource for local government bodies, non-governmental organisations, and national and international organisations/business involved or seeking to be involved in disaster management. Throughout this program you will develop unique and specialised strategic and operational disaster management skills that can be applied in the event of a disaster. As one of the only universities to offer this disaster management degree accommodating multiple discipline backgrounds, the University of Newcastle educates graduates to be immediately valuable to multiple disaster management stakeholder groups. Our advanced online learning system provides you with the flexibility and support to study anytime, anywhere to balance work, life and study. You can achieve your Master of Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction at a time that suits you. Is it for you? Hazards, natural or man-made, can create disaster events that leave communities in distress. Preparing for disasters require multiple stakeholder engagement and effective management of the goals. The pressure to urgently address complex and difficult disaster management decisions can result in reactive policies that may increase long-term risks and vulnerability of affected populations. Regardless of cause or blame, rebuilding the communities and infrastructure promptly and strategically with appropriately devised short-term and long term planning is paramount. Disaster preparedness and reconstruction involves primarily disaster risk reduction and building a resilient system, from a technical, economic, socio cultural and policy perspectives. Therefore, the management of situations resulting from disasters requires diverse knowledge, skills and approaches but it will essentially draw on fundamental theories and practices form multiple disciplines. In the Master of Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction you will learn the theory and practice of disaster management, from both disaster preparedness and post disaster reconstruction perspectives. This program, created by experienced professionals, will prepare you with the skills and knowledge to engage in the appropriate disaster management practices accommodating short and long term considerations aimed at building a resilient system. You will engage in practice and form the policies based on informed situational/critical analysis. If you would gain satisfaction from playing a key role in protecting and rebuilding communities from and after traumatic disasters, then the Master of Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction could be for you. Career Pathways The current trend in disaster events and created a significant domestic and international interest in the disaster management trained professionals. This program specifically address the niche and relatively new market encompassing professionals in government, for profit and not for profit sectors, who engage in or planning to engage in disaster management without a formal qualification in disaster management. With a Master of Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction you will have unique and specialised disaster management skills to be applied in the disaster management process. As one of the only universities to offer this disaster management degree accommodating multiple discipline backgrounds, the University of Newcastle educates graduates to be immediately valuable to multiple disaster management stakeholder groups including: State, federal and local government non-governmental organisations (NGOs); and private contracting organisations. As a newly developed program, the University of Newcastle will be seeking endorsement by the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) and Royal Institution of Charted Surveyors in 2016. With this accreditation graduates will have an industry recognised qualification, supporting the relevance of the program’s content. Specialisations The Master of Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction is distinctive in its purpose and content. The key focus of your learning will be disaster preparedness (i.e disaster risk mitigation) and post disaster redevelopment. You will explore and understand the conceptual approaches and operational processes in the context of building disaster resilience. Advancing on the fundamental principles of disaster management, the program will develop necessary skills and knowledge for you to engage in diverse disaster situations. The course is comprised of six core courses and one elective (direct entry into the Masters): Post-disaster Project Management Disaster Mitigation and Sustainable Re-development Professional Practice for Disaster Management Economics of and for Disaster Management Social and Policy Considerations for Disaster Management and Disaster Management Research Project (on a topic of your choice to support your career goals). You need to choose one electives from an comprehensive list of directed courses that focus on construction project management, business management, environmental management and social change and capacity building. Throughout the program you will learn to critically analyse and apply relevant theories and practices to multiple disaster management scenarios.

Civil engineers take on tasks and responsibilities in all areas of our everyday technological environment. They plan, design, build and maintain buildings and facilities of all kinds; develop materials and components, construction and method of operation, calculation methods and software; organize, calculate and monitor processes and procedures. The training requirements of modern civil engineering are just as varied and increasingly complex; the place of the classical architect is now the "high-tech engineer" resigned. With so many practical problems in civil engineering with additional technical and managerial skills and key management techniques are required. This is provided at Biberach University master's degree in "Civil Engineering". The course content is practical and oriented to the versatile, specific requirements in one of the largest professional fields worldwide. Master Key data Structure / process of the Master Program The master's program is modular and consists of attendance phases (block courses, etc.) and controlled domestic contribution (e-learning). Lectures and seminars are held on Saturdays in part. Thus, the master's degree is also part-time possible. Each winter semester starts a new master's degree program. However, the course can be started either in the winter semester or the summer semester. The students in the summer semester can be integrated without loss of time in the current module. The standard period of study including the Master Thesis 3 semesters and ends with the academic degree of Master of Civil Engineering (M.Eng.). For that master's degree student receives 90 ECTS. As a prerequisite for the Master's degree in Civil Engineering proof of a bachelor's degree or diploma statements with above average examination results in the study of civil engineering is to provide a domestic or foreign university or a recognized equivalent degree than at the level of at least three years of study. Teaching content / priorities The training is designed so that both graduates can attend the "structural engineering" and the "Water and transport". The curriculum of the Master program "Civil Engineering" at Biberach University are taught on the basis of multi-layered specific issue positions of a real large-scale project. Here, for a selected topic (eg airports, exhibition, infrastructure projects) Planning Basics analyzed and optimized solutions. In addition to technical issues and economic, environmental and legal decision parameters are taken into account. In key stages of their studies, knowledge transfer takes place through close links with companies and government agencies. For example, accompanied in collaboration with renowned software companies specialized courses in applied Bauinformatik and finished with certificates and programming techniques taught. A separate course "Business English" and various excursions round off the range of topics. What specific curriculum waiting for me in the master's program? The building and planning technical knowledge from the Bachelor studies are deepened project-related master's degree in "Civil Engineering" and expanded. The following contents are included: - Construction or planning technical analysis, design and construction - Innovative Technologies - Applied Construction Informatics: u. a IT in the infrastructure sector, finite element methods (FEM), Computer Aided Design (CAD), Programming - Scientific development of specific technical issues in collaboration with the interdisciplinary institutes Biberach University - Business components and Contract Law - Construction and Project Management - Business English Under the project management, other key qualifications for careers purchase.
