Master’s in Civil Engineering
Introduction to the Program
The Master’s in Civil Engineering at Wuhan University of Technology is a three year postgraduate program taught in English for international students.
Wuhan University of Technology is one of the leading Chinese universities accredited by the Ministry of Education and one of the universities constructed in priority by the “State Project 211” for Chinese higher education institutions. WHUT was merged on May 27th 2000, from the former Wuhan University of Technology (established in 1948), Wuhan Transportation University (established in 1946) and Wuhan Automotive Polytechnic University (established in 1958).

About the Program
This Program is specially designed based on the existing master programs in civil engineering at the School of Civil Engineering and Architecture, Wuhan University of Technology. It aims at educating the master degree candidates by high-level experts in civil engineering and grasping the fundamental theories and specialized skills of civil engineering disciplines, and the training of ability of research and application. As proposed, this program would require the students to be able to:
● Well understand the deep theories and ongoing policy issues concerning civil engineering and keep updated along with their advancement;
● Built an independent thinking ability on civil engineering theories and their applications;
● Create strong potentials to communicate with research team members;
● Write research papers, be capable in conducting seminars and working activities;
● Infrastructure Systems
● Highway and Bridge Engineering
● Geotechnical Engineering(soil mechanics and foundations)
● Environmental Engineering
● Engineering and Project Management
● Theories of Architectural Design and History of Architecture
During the study, the students should complete investigations as assigned by their supervisors. Following that, a formal thesis proposal presentation is needed just after the required credits are fulfilled. Each student should prepare a presentation on their selected topic for an evaluation process and the approval is subject to the quality of their research work.
Throughout the academic years, the students should actively center on learning and research under the guidance of supervisors. The scientific work usually includes speeches in seminars, collecting information, writing research papers, participating academic conferences and joining a research group.
The topic of master degree thesis should be of theoretical significance or important application prospects. All civil engineering issues are optional topics.
This program is a 3-year master program in which two major sections are placed separately in course study and research training. The completion of this program depends on the credits earned by the students from the under-mentioned courses under the supervisor’s instruction after enrollment and research work. 28 credits are required in this program, among which 10 credits are from major course taking.
Main courses: Chinese, Introduction to China, Finite Element Methods, Dynamic Analysis of Structures, Advanced Reinforced Concrete Design, Advanced Steel Design, Engineering Project Management, Numerical Methods in Structural Engineering, Earthquake Engineering, Computer-Aided Engineering, Architectural Theory, History of Architecture, Structural Design of Highway Bridges, Advanced Foundation Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Advanced Water and Wastewater Treatment, Business Fundamentals for Engineering, Advanced Studies in Civil Engineering(Lecture Series), Thesis Proposal, Thesis Defense.
Autumn enrollment: June 30th
