A master’s degree in Civil & Infrastructural Engineering from Khalifa University helps open opportunities for future success. The construction and building sector constitutes one of the main economic sectors in UAE and internationally. Despite this, there is still a significant deficit in highly specialized engineering graduates. The MSc in CIVI focuses on delivering MSc graduates who have acquired unique, specialized knowledge on topics that are not typically taught in other MSc programs in the region, nevertheless, they are vital in addressing the development needs of UAE and beyond. The unique expertise of CIVI MSc graduates makes them sought after by local employers like state agencies and (inter)national consulting firms as lead designers on topics of their expertise. Graduates of the program also go through rigorous training and research experience to enable them to pursue their studies at PhD level.
