Graduate Studies Programs of Study Applied Sustainability


Applied Sustainability

The Collaborative Masterís in Applied Sustainability (MAS) program offers M.Eng. and M.A.Sc. students training in a multidisciplinary environment spanning engineering departments and linking with researchers in the School of Policy Studies. The program allows students to undertake cutting-edge research under the supervision of internationally recognized investigators in diverse Applied Sustainability fields. This collaborative program provides opportunities for multidisciplinary research and learning that will be invaluable for the graduate studentís career development. Areas of research interest include: 1) Applied Sustainability and Energy Technology, 2) Applied Sustainability and Fresh Water Systems, 3) Applied Sustainability and Resource Management and 4) Applied Sustainability and Policy Studies.

Building on the applied sustainability strategic theme of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, the objective of the MAS program is to expose students to the implementation of sustainable engineering solutions within the context of broader sustainability theory. To do this properly, engineering students must not only advance their technical education, but must gain insights into how public policy impacts on the success of engineering solutions to multidisciplinary sustainability problems.

The program is available to Masterís students associated with the six member programs at Queenís University.

Application Procedure

Applicants are accepted under the general regulations of the School of Graduate Studies and of the member graduate programs.

The program is offered at only the Masterís level. For further details, interested students are encouraged to contact the representative from the department that is best aligned with their current research interest:

†Chemical Engineering: Prof. Brant Peppley

Civil Engineering: Prof. Bruce Anderson

Electrical and Computer Engineering: Prof. Alireza Bakhshai

Geological Sciences and Geological Engineering: Prof. Gema Olivo

Mechanical and Materials Engineering: Prof. Andrew Pollard

Mining Engineering: Prof. Jamie.Archibald

Program of Study

The program is available to eligible, approved Master's students associated with the six member programs at Queen's University.

Students will enroll in their respective home departments and must meet the program requirements of their home departments.

There will be two mandatory core courses students in the program must take: CMAS-801* Topics in Applied Sustainability and CMAS-897* Applied Sustainability Seminar Series.

M.A.Sc. students take four courses plus a thesis, plus the seminar series.†M.Eng. students take eight courses, one of which may be a†project course, plus the seminar series.

Upon graduation, students will have "with specialization in Applied Sustainability" added to their official transcripts.

Financial Support Full-time students are encouraged to seek external financial support and are encouraged to apply for NSERC and OGS graduate scholarships. Fellowships and teaching assistantships are available through the University and students are automatically considered for these, on a competitive basis, upon admission to one of the member programs.
