The Professional Master of CE Program offers a year of advanced study for graduate students with previous professional degrees in civil engineering (or equivalent with a strong knowledge background). This Professional Master's degree program is an interdisciplinary program of study with a concentrated time for completion.
The program is intended for qualified students who already have professional work experience. Students without professional experience after completion of the professional degree may be admitted, depending on the quality of their work. Students must demonstrate evidence of high-quality work and potential for development based on their grade-point average, letters of recommendation. Classes generally take place in the evenings (6.00 pm – 9.00 pm).
The program's goals are to further train professionals in civil engineering who are able to work effectively in teams across a large range of scales and with a well-developed knowledge. The program offers a unique blend of courses in different areas. Students will share working methods, acquire additional skills, and explore new avenues of professional development under the supervision of an interdisciplinary group of faculty members in the Department of Civil Engineering at Epoka University.
The Professional Master degree combines a core curriculum with the opportunity to take elective courses tailored to a student's particular areas of interest. These courses typically relate to the student's thesis topic and are selected by the student in consultation with department advisor. To earn the Professional Master degree, students must complete one year in residence, 60 ECTS credits of coursework, the core curriculum, and a Master's thesis.
The program is taught in English. Therefore, Albanian and international applicants from countries in which the official language is not English are required to submit official evidence of English language proficiency.
Thesis topics are developed individually by the student in consultation with the department advisor. To prepare for their thesis research and writing, students must complete a course that offers instruction in research methods and academic writing. Thesis committees consist of three members, usually faculty members of the Department of Civil Engineering at Epoka University. Students can also invite an outside reader to partake in the thesis committee,.
