# Masters of Civil Engineering

Hello good people of PF

I'm going into my third year of undergrad civil engineering in university. So far my GPA is only 2.5/4 I have been lazy the past 2 years but I know i am capable of high marks..

After undergrad, Im planning to get a Masters degree in the same field. I havent done much research but I am leaning towards attending McGill (Montreal). I checked their website and it said the minimum GPA required is 3.2 in your last 2 years. I`m not sure but this is probably very different from what is needed to actually get accepted with grants..

Right now I am trying to get a picture of what I need to do to get accepted by McGill. If anyone here knows anything or has ANY advice please reply

thanks.

That is fine, but your focus is in what? Civil Engineering is a broad area.

either transportation or infrastructure

Interesting,

I got my Master in Transportation. If you have any questions let me know.

ok I haven't done much research, but from what I heard from upper year students, transportation is much easier to study and there's more money in that field. This is in Canada btw. Does your experience reflect this?

The decision will probably be easier to make after I finish my third year courses..

Easier? Money in this field?

Y'know I recommend choosing a path because you enjoy it. Easy and Money might not be the best way.

i agree with you
however, i don't know which one I will enjoy more...will decide after third year
