I. General introduction of the discipline and the research fields
Civil Engineering is the general designation of the science and technology for the construction of various kinds of engineering facilities. It refers not only to the objects of engineering construction, namely all kinds of engineering facilities built under the ground, on the ground or in water, but also to the materials and equipment as well as the professional techniques among survey, design, construction, management, maintenance and repair, etc. Along with the development and evolution of human society, Civil Engineering is constantly being added new intensions, among which both the updating of materials and the development of Mechanics theory have played a great role in promoting its development. From ancient times human beings excavating to live and using wood to built bridge, to the modern high-rise buildings, bridge and tunnels, Civil Engineering has greatly improved the quality of our life and production, and plays an important part in the national economy and social development.
The Civil Engineering discipline of Jiangsu University has excellent teaching and research facilities. We have three undergraduate majors including Civil Engineering, Construction Environment and Equipment Engineering, Engineering Management. We have several relevant laboratories and institutes, which include one ministry-level key lab - Mechanical Structure Damage Detection & Assessment Laboratory, a Research Center of Jiangsu Province for Mechanical and Engineering Structural Damage Diagnosis and Management of Engineering Technology, an Experimental Mechanics Demonstration Center of Jiangsu Province, an Experimental Civil Engineering Cultivate Demonstration Center of Jiangsu Province, a Testing Technology Institute of Civil Engineering which offers technique services for society, Institute of Mechanics Engineering and Institute of Civil Engineering. There are 5 sub-labs in Civil Engineering Cultivate Demonstration Center experimental divisions, including structure, material, geotechnical, surveying and virtual simulation. On July of 2016, The Civil Engineering specialty in Jiangsu University obtained the accreditation of Civil Engineering by the National Board of CE Accreditation (NBCEA) in the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MoHURD) of China.
Civil Engineering discipline at Jiangsu university has increasingly influence in China with its own features. Now the Civil Engineering discipline has been qualified as the first-level discipline to confer master’s degree of Civil Engineering for domestic students. Four sub-disciplines, namely "Structural engineering", "Disaster prevention and mitigation engineering and protection engineering", "Geotechnical engineering" and "Heat and gas supply and ventilation and air conditioning engineering".

III. Study duration and the way to cultivate
1.Study period
The study period of full-time academic graduate students in Civil Engineering is generally 3 years (graduate in advance is not allowed), but not more than 5 years.
2.Training approach
2.1 Training of graduate students in the discipline of Civil Engineering is carried out by tutor-responsible system. Implementation of the supervision team under the lead of tutors is encouraged to guide the whole process of graduate students training. Tutors (supervision teams) are not only responsible for developing postgraduate training programs, guiding scientific research, professional practice and dissertations, but also guiding, demonstrating and supervising graduate students' ideological and moral qualities. After having applied for and approved by the overseas education college, students will be arranged a tutor/supervisor by the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Mechanics. A individual learning plan for graduate student is formulated by supervisor according to the training plan.
2.2 The dissertation proposal defense for academic graduate student in Civil Engineering is organized by the advisory committee. The committee panel containing at least 5 qualified committee members with one who acts as the chair. The graduate student’s supervisor and co-advisors in the supervision team should not attend the proposal defense. The scoring system should be used to assess the dissertation proposal and the proportion of disapproved proposal is not firmly required.
2.3 The time and place of the dissertation proposal will be posted online in advance. Every graduate student has at most twice opportunity to report his/her dissertation proposal in school, the time interval between two proposal meetings is not less than 3 months. The graduate student will be dropped out of school whose proposal not be passed twice. After passing the proposal, students should do their scientific research for at least 1 year to submit their master thesis for peer-review and apply for final defense thereafter.
2.4 Interim report should be submitted around 6 months after the dissertation proposal. Formalization of postgraduate training will be eliminated and process management will be strengthened.
2.5 Graduate students should be active to write academic papers and obtain certain scientific research achievements. Students should follow the requirement in the file <Academic paper requirement for graduate students in Jiangsu University> and the relevant requirements of academic degree evaluation committee in Civil Engineering. After meet all above requirements, the thesis can be submitted for peer-review.
Other issues might not be covered herein, please refer to <Some opinions on formulating and revision of graduate students training plan in Jiangsu university>.
