The Department of Civil Engineering offers a fully accredited degree program in Civil Engineering. Graduates of the Civil Engineering program are academically qualified to register as Engineers-in-Training in engineering licensing bodies in Canada. The Civil Engineering program is designed to give students a broad knowledge of engineering principles and professional practice. The program has a strong core component that provides exposure to a range of areas in Civil Engineering, including – but not limited to – the design of building and bridges, the design of facilities and methods for treatment of water, waste water and solid waste, the design of foundations and earthworks such as dams and river bank protection, transportation planning, the design of roads and pavement, the design of hydraulic structures such as sewers, canals, and spillways, and the management of surface and ground water. In the last years of the program, there are some opportunities for specialization through selection of technical elective courses. A cooperative education option allows students to include practical work experience in their program.

Notes:

 

1) Students are required to take any course from the Faculty of Arts or Faculty of Management, at the 1000 level or above, as a complementary studies elective. However, ARTS 1110 Introduction to University may not be used for credit in the Faculty of Engineering. Students pursuing the Environmental Option must take PHIL 2750 as their complementary studies elective.

 2) Students may take one technical elective course with a significant engineering science and/or design component from another department, subject to the approval by the head (or designate) of Civil Engineering.
