Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering covers the broad areas of environmental, geotechnical, hydrotechnical, structural, materials, and transportation engineering. The program is designed in such a way that students are exposed to basic civil engineering science during the second and third years of the program. During this time, the students are required to take courses that introduce the fundamental concepts in all of the program areas. In the final year, students have the opportunity to select electives that allow some degree of specialization. However, students are strongly encouraged to select electives that will provide them with a broad-based technical background. Project/design courses are provided in two of the three upper years. These courses are designed to give students experience in solving open-ended problems and in working in partnership with industry.

All undergraduate students within the College of Engineering are required to complete a first-year common core. Students that secure admission to a specific upper-year discipline must follow the program of study that was in place at the time of their admission to an upper-year academic discipline, recognizing that course and program changes may result in modification to the original program of study. It is recommended that students contact the Engineering Student Centre to confirm their program of study on a regular basis.

Please consult an Academic Advisor for assistance in choosing electives.
