Civil engineers provide and maintain all of the infrastructure that we depend on daily. They plan, design, construct, operate, manage and maintain airports, bridges, buildings, dams, highways, railways, pipeline systems, tunnels, water distribution systems and treatment facilities.
The Faculty of Engineering and Design’s Civil Engineering program in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering starts by giving students a thorough background in mathematics, chemistry, physics, thermodynamics, geology and numerical methods. In the final two years, students focus on engineering design in the areas of structural, geotechnical, transportation and municipal engineering.
The Civil Engineering program is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board, allowing graduates to meet the educational requirements for registering as a professional engineer. The program also has a first-year internship opportunity.
