Why study Civil Engineering?

Protect water resources. Design buildings, bridges and tunnels. Improve transportation and traffic flow. As a civil engineer, your expertise in urban and environmental planning lets you guide municipalities to create the structures and systems that have a positive impact on everyday community life.

Choose to specialize in Civil Infrastructure, Environmental or Construction Engineering and Management. In our state-of-the-art labs designed for water management, soil mechanics or surveying, you will get practical experience with the tools and equipment you will use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also:

  • Plan and execute the construction of complex facilities such as buildings, bridges, dams and tunnels
  • Develop strategies to manage water resources, transportation and waste disposal
  • Conduct environmental impact assessments and assist urban planners

Our program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board and you’ll graduate eligible to become a registered professional engineer.
