Civil Engineering involves the planning and construction of complex physical facilities such as buildings, bridges, dams, and tunnels, and the engineering aspects of water resources, waste disposal, transportation, soil mechanics, urban planning, and environmental impact assessment.

Civil engineering work often starts at the computer, sorting data and gathering statistics. After the summer session of the first year of study, students can offer the skill of surveying as they develop and expand their knowledge and work-related skills. By the time co-op students are into their final project, they are helping the project along in a way that most firms expect from their qualified engineers. Assigned tasks include producing formal project proposals and reports, specifications and plans. Students should be able to apply acquired analytical skills in engineering analysis when appropriate.
