Civil Engineering (optional Co-op)

Bachelor of Applied Science in Civil Engineering

As a civil engineer, you will play a critical role in designing, upgrading, and maintaining infrastructure. Civil engineering is one of the broadest areas of engineering practice, and includes multiple fields of practice, such as structural analysis and design, roadways and smart transportation innovations, bridges and superstructures, municipal works, geotechnical applications, hydraulics and waterways, and much more.

Program Description

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers two separate degree programs: Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering. Both programs are similar in many respects, but each offers its own unique strengths.

If you choose to specialize in civil engineering, after first year, you will take such courses as structural analysis, soil mechanics, the mechanics of deformable bodies, fluid mechanics, construction management, transportation, as well as how to design structures composed from wood, concrete and steel. These will serve as a broad base to establish a career in the many different areas related to civil engineering.
