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.
Civil Engineering is an ideal choice if you're interested in structures, fluid mechanics, hydraulics, hydrology, and geotechnical engineering.  Couses in engineering mathematics, structural analysis, hydraulics, hydrology design, soil mechanics, and management provide the broad-based education needed in today's market place.

Minimum Admission Average: 74%

Secondary Average: 74%* 

Students in all programs take a common first year.

ENG4U, MHF4U, SCH4U and SPH4U required. MCV4U is strongly recommended.

Engineering second average is the average of all math and science courses except biology.
