Design and construct
In this two year program you’ll be introduced to Computer Aided Design (CAD) and drafting techniques, surveying using state-of-the-art equipment, computer-based design systems and all aspects of project management. You’ll acquire the skills and knowledge you need for a successful career within the wide-ranging field of civil engineering.
What to expect
The program is delivered over four semesters. You can start Year 1 in either September or January. Those starting in September will complete Year 1 by the end of April. Those starting in January will complete Year 1 at the end of August. It is also possible to start in September and spread the Year 1 courses over three semesters. Year 2 for everyone starts in September and completes at the end of April. You will have the option of taking paid co-op work terms after either first year or second year.
In your first year, you'll learn the theoretical background necessary for civil engineering calculations. You will also learn skills such as AutoCAD drafting and surveying.
In second year, you will apply your background skills to civil engineering applications such as structural and municipal design, asset management, and properties of soils and materials. You will complete your program with a major design project of your own choosing.
Co-operative education and internship work term(s) provide relevant real world experience. Co-op terms are always paid and followed by an academic term.
Internships may be paid or unpaid and can take place at any time, including after the last academic term.
