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
Effective Date: September 2016
The program is delivered over four semesters, starting in September and running through to the end of April. You will have options of taking paid co-op or internship work terms but you do not have to decide until later in first year.
The program is rigorous, requiring you to do work outside of the classroom. In addition to approximately 30 hours per week of class time, you should expect to spend between 15-20 hours outside of the classroom per week.
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.
