Civil Engineering addresses the interaction of people with the built and natural environment. Civil engineers design and construct many facilities that are critical to our society and use established theories, techniques, and emerging technologies to understand and solve complex problems.
Our innovative research is relevant to Canadian communities.
Our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to the quality of our teaching.
Sustainability extends into many facets of our curriculum and research programs.
We produce leaders through high quality education, community engagement and leading edge training.
What I love about my stream is how real it is. Civil Engineering students take courses on materials like steel and concrete which are used to construct buildings, bridges, hydro dams, highways, sewer systems, and more. Moreover, we look at the environmental impacts civilization has on our world both locally and globally.
Example career paths:
- Design and construction of buildings and infrastructure systems
- Earthquake engineering
- Environmental and water resources engineering
- Techniques to increase the performance of concrete, masonry and steel structures; mitigation of damage due to extreme load situations
- Sensing and automation for heavy construction; development of innovative disruptive and intelligent transportation systems.
- Watershed planning and storm water management; groundwater cleanup; energy harvesting from wastewater
- Mitigation of damage due to earthquake, blast and other extreme load situations
- Watershed planning and stormwater management
- Energy harvesting from wastewater
