Bachelor of Applied Science in Civil Engineering (For students who entered the program Fall 2008 to present)

Civil engineering comprises the conception, design, operation, and maintenance of buildings, railroads, waterways, bridges, harbours, tunnels, water supply and purification systems, sewage collection and treatment facilities, hydraulic structures, and waterpower developments. The Civil Engineering curriculum provides a diversity of applied course work and aids the student in selecting a major field of endeavour as well as a thorough background in the basic sciences and a broad understanding of the social sciences and humanities.

The Civil Engineering program provides modern and comprehensive laboratory facilities in the following fields: Strength of Materials, Soil Mechanics, Hydraulics, Structures, Concrete, Sanitary Engineering, and Surveying. The Canadian Society for Civil Engineering has an active student section on campus.

Note: The baccalaureate degree program in Civil Engineering is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers.

Bachelor of Applied Science in Environmental Engineering (For students who entered the program Fall 2008 to present)

The program in Environmental Engineering is built upon a broad base of science and mathematics combined with an emphasis on engineering principles and design.

The rapid growth of industrial activities has produced many new problems related to environmental protection, resource conservation, and safety. The public has been aware of the risks involved in handling a wide range of hazardous and toxic materials by major incidents which have occurred in spite of improved design methods and operating techniques to overcome potential problems. Consequently, legislation is being formulated and enacted to control the release of toxic chemicals and pollutants into our environment. Environmental engineers are trained not only to solve problems of immediate concern, but also to develop practices and processes to systematically avoid their occurrence.

Environmental engineers have qualifications which will permit them to focus upon the transport, transformation and removal of contaminants in air, water, and soil, as well as the broader aspects of environmental planning and impact assessment.

Note: The baccalaureate degree program in Environmental Engineering is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers. With appropriate selection of electives, students would be qualified to apply to medical schools.

A candidate for the Honours Certificate in Environmental Engineering shall hold the degree of (i) Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.); (ii) a four-year B.Sc. (or BCS) degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Earth Sciences or related Science fields. The program can be also taken concurrently by 3rd year and 4rth year students at the University of Windsor in Engineering and Science Fields.

Requirements

Total courses: Eight (8) courses [minimum of 6 upper year courses (Years 3 and 4), and up to 8 if the student has all the pre-requisite, or their equivalent, courses.

(a) eight (8) undergraduate courses, at the 300 or 400-level, as listed in the program requirements for the BASc in Environmental Engineering. Students with an undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree may take a minimum of two courses at the 200-level.

NOTES:
The present pre-requisite requirements for 3rd and 4th year courses must be respected. All selected courses should not be from courses, subjects or topics that were part of the applicant’s undergraduate studies.

If students from another program are missing pre-requisites courses critical for successful completion of the certificate, they are to choose from appropriate 2nd year courses. A maximum of 2 courses from the pre-requisite courses will count towards the certificate, although more may be necessary depending on the student’s background.

To qualify for the certificate, students will be required to successfully complete all 8 courses at the University of Windsor. No transfer credit will be considered for this certificate.
