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.
