Civil Engineering 

Civil Engineering is focused on designing the massive infrastructure that meets our society’s needs: •

highways, bridges, buildings, pipe networks, railways, water treatment plants, airports, flood protection, dams, pipelines, stadiums…

• anything designed to withstand the forces of nature (wind, snow, water, seismic forces, gravity, vibration) will probably require the expertise of a Civil Engineer


Civil Engineering • in Civil Engineering, you can choose to specialize in areas such as: • transportation • structures and materials • construction and project management • water resources – hydraulics,

– eco-hydraulics, – hydrology, – storm water management, etc. • geotechnical design

• environmental engineering (water quality, waste water, groundwater remediation, etc.)

Environmental Engineering: A Program in Demand! 

“In the 21st century, one of the largest needs will be environmental engineering." (Globe and Mail)

20 Fastest-growing Professional Jobs: >20% increase between 2002 and 2012: (Fortune 75, 2005)

“an increasingly health-conscious public is eager to find environmental engineers that can prevent problems rather than simply control those that already exist.”


Environmental Engineering 

In Summary Whatever your chosen field of study, your education •

begins with a year of basic math and science

beginning in second year, varies with each program (civil, enviro and geo)

involves mechanics, analysis and design at the appropriate time in your engineering education

is flexible enough to allow you to specialize in a particular area of interest (technical electives)

encourages you to become well rounded engineers (complementary studies electives)

requires a minimum of 8 terms (and 6 work terms)…~5 years of study

and finally, please realize that 1A is about •

establishing a knowledge base of math and science

developing a work ethic (efficient time management skills, etc.), and

is NOT engineering (not yet)!!
