|Description:||Civil engineering is a diverse, rewarding and challenging profession. Civil engineers and technologists team together to plan, design, construct and maintain road and rail transportation systems; port and airport facilities; bridges, tunnels, dams, and buildings of all types; water, gas and oil pipelines; energy-generating facilities; water, air and waste treatment plants, to name but a few of their activities in an ever expanding field of endeavour. Civil engineers are, to a great extent, the designers, builders and custodians of society's built environment as well as stewards of the natural environment.
The primary aim of BCIT's Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) in Civil Engineering degree is to academically prepare the engineering student for professional practice. The curriculum focuses on developing strong skills in engineering science and design, communications, and management. Throughout the program, the students are given many opportunities to develop their critical thinking, problem solving and creative abilities. A Diploma of Technology in Civil Engineering Technology credential is conferred after the first two years of academic study within this degree program.
