Program Information

School:University of Calgary
Faculty:Schulich School of Engineering
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study:Civil Engineering, General
Description:Civil engineering is a very broad discipline involving the design, conception, construction, operation, maintenance, and management of many structures and systems vital to the public. These include transit systems, highways, railways, bridges, buildings, airports, offshore structures, docks, canals, irrigation, dams, and water supply and sanitation systems. More recently, the discipline has also focused upon structural biomechanics as well as a variety of environmental challenges affecting existing infrastructure and industries. Civil engineering students at the Schulich School of Engineering are exposed to the basics of the discipline before specialization. Courses in materials science, structures, water resource engineering, project management, geotechnical engineering, transportation planning, and solid mechanics are compulsory in the first 18 months of the civil engineering program. Calgary is known as the "engineering capital of Canada" and the Schulich internship is the largest of its kind in the country. Students have the option of making this a five year program by participating in a 12 - 16 month internship after the third year to make contacts, get experience, and offset the costs of education. International placements expand horizons even further.
