DescriptionCivil Engineers are trained to do more than design structures. In fact, this is only a small portion of their capabilities. The work of Civil Engineers can impact broad segments of society. For example, as a Civil Engineer, you may be in management, you may design buildings and bridges, or you may work to preserve the environment by striving to balance the physical needs of society with nature. The scope of the challenge is limited only by you. You may be asked to design a small irrigation system or redirect a river that threatens to devastate a city. Or you may become involved in soil mechanics --- how soil carriers the weight of a building. Perhaps you will work in the automotive industry analyzing the frames of new cars. Or you may analyze traffic delay on streets, design road geometry and forecast future travel demand. The work of Civil Engineers pervades our daily lives. In fact, if you look around you, you will probably find more than a few objects on which the work of a Civil Engineer was integral.

A Civil Engineering degree will provide you with access to the engineering profession in Canada and abroad. The program is flexible and provides a great variety of career opportunities. Multidisciplinary solutions require broadly educated engineers with communication, management, and teamwork skills. We make these a priority in Civil Engineering at the University of Windsor.
