Civil engineers design the infrastructure on which their communities depend, such as buildings and their foundations, bridges, canals, dams, transportation facilities, municipal sewer and water networks, and wastewater and solid waste treatment systems.
Civil engineering students at the University of Ottawa can take advantage of world-class teaching laboratories, multimedia classrooms and outstanding computer facilities. Students develop expertise in computer applications, field and laboratory testing, and project management, and they are well-equipped to serve their communities upon graduation.
This program is offered in English and in French.
French courses are available in first year and almost all of second year. Most third and fourth year courses are offered in English only.
To follow this option, students must complete the courses required for the BASc in Civil Engineering with the exception of the fourth-year courses which are replaced by the following courses.
Co-operative education is available with this program.
