Program overview

Civil engineering gives a broad, well-rounded selection of courses to choose from. They give you a good grounding in all the different fundamentals, which is great because a lot of the times you’re going out in the world where you think you’re going to do something, and then you end up doing something that’s completely different from what you expected. Having that strong foundation is really key. Civil engineering is the field that has the greatest, most direct impact on people. If you can improve the transportation system through better mobility – which means getting more people through the system with less congestion – you’ve improved your life. Your commute is less. If you can clean up a water supply, you can improve somebody’s life outcomes.

These conditions involve enrolment in an alternative calculus stream. A minimum grade of 70% in Alberta Mathematics 30-1 (or equivalent) is the prerequisite for first-year math courses. Offer finalized on passing the Bioengineering Institute Summer course. If you are currently completing high school, you will automatically be considered for admission using the standard admission by calculating your admission average using final grade 11 grades and at least one grade 12 approved course (if both grade 11 and 12 grades are provided, the grade 12 grade will be used) from the required courses for your program choice. Admitted students must complete all 30-level (or equivalent) required courses outlined above, maintain the admission average required for admission in the application year and obtain the Alberta Grade 12 diploma (or equivalent). Applicants educated in other countries may be considered for admission on their academic merits. Those completing Canadian high school courses will always have the grades obtained in these courses used in lieu of equivalents obtained on international certificates. Detailed information is available at: International students seeking admission on the basis of documents not listed on the Admissions website should submit certificates indicating the courses studied and the grades achieved to the Admissions Office. When these certificates are in a language other than English, English translations (prepared by a certified translator) must accompany the original documents.

Career opportunities

​As a civil engineer, you’ll have global opportunities to work in areas such as biomedicine, scientific research, transportation, and more. A degree in engineering can also be used as a stepping-stone to graduate studies or a professional degree such as law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or architecture.
