Are you interested in designing skyscrapers? Or do you wonder what goes into the maintenance of dams, roads, bridges or canals? Do you pass by everyday on your daily jog and can't help but try to figure out how such a building was constructed? Then you might want to consider going to university to study civil engineering. On this section of the site you will find information about civil engineering programs at various universities across the country and hopefully the information provided will lead you on the path of choosing a school that will give you a great education.

The department of civil engineering at the University of British Columbia for example, offers students the opportunity to study at one of the strongest civil engineering departments in the country. And it also gives you the ability to live in one of the most vibrant and multicultural cities in Canada. A bachelor of applied science generally takes four years to complete and after that you can either graduate or continue your studies in their graduate program. A typical first year engineering course load consists of math, applied science, physics, english and chemistry classes, with a few electives thrown in. Once you've completed your first year, you will be taking more advanced classes in your chosen specialized field of civil engineering. If you decide to not take the graduate program, some of the classes you will be taking in the years before graduation cover a wide range of subjects such as project based learning in civil engineering materials, steel and timber design, environmental hydraulics, matrix structural analysis and dynamics, and design of concrete structures. These classes represent only a small percentage of the courses offered at the University of British Columbia.

McMaster University offers you a learning experience that will prepare you for the real world so you are ready and able to provide society with the skills needed to help build and design roads, school, railroads, homes that might be sold in the Ajax real estate market or water systems. Just like most other universities, at McMaster you will first be enrolled in a first year program that gives you basic information about the fundamentals and principles that are important to all engineering disciplines. Once you've completed your first year, you will be able to enter second year of studies focused on your chosen field of civil engineering that will lead you on your way to graduating after four years and earning your undergraduate degree, unless you decide to stay and pursue a graduate degree. As you progress in your studies over the years, you will have a wide range of advanced classes to choose from such as principles of geological and geoenvironmental engineering, reinforced concrete design, and computer applications in civil engineering. At McMaster, you can also take part in cooperative programs that will give you a greater understanding of the type of work you will be doing once you graduate.

Etobicoke real estate is home to some of the finest structurally built properties in North York and if you've ever wanted to learn how some of the buildings were made, studying civil engineering at the University of Waterloo is a step in the right direction. Their department of civil and environmental engineering is currently home to the largest civil engineering program in Canada. Your first year will be focused more on math and science so you can build a solid foundation for your future studies. In the second year of your studies, you will be building on the basic math principles you learned as you're exposed to the wonderful world of engineering mechanics. As you reach your final year, your focus will be shifted to engineering design and management. Because you also have the ability to choose from a diverse field of electives, you will have the freedom to specialize in any civil engineering disciplines such as waste water treatment, urban storm water management, transportation systems and many more. While studying at Waterloo, you will also be part of a cooperative program in which you will get two years of paid work experience. That experience will go a long way in determining which specialized field you would like to work in once you graduate.

If you truly feel that civil engineering is the path you want to take with your life, now is the perfect time to enroll at one of the universities mentioned on this site. Civil engineering is one of the oldest disciplines going and there is currently a huge demand for civil engineers. There's no time like the present to go out and get your degree so you can start getting to work on building the world's next great wonder. What are you waiting for? Go out and find a buyer for that home you have on the market and use the money to invest in your future. Eventually you'll make enough money to buy an even bigger house.
