Civil Engineering

Dealing with the constructions that most people come in contact with on a daily basis, Civil Engineering courses provide the knowledge and skills necessary to design, construct and maintain roads, bridges, canals, dams and buildings. Civil Engineering courses focus on one or several sub-disciplines of civil engineering, including structural, materials, water resources, coastal, geotechnical, transportation, municipal or urban engineering. Students of Civil Engineering courses will learn how to collaborate with other professionals in relevant sectors, like architects, designers, public servants, corporate executives, project managers and others.

For individuals with previous experience or coursework in related fields, Civil Engineering courses can add specialized knowledge to an already successful work portfolio. Students just starting out on their academic path can also benefit from Civil Engineering courses. Knowledge acquired in Civil Engineering courses can often complement lessons learned in other disciplines, like sociology, architecture, design, materials science, anthropology, public management or others.
