You may also choose four technical electives, including topics such as watershed processes, hazardous waste, transportation systems, engineering management and the environment, environmental systems, geotechnical engineering, or structural dynamics.

What is Civil Engineering?

What choices do I have in Civil Engineering?
Today Civil Engineering comprises a number of disciplines that are fast expanding to incorporate the rapid increase technological tools.  They include:

  • Structural Engineering (the analysis and design of buildings, bridges, dams, etc.);
  • Geotechnical Engineering (the analysis and design of foundations, dam, embankments, tunnels, roadways, etc.);
  • Environmental Engineering (waste water and solid waste management, recycling, composting, landfills, air pollution control, design of municipal water supply, etc.);
  • Transportation Engineering (involves planning and design of streets, roads, highways, railways, airports, design of pavements, etc.);
  • Hydraulic and Water Resources Engineering (the design of water distribution, wastewater and storm water sewar systems, the design of hydraulic structures such as reservoirs, floodways, spillways, etc.);
  • Materials (characterization of materials used in the construction of civil proects);
  • Construction Management (includes the planning, scheduling and organizing of materials and equipment to complete a construction project);
  • Applied Mechanics (deals with the behaviour of structures and masterials under static and dynamic loads).

Is there a practical or work experience component?

The Mechanical Engineering programme at the University of Manitoba is ranked 15th in North America and 5th in Canada.

The Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board has fully accredited the engineering program at the University of Manitoba

The Civil Engineering program integrates design into many courses. Electives strongly focus on design. An optional co-op education program is available to incorporate valuable work experience into the program. The co-op program involves the addition of three to four work terms, totaling twelve to sixteen months of paid work experience.

What is the advantage of studying Civil Engineering over other areas like environmental science?
In addition to basic sciences, the Civil Engineering program provides course work in design and implementation, and focuses on practical applications. Civil engineers not only assess, test and analyze to determine environmental problems; they also plan, design and build physical solutions. The impact of their work and the benefits to society are visible worldwide. In addition, Civil Engineering is a recognized professional program, and graduates therefore tend to make more money upon graduation.

What types of jobs do civil engineers do?
Civil engineers work for consultants, government agencies, construction firms, and oil and gas companies, among others. There are opportunities for international development and community work, and civil engineers find long‑term employment in stable industries at the forefront of innovative applications of advanced technology.

Why should I take Civil Engineering at the University of Manitoba?Manitoba logo

The Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board has fully accredited the engineering program at the University of Manitoba, and this accreditation is recognized as equivalent in seven countries outside Canada.

The Civil Engineering program at the University of Manitoba is the oldest engineering program in Western Canada.
The undergraduate program is a fully accredited program and all graduates from the program are eligible to ecome professional engineers in Canada.
University of Manitoba students have access to state-of-the-art facilities, including an impressive hydraulics laboratory used for scale modeling of major water-related infrastructure, and the W.R. McQuade Structures Laboratory used for large scale testing of civil structures.   The U of M is the home of the National Centre of Excellence on Intelligent Sensing for Innovative Structures (ISIS Canada).
Many employers throughout Canada say the University of Manitoba is one of the top schools from which to hire future engineers. University of Manitoba students begin taking design courses in first year and this exposure to design continues through to the Capstone Design courses in the graduating year. The U of M is the only Canadian university to have an NSERC Chair in Design Engineering as an Associate Dean.
The Faculty includes more than ten Canada Research and Industrial Chairs, with research focussed in five key areas: New Materials and Manufacturing Technologies, Biomedical Engineering, Energy Systems, Information Technology and Communications, and Sustainable Prairie and Northern Communities.

In addition to the academic program there are also many student groups that students can join to learn more aout certain areas of Civil Engineering.  They include the Institute of Transportation Engineers, Canadian Society for Civil Engineers, Engineers Without Borders and the Concrete Tobaggan group.  Students participate, and perform well in several technical society competitions, and have been successful in national scholarship and other competitions.

What about internships and co‑op opportunities at the University of Manitoba?
Real‑world experiences can be your key to a full‑time job. The University of Manitoba offers some of the best design programs of any engineering school in Canada, with industry‑generated real‑life team‑based projects. All programs also offer opportunities for co‑op or internship job placements, which allow the student paid work experience, with recognition on their diploma. This may count as part of the work experience requirement for professional licensure.

Becoming a professional.

To practice engineering as a professional, you’ll need to earn a license. The licensing process requires that you graduate from an accredited four‑year engineering program and that you sit for an exam. At the University of Manitoba, all engineering programs are accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board, and this accreditation is recognized in seven other countries.

APEGM

The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of the Province of Manitoba (APEGM) was established by an act of legislation to regulate the profession of engineering in Manitoba on March 27, 1920. In 1998 the association’s mandate was expanded by the Manitoba Legislature to include the regulation of professional geoscientists in Manitoba.

APEGM’s role is to govern and regulate the practice of professional engineering and professional geoscience in Manitoba, and to ensure that everyone who is practicing engineering is qualified to do so. In order to practice professional engineering and call yourself an engineer in Manitoba, you must be registered with APEGM.

The Faculty of Engineering has partnered with APEGM to facilitate upgrading for individuals who are Professional Engineers in

other countries that want to be qualified to practice in Manitoba. Individuals wishing to avail themselves of this opportunity should first contact APEGM to discuss particular requirements.

IEEQ

The Internationally-Educated Engineers Qualifications (IEEQ) Program is a program of university engineering courses, co-op work experience, cultural orientation, language and communication support, and professional networking. Most people will be able to complete the program in 12 months, although the option to complete the program over 24 months also exists. Through the IEEQ Program, internationally-educated engineers are considered ’academically qualified’ by APEGM, as part of the process of achieving a P.Eng. licence in Manitoba.

The IEEQ Program is designed for Internationally-educated engineers as a pathway to be considered academically qualified by the Association of Professional Engineers & Geoscientists of Manitoba (APEGM), as part of the process toward a P.Eng. license in Manitoba. Internationally-educated engineers who take the IEEQ Program are men and women who already hold an engineering degree from outside of Canada, who generally have extensive engineering work experience from outside of Canada, who have

recently immigrated to Canada, and who wish to continue their engineering career and seek professional licensure with APEGM in Manitoba.

There are two main requirements to become registered as a P.Eng. in Manitoba: academic qualification and acceptable engineering work experience. Previously, the only way for internationally-educated engineers to achieve academic qualification was to write Confirmatory Examinations assigned by APEGM. The IEEQ Program is an alternative to the Confirmatory Exam process.

The IEEQ Program includes technical courses and co-op work experience, augmented by a consistent emphasis on cultural orientation, English communication development, and professional networking. Students can choose to complete the program over one or two years. The IEEQ Program is a time-effective alternative to Confirmatory Examinations, immersion in the English technical vocabulary and Canadian codes & standards of the discipline, intensive cultural orientation, Canadian engineering work experience, and introductions to a local engineering network of fellow students, professors, co-op employers and colleagues.
