    Course Summary

    One of the most vital aspects of the broad field of Engineering is Civil Engineering. It can be said that the very first engineers were Civil Engineers, designing, planning, managing and delivering public and private building projects and the transportation, water (and eventually gas and power) infrastructures that make cities possible. Modern Civil Engineers also work on harbours, dams, airports, water treatment and pollution control facilities, among many others.  

    Memorial University of Newfoundland’s BEng program in Civil Engineering is particularly attractive to students who want to build a career in the offshore oil and gas industry. However, it is a multidisciplinary program which allows you to specialise in many sub-fields, including transportation, environmental, water resources, geotechnical, construction and structural engineering, as well as coastal, offshore and deep ocean engineering.

     This program also delivers skills in emerging specialties such as real time condition monitoring, offshore structural safety and maintenance, environmental risk assessment and composite materials engineering.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Learning And Teaching

    Memorial University’s School of Arts and Sciences relies upon many different learning and teaching methods, depending on the subject being taught. These can include lectures and seminars, professional skills workshops and special events. Some modules may be available as distance learning or blended learning programs.

    The Civil Engineering program in particular will give you the option of several co-operative work experience terms, up to 2 years of real world experience.

    Career Possibilities

    This degree will prepare you for many different engineering careers. Some students will seek out Master’s level programs in Engineering, Construction Management or Business more generally. Others will seek immediate employment. Because you’ll have up to 2 years of co-operative learning experience on your CV before you even apply for your first role, you’ll be in a very competitive choice as a building designer, cost estimator, design engineer, environmental consultant, piping designer, project manager or project manager.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 5 year BEng degree.

    Applicants must typically have completed a secondary school program, or the international equivalent. Entry is competitive, and they should be able to show good overall grades. Most admissions will be competitive.

    All classes are taught in English unless otherwise noted, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
