Civil Engineering Model Programs

These models lists all courses required for a Civil Engineering degree, which term courses are offered, and the pre/corequisites.

The model program that is applicable to a student is determined by the year they were admitted into Civil Engineering. Curriculum changes in subsequent years may not affect a student’s model program.

Civil Engineering Timetable

The Civil Engineering timetable lists 2nd, 3rd and 4th year courses being offered, including prerequisites and instructors. Please check back frequently for updates and refer to Aurora for more information.

Use the model program and the Civil timetable to plan your schedule. Please try and follow the model program as closely as possible as timetables and course offerings are based on these models, but decide how many courses you want to take per term based on your personal schedule (part-time job, sports, outside commitments).

Other information

Indigenous Knowledge course

Starting Fall 2021, Civil students are required to take at least one of the courses from the list of Indigenous Knowledge courses. ENG 4100* may be used to meet this requirement when the course content satisfies the requirement for the Indigenous Knowledge course.

Students pursuing the Environmental Option must take PHIL 2750. 

Indigenous Knowledge Course List - Prerequisites must be met for all courses.

ENG 4100* Contemporary Topics in Eng. Practice (4) (see note above)
INDG 1200 Indigenous Peoples in Canada (6)
INDG 1220 Indigenous Peoples in Canada Part 1 (3)
INDG 1240 Indigenous Peoples in Canada Part 2 (3)
INDG 2012/
HIST 2010
Indigenous History in Canada (6)
INDG 2020/
HIST 2020
The Métis in Canada (3)
POLS 2802 Introduction to Indigenous Politics (3)
POLS 3870 Politics of Indigenous-Settler Relations (3)

NOTE: INDG subject code was revised from NATV as of Fall 2022. Previous NATV courses on the approved list will be accepted for this requirement. 

Civil Engineering Technical Electives and Streams

Civil Engineering students are required to take a minimum of 5 technical electives. Students interested in pursuing more focused studies may choose to complete a Stream. Specific technical elective courses are required if a student wishes to pursue a Stream.

To learn more about the Technical Electives and Streams offered for Civil Engineering, visit the Technical Electives & Streams page.

Complementary Studies Elective (for students admitted prior to Fall 2021)

Complementary studies electives are required to give the civil engineering student exposure to topics outside of the fields of science and engineering. Any course at the 1000 level or above from the Faculties of Arts or Management can be used as a complementary elective (except for ARTS 1100 - Introduction to University). 

Civil Engineering students planning to complete the Environmental Option must take PHIL 2750 - Ethics and the Environment (3) as one complementary elective course.

Beginning in Fall 2021, Civil Engineering has introduced an Indigenous Knowledge Course requirement for new students in the program.  Students admitted prior to Fall 2021 require a complementary studies elective as part of their program. Students who have not yet completed their complementary studies elective are encouraged to consider choosing a course from the new Indigenous Knowledge Course list.
