Be a hands-on builder help shape the world by analyzing, planning, designing, constructing and maintaining “built” environments for safe, healthy and sustainable living on this Civil Engineering program from University of British Columbia.


Students acquire a broad understanding of engineering principles within Applied Sciences (APSC) before selecting one of four Engineering (ENGR) programs, including Civil Engineering.

All lead to a UBC Bachelor of Applied Science degree. Course content is amplified through lectures, hands-on laboratory work in cutting-edge facilities, team-based projects and early design experience. You will also be immersed in active industry and community involvement.


University of British Columbia’s Civil Engineering students are solidly schooled from the ground up—from soil mechanics and foundation engineering, to the design of structures, roads and transportation networks, river and flood management systems, construction management and law, environmental engineering (water and wastewater networks and treatment plants, air pollution, and waste management), and municipal engineering.
