Why study Civil Engineering? (Co-operative)
Civil Engineers play a key role in our cities and our society, planning, building, and maintaining infrastructure while addressing environmental concerns and the challenges of providing a sustainable future.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Alberta is among the best in Canada, with a long-standing tradition of excellence and many distinguished alumni. With our proximity to Alberta's booming construction economy and connections to industry, we are able to offer you unmatched research and career opportunities.
This degree can be taken as a Co-op (co-operative education) program. Through the Co-op program, you will have the opportunity to complete paid, supervised work terms throughout your degree. Co-op programs are great way to challenge yourself, gain relevant work experience, and make connections to industry before you graduate!
Most co-op programs include five work terms lasting four months each, in addition to the usual eight terms (four years) of full-time study. Therefore, co-op programs require five years to complete.
As part of this program, you can choose to take an Environmental Engineering Option.
