Technical Electives

Civil Engineering students are required to take five technical elective courses. Please note that technical elective courses offered vary from year to year and may have limited enrolment. Courses offered in the current year are listed on the online timetables on the Department website. Students are encouraged to discuss their program with members of the academic staff to obtain advice regarding the best choice of electives for their needs.

Student pursing the Environmental Option must choose from the Environmental Technical Elective list.
