Information for New Students

Welcome to the Civil Engineering Department!

We hope that you will find your time with us challenging and enjoyable. The following information will help you plan your fall and winter timetable, understand how to register for classes using Aurora, and hopefully answer other questions about being a student at the University of Manitoba.

Step 1: View the Registration Procedure and the Civil Engineering Model Program. The model program lists all courses required for your Civil Engineering degree, and includes prerequisite and/or co-requisite course requirements:

Step 2: Make a fall and winter timetable using the four or five year model and the timetables below. Most students follow the five year model. Please try and follow the model program closely, 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 (job, sports, etc).

Step 3: Check your initial registration access time on your Aurora account on or after July 10, 2020. All Engineering students begin registering on or after July 23, 2020: 

  • Login, then click on the Enrolment & Academic Records tab, then click on Registration & Exams, then click on Registration Time & Status
  • Make sure to check your time and status early to clear any potential holds that may exist on your account that prevent registration

Step 4: Register for fall AND winter courses on your registration access day using Aurora Student. If you encounter any problems, contact us immediately by email at

Step 5: Pay your fall term tuition before the deadline and check your booklist:

Step 6: Other important information for first time students:

Step 7: If you run into any problems at all with timetabling, registration, or anything else, please contact the Undergraduate Student Advisor, Pat Fedirchuk who would be happy to assist you. Students are always welcome to stop the Civil Engineering office with any questions or concerns.
