BCIT offers a 4-year Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) in Civil Engineering Degree. A Diploma credential is available within the B.Eng. degree program after successfully completing the first two years of study. The Civil Technologist is a vital member of the engineering team and contributes to the planning, design and construction of municipal works, residential development, industrial and commercial buildings, highways, environmental protection work and other types of projects.
Presentation of the course material, over the first two years of the degree program is primarily delivered at a foundational level with engineering fundamentals stressed and reinforced across the curriculum. An abundance of learning opportunities is provided to practically apply these fundamentals to the solution of real-world design scenarios. Throughout, opportunities are presented to students to strengthen their graphical, written, and oral communication skills. A significant amount of time in the program is directly related to hands-on-training in material testing, surveying, manual and computer-aided drafting, and instruction in the use of engineering software tools. Successful completion of the first two years of the program allows students to exit with a nationally accredited Diploma in Civil Engineering Technology.
Following successful completion of the first two years of the B.Eng. program the student may choose to enter the workforce with a diploma and advance a career as a Civil Technologist or choose to continue academic studies towards becoming a Civil Engineer. These further academic studies are possible for qualified students within the B.Eng. in Civil Engineering program at BCIT, or elsewhere in other Civil Engineering programs across Canada..
