Civil Engineering

Fall 2020 Delivery Mode: BLENDED

  • This program will be delivered for the fall semester as a combination of online and on-campus learning.
  • Faculty will notify students of when their attendance on campus will be required.
  • We are putting measures in place for your safety and well-being, ensuring that all safety protocols are addressed. Please see BCIT COVID-19 Return to Operations for details on the mandatory procedures that have been implemented.
  • Your education is our priority and we will continue to deliver the applied instruction, collaborative experience, and industry connections that you expect from BCIT.

Civil engineering is a diverse, rewarding and challenging profession. Civil engineers and technologists team together to plan, design, construct and maintain road and rail transportation systems, port and airport facilities, bridges, tunnels, dams, and buildings of all types; water, gas and oil pipelines; energy-generating facilities, water, air and waste treatment plants, to name but a few of their activities in an ever-expanding field of endeavour. Civil engineers are, to a great extent, the designers, builders and custodians of society's built environment as well as stewards of the natural environment.

The primary aim of BCIT's Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) in Civil Engineering degree is to academically prepare engineering students for professional practice. The curriculum focuses on developing strong skills in engineering science and design, communications, and management and presents many opportunities to develop your critical thinking, problem solving and creative abilities. A Diploma in Civil Engineering credential is conferred after the first two years of academic study and, if you meet the continuation requirements, a Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering is conferred upon successful completion of academic year four.

The Program

The BEng in Civil Engineering is composed of four years of full-time academic study.

The first two years of the degree program present a broad, practical overview of the field of civil engineering, with engineering fundamentals stressed and reinforced across the curriculum. You will receive an abundance of learning opportunities to apply these fundamentals to the solution of real-world design scenarios that would be encountered by both technologists and engineers. Throughout the program, we will present opportunities to strengthen your graphical, written, and oral communication skills. You will spend a significant amount of time on hands-on training in material testing, surveying, manual and computer-aided drafting, and receive instruction in the use of engineering software tools. You will receive a Diploma in Civil Engineering credential upon successful completion of the first two years of academic study within this degree program.

If you meet the continuation requirements, you may continue into the final two years of the degree program which are academically rigorous. We will thoroughly investigate the theoretical foundations of civil engineering science and design topics. At the same time, you will apply the practical civil engineering knowledge you have gained in course assignments and project work. You will also be challenged to view the engineer's role from an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspective. You will learn about the role of the engineer in project and construction management and enrich your educational experience with complementary studies courses relating to social sciences and the humanities. To further develop your engineering skills for professional practice, you will work with classmates to complete a team-based capstone design project.

Program Details

As a full-time student, you'll learn by being immersed into a structured, highly demanding environment. Your courses will be delivered using lectures, labs, and tutorials. We'll teach you theory in combination with its practical application, simulating an engineering office environment where possible. We'll set a high standard and expect you to rise to meet it. Here are the conditions you'll learn under...

  • The Civil Engineering program is a four-year engineering program with an optional exit with a diploma after successful completion of academic year 2. Eligible students may continue into academic years 3 and 4 which will lead to a Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering.
  • The first two years run from the beginning of September to the end of May and each include a 15 week term from September through December and a 20 week term from January to the end of May.
  • The final two academic years each consist of two 15 week terms; one from September to December and another from January to the end of April.
  • The program is not organized on a semester intake system. The program course matrix is highly interrelated and structured, and all students take the same courses for the first three terms (Levels 1 to 3). If you don't pass all courses in the first four terms, an extra academic year is almost always required to make up missed courses and successfully exit the program with a Diploma in Civil Engineering.
  • A typical term requires that you attend 30 hours per week of classroom, laboratory, and tutorial time. The majority of students put in at least another 15 to 25 hours per week studying and working on assignments and projects. Really successful students are more likely to put in an additional 30 to 40 hours per week.
  • You'll take either 8 or 9 separate courses each term for the first two years, and then we'll reduce it to 6 or 7 courses for the final two years. (Obviously, you'll quickly develop time-management skills as a survival mechanism.)
  • In total, then, over the first 2 years, you'll attend some 2100 hours of classroom time, and take 32 courses prior to receiving your diploma. If you're eligible to continue into Year 3, the following two years will add on another 1100 hours of classroom time plus another 26 courses before you receive a bachelor's degree. Whew!

Program length

Four years, full-time

Upon successful completion of the first two years, students will earn a Diploma in Civil Engineering. Students who meet the continuation requirements and successfully complete a further two years of full-time study will earn a BEng in Civil Engineering.

Practical work experience requirement

All students seeking to complete the BEng in Civil Engineering must satisfy the practical work experience requirement after obtaining a diploma. You can satisfy the practical work experience requirement by completing a minimum of 700 hours of relevant work experience. At least 300 of these hours must be completed before entering Level 5 and the remaining hours must be completed before entering Level 7. The summer periods between years 2 and 3 and years 3 and 4 provide sufficient time to meet these requirements.

A continuous work period of 12 to 15 months is considered optimum because you will have the opportunity to use what you have learned and develop your skills in a real-world setting. You will also be able to clarify your academic and career goals before making elective decisions in years 3 and 4. If you wish to return to Level 5 after more than 4 months’ absence, you must apply for re-admission to the program.

What is practical work experience?

Refer to Appendix 3 of the current ASTTBC Board of Examiners Policy [PDF]. It is expected that your first 300 hours will be at Work Experience Level 1 or 2. Subsequent work experience should indicate a progression in these levels, with some tasks at Level 3 after 700 hours. You should also know that Engineers and Geoscientists British Columbia may accept up to a maximum of one year of pre-graduation experience towards the four years of engineering work experience required for registration as a Professional Engineer if it is supervised by a Canadian registered Professional Engineer and if it otherwise satisfies all of Engineers and Geoscientists BC's experience criteria.


Levels 1-4: You must obtain a final grade of at least 50% before proceeding to the next course, with the exception of the four Communications courses, one in each level, all of which have a passing grade of 65%.

Continuation GPA: To be eligible to continue into Level 5 of the degree, you must achieve a minimum 70% continuation GPA under a full-time program load. This is calculated using grades obtained in your first attempt of all courses from Levels 2, 3, and 4, excluding CIVL 4024 and CIVL 4053, but including CHEM 6020 and MATH 6010. If you complete Levels 2, 3, and 4 in a mode other than full-time, you may also be considered for continuation into Level 5 if you meet the 70% GPA requirement.

Levels 5-8: You must obtain a 55% final grade in order to pass the course.


The Civil Engineering program at BCIT leads sequentially to two credentials: a Diploma in Civil Engineering conferred after academic year two, and a Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering conferred after academic year four.

The diploma in Civil Engineering is highly regarded by employers accross Canada. As a Diploma holders, you will be eligible to register as a Graduate Technologist with Applied Technologists and Technicians of British Columbia (ASTTBC) and may apply for registration as an Applied Science Technologist after completing a minimum of two years of relevant work experience. Students can apply for student membership in ASTTBC

The Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering is nationally accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB). Students may apply for student membership with the Engineers and Geoscientists BC. Degree holders are eligible for Engineer-in-Training (EIT) membership with Engineers and Geoscientists BC.

Completion of an engineering degree and obtaining EIT enrolment with a provincial engineering licensing body are the first steps for all engineers towards achieving licensure as a Professional Engineer (PEng). Two steps remain: first, the Engineer-in-Training must complete a minimum of four years of satisfactory engineering work experience under the supervision of a registered professional engineer; secondly, the PEng candidate must pass the professional practice exam. As a Professional Engineer, one has the license to practice engineering and a seal to stamp and take responsibility for the designs and drawings one creates.
