The Department of Civil Engineering was formed in 1960 in the Faculty of Engineering. A new Civil Engineering wing was opened at the University in 1982. In 2005, the Faculty of Engineering was renamed the Schulich School of Engineering.
The department approaches teaching by exposing the students to the broad base of the discipline and then allowing options for specialization. At the graduate level, degrees offered are PhD, MSc, and MEng.
