About the Civil Engineering and International Development Option

The traditional role of the civil engineer is to design, plan, and construct the built environment for the well-being and progress of society. However, there is an increasing need for the civil engineer to play a further role in poverty reduction and sustainable development, both in Canada and abroad. This change in emphasis requires engineers with different skill-sets and knowledge beyond the familiar civil engineering sub-disciplines. This program has been designed to fulfill this demand by introducing the learner to the complex societal, environmental, political and economic issues impacting engineering activities in less developed communities in Canada and abroad. On completion of the degree, graduates will have the ability to cope with broad ranging international challenges from poverty to climate change to human security.
