Our Department

Welcome to Civil Engineering at Memorial University.

Most of us can not imagine a world without roads, bridges, water supply, waste treatment facilities and power delivered to our homes. As a civil engineer, you will plan, design and build infrastructure that is used by millions of people every day. You’ll also manage, operate and maintain them.

Memorial offers well-balanced, diverse courses across a range of engineering specialties: structural; construction; geotechnical; water resources; environmental; transportation; and offshore, coastal and ocean. In your final semester, your studies will culminate in a large group project under the supervision of a registered professional engineer.

Our graduates are in high demand because of the experience they’ve garnered through rewarding work placements. They go on to have successful careers in the public and private sectors and in educational institutions. Many students are attracted to our civil engineering program for offshore oil and gas development, which is unique because of our proximity to the ocean.

I think that you will soon discover that Memorial is a special place. Our impressive faculty-student ratio and smaller class sizes ensure a personal learning environment. We make every attempt to get to know you and ensure your time here is rewarding.

I invite you to visit our website to learn about our department, staff, and current news. There are special sections for undergraduate, graduate and future students as well as our research areas, projects and facilities.

Good luck in your studies. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or other faculty members in the department.
