Prerequisites Needed to Study Civil and Structural Engineering in Canada
Almost all post-secondary schools in Canada with an engineering Faculty or department offer a civil engineering program. These can range from certificates and diplomas, to undergraduate degrees, to graduate degrees. Completion of a degree is the first step in attaining the P.Eng designation (see article on engineering for more details).
Completion of high school is required for admission to most diploma and certificate programs in civil engineering, with the completion (and an average of at least 70%) of English, math, and physics. Upgrading options are usually available for those who have not completed high school or are missing prerequisites.
For undergraduate degree programs, completion of high school is once again a requirement for admission to civil engineering, with an average of at least 75-80%. Generally, English, pre-calculus math, and physics are required. Previous high school courses in geology or chemistry are considered an asset.
