U of T's Department of Civil & Mineral Engineering (CivMin) offers students the strengths and resources of two excellent programs.
Civil engineering focuses on the design, construction and maintenance of structures and infrastructure, from the deepest tunnels to the tallest buildings.
Students in the Civil Engineering program choose courses in areas like Structural Engineering; Transportation Engineering & Planning; Building Engineering; Geomechanics; and Environmental Engineering. In each of these areas, Toronto is a living lab for our students.
Everything that humans use is either caught, grown or mined. Mineral engineering is the applied science of our interaction with the planet.
What sets the Lassonde Mineral Engineering program apart is our broad approach to the discipline: here, your courses will cover topics in chemical, civil, materials, mechanical and computer engineering, as well as math, physics and geology. You’ll be taught by researchers and engineering professionals working in the Lassonde Institute of Mining, a new $20-million international centre of excellence at U of T.
