All students must choose eight Electives, at least six of which must be Technical Electives from List 1 shown below. The Seventh Elective may be from List 1 or List 2 shown below. The Eighth Elective may be from List 1 or List 2 or a Free Elective - see course list below.

Civil Engineering: Technical Electives

A Free Elective can be any of the following courses with a minimum of 3 credits:

  • Any 3 credit course appearing anywhere in the Applied Science calendar, in the course descriptions list, in the requirements for any academic plan, or in the lists of eligible complementary studies courses
  • Any course at the 100 level or higher from the Arts and Science calendar with any of the following subject codes: ANAT, BCHM, BIOL, CDNS, CHEM, CISC,COGS, COMM, DEVS, GEOL, GIMS, GISC, GISQ, GPHY, HLTH, IDIS, INTS, ENSC,EPID, LING, MATH, MICR, PHAR, PHYS, PHGY, STSC, STAT, WRIT
  • Any of the graduate courses offered in Urban and Regional Planning

Free Electives must be approved by the Undergraduate Chair, please contact the Undergraduate Program Assistant.

  • APSC 480 Multi-disciplinary Industry : Units will not count towards the requirements of taking at least six Technical Electives from List 1 but because of the number of units, they will count towards a Technical Elective, List 2 and Free Elective.
  • APSC 303 Professional Internship can count as a Free Elective (3.5 units) for students who have successfully completed a Queen's Undergraduate Internship Program (QUIP).
