Welcome to Indigenous Futures in Engineering, Queen's University


Civil engineering - bridges

The Great Wall of China, the Chunnel between England and France, and the Confederation Bridge connecting Prince Edward Island to New Brunswick were all built by civil engineers!

Civil engineers are involved in the design and building of:

  • Highways, bridges and tunnels
  • Schools, hospitals, airports and other buildings
  • Sewage systems and water treatment facilities
In your community: 

On the road to self-sufficiency and self-government, the skills of Native civil engineers will be needed to solve problems related to the community's infrastructure.

Does your community need clean water or paved roads? How about homes, a school or hospital? As a civil engineer you could study the needs of your community and come up with solutions which build for the future while respecting the past.
