The institution of Manitoba (also known as U of M, UManitoba, or UM) is a public research institution in Canada's Manitoba province. It is the first university in western Canada and was established in 1877. The institution of Manitoba is the largest institution in the province of Manitoba and the 17th largest in all of Canada, both in terms of overall student enrollment and campus size. With several campuses spread out over the city, its main campus is situated in the southern Winnipeg neighborhood of Fort Garry. The University of Manitoba operates three more significant campuses in addition to the Fort Garry campus, which serves as its hub: the Bannatyne Campus, the James W. Burns Executive Education Centre, and the William Norrie Centre. The institution also oversees the Winnipeg neighborhood of Saint Boniface's French-language affiliate, Université de Saint-Boniface. The university asserts that it continues to be known as a top research-intensive post-secondary educational institution, conducting more research each year than any other university in the area and consistently ranking among the best in the Canadian Prairies for both its competitive academic and research programs. As a result of research at the University of Manitoba, several well-known contributions have been made, including the development of canola oil in the 1970s. Similarly, U of M graduates include, among many others, Nobel Prize winners, Academy Award winners, Order of Merit recipients, and Olympic medalists. The University of Manitoba has awarded 99 Rhodes Scholarships as of 2019, more than any other university in western Canada.Additionally, the institution has produced a large number of public officials, including as Supreme Court justices, province premiers, and Members of Parliament (MPs). The University of Minnesota is a part of Universities Canada, the U15 group of research-intensive Canadian universities, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities, among other international connections. The Canada West Universities Athletic Association (CWUAA) and U Sports member team, the Manitoba Bisons, represent the group in athletics.
The oldest engineering program in Western Canada is the civil engineering program at the University of Manitoba. All of our alumni are qualified to work as professional engineers in Canada thanks to the complete accreditation of our undergraduate curriculum. With the option of co-operative education, students can gain real-world job experience while still in school. One of the five undergraduate engineering majors available following a common year of foundation study is the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. Academically eligible to register as Engineers-in-Training with engineering licensing organizations in Canada are graduates of the civil engineering degree. The goal of the civil engineering program is to provide students with a thorough understanding of engineering theory and practical practice. The program has a strong core component that exposes students to a variety of civil engineering topics, including but not limited to the design of buildings and bridges, water, waste, and solid waste treatment facilities and methods, foundation and bank protection techniques, transportation planning, road and pavement design, and the design of hydraulic structures like sewers, canals, and spillways. There are several chances for specialization in the program's final years through the selection of technical optional courses, including an environmental alternative. Laboratory components are a common feature of civil engineering undergraduate courses. Our students participate in these labs, which are held in specialized labs like the following: - Laboratory for engineering mechanics, - Testing facilities for materials and structures, - Hydraulics research lab, - A geotechnical lab, - Laboratory for environmental engineering, - Labs for computers
