CIVL 235 Requirements

Please note:  We are now able to confirm that CIVL 235 will be delivered online in August 2020.  Therefore, you should NOT relocate to the UBC campus in order to participate in this course.  However, online attendance at the times indicated for this course (see below) is mandatory – regardless of the time zone in which you are located. 

CIVL 235, Plane Surveying, which is a core (compulsory) course of the Civil Engineering program, normally commences at the end of second year, immediately after spring examinations, and it continues full time for two weeks, including Saturdays. For 2020, the course has been postponed so as to run full-time from Monday, August 24 to Friday, September 4, inclusive – including Saturday, August 29, but excluding Sunday, August 30. The final examination for the course will take place on Friday, September 4. This course will appear on your academic record as a 2020 – 2021 Winter Session Term 1 course.

Please note that, if you had been registered to complete the course in May 2020, then your registration will not be automatically transferred to the course to be delivered in August 2020, and you will need to re-register in CIVL 235 directly.  In the event that you are unable to attend in August 2020, you have the option of taking the course instead in May 2021.  Please note that this course is not a prerequisite for other courses in the Civil Engineering program, but must be completed prior to graduation. 

Online Delivery.  One or more assessment components will involve a remotely proctored environment based on the Proctorio platform.    You may only complete these assessments on a laptop or desktop (not a smartphone or a tablet) that has Google Chrome installed and that has a built-in webcam and microphone.  Using Chrome, you should Google "Proctorio Chrome extension" and download the Proctorio Chrome extension as an extension to your browser.  Please ensure that you have suitable hardware / software in advance of taking the course.  [Further details will be provided at the start of the course.]
