The Civil Engineering Technology program uses math, science and technical communication skills to design and manage the construction of buildings, roads, bridges and other infrastructure projects. The program will prepare you to become a civil engineering design and construction professional. You will receive courses in: math, construction management, structural design, geotechnical engineering, material science, urban services, water resources, transportation infrastructure and technical communications.
In the labs, you will build a house, explore the strength of building materials, mix and test concrete and asphalt samples, and discover the importance of soil mechanics to building projects. In class, the program combines theoretical training, applied skills and laptop delivery modules.
This diploma program is two years in length, consisting of four 15-week semesters. The first two semesters are common to all students in the program. In the fourth semester, you will have the ability to specialize in Construction Management or Municipal Engineering. If an option is oversubscribed, selection is based on the first year cumulative grade point average.
This program accepts students into first semester in September as well as January. Students starting in the fall will study for two semesters per year with a summer break in between. Students starting in the winter semester will study for four consecutive semesters with a one or two week break between semesters.
