About the Program

In this two-year diploma program, you will learn the fundamentals to prepare for a career as a civil engineering technician. Your studies will include computer drafting, municipal and building practices, material testing and field surveying. At the completion of your first year, you will have the option to transfer to the Civil Engineering Technology program (requires a grade of C or better in Strength of Materials and GPA of 2.5). This program offers workplace integrated learning available to students starting semester one in September and completing subsequent, second semester in April.

Work Experience

Optional Co-op

Students meeting all academic requirements may have the opportunity to complete an optional co-op work term(s) in a formal work environment. In most cases the work term(s) is a full-time paid position completed between two academic semesters.  In programs with limited co-op opportunities, additional academic requirements and a passing grade on a communication assessment may be required for eligibility.  Eligibility for participation does not guarantee a work position will be secured. Additional fees are required for those participating in the optional co-op stream regardless of success in securing a work position.
