Civil Engineering Technology is a 2-year diploma program or 2-and-a-half year co-op diploma program through which students will learn how to design and manage construction, infrastructure and research projects.

The curriculum has been developed with industry input to ensure the programs covers all of the theoretical and practical elements that are essential within the broad field of civil engineering. With the help of hands-on learning and supportive, experienced instruction, students will apply computer-aided design & drafting (CADD) systems to civil engineering problems in the areas of:

  • structural design
  • urban services design
  • highway design
  • pavement design
  • geotechnical design

After the first semester of the Civil Engineering Technology program, students will have the option to apply for its co-op component. If accepted into the co-op program, the student will work with a consulting engineering firm, civil engineering department or a building and infrastructure contracting firm. The scope of work may include planning, design, testing, inspection and supervision.

30 students will be selected for the Co-Op Educational Stream based on academic achievement and need for work experience before graduation. The total length of the co-op program stream is 2.5 years, which includes 63 weeks of academic training and two 24-week work placements.
