Overview

Humber’s Construction Engineering Technology program is one of three stackable programs within the Carpentry-Construction group. Along with the Carpentry and Renovation Techniques certificate and the Building Construction Technician diploma, the program introduces you to the carpentry trade, gives you practical experience with trade regulations and with best practices. Students will be able to move from various certificate and diploma programs into the advanced diploma program (including Carpentry and Renovation Technician, Industrial Woodworking Technician, Carpentry and Renovation Techniques, and Building Construction Technician).

The advanced diploma program is designed to explore the construction industry from an engineering and management perspective. You will become familiar with the strategies required for project planning and execution for the commercial-based industry.

Throughout the program, you will learn about compliance with workplace health and safety practices and procedures in accordance with legislation and regulations. You will also learn how to ensure that work is performed in compliance with contractual obligations, applicable laws, standards, bylaws, codes and ethical practices. Coursework will include sustainability practices. Teamwork, leadership, and supervisory and interpersonal skills will be emphasized.

Key learnings will include:

  • collecting, processing, analyzing and co-ordinating technical data to produce project-related documents
  • co-ordinating and facilitating the collecting, processing, interpreting and application of survey/geomatics and layout information
  • selecting and using industry-specific technologies
  • monitoring projects through principles of construction project management
  • preparing estimates
  • performing, co-ordinating and facilitating quality control testing

Optional Co-op

This program offers a co-op option. Co-op work terms enable you to apply your skills and knowledge in a work environment and gain valuable, practical experience related to your program of study. You will learn new skills, learn about the world of work and meet people in your profession.

For students who are accepted into the program, two co-op work terms will take place. The first four-month work term is between Semesters 2 and 3, and the second four-month work term is between Semesters 4 and 5. There are limited spaces in the co-op option. Therefore, you will apply for the co-op option during Semester 1 and be informed of the process by which to apply. While co-op work opportunities are not guaranteed, as students are in a competitive job placement market, participating students will receive a wide range of services to help them find a co-op opportunity.

Career opportunities

Graduates of the advanced diploma program may find initial employment as an apprentice general carpenter in residential carpentry, and through the program will gain additional construction management and construction engineering skills to prepare for work in commercial and industrial carpentry.

Based on a 2017-2019 employment outlook, the Canadian government’s Department of Employment and Social Development (EDSC) estimates that employment gains in the construction sector will be strong in the Greater Toronto Area due to labour demands resulting from expansions and retirements.

In the next ten years, Build Force Canada estimates that those retiring from the sector will create the largest demand for new skilled carpenters, construction trades helpers and labourers, and contractors and supervisors. The significant loss of skilled labour, combined with the need to prepare the next generation of supervisors and managers, and time required for new entrants to acquire new skills and experience, are the dominant challenges that Ontario, and the rest of Canada, will face between 2016 and 2025.
