This dynamic three-year program gives the student broad and thorough training in all phases of the building industry. The training is directly related to industry standards and working conditions, with challenging projects encompassing building design, building performance, working drawings, building systems, estimating, building-code analysis, specifications, and building information modelling (BIM). Founded on project-based learning principles, the program uses discussion groups, seminars, field trips and practical assignments. Sustainable design and construction practices form the core of this program and cover such topics as structure, building envelope, whole building and universal design, building science, indoor environment systems, building economics, sustainability, renewable energy and energy efficiency. Faculty are highly qualified specialists with current and relevant field experience. The local industry actively supports this program and is used as a teaching resource.
The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) conditionally recognizes this program as meeting all the academic requirements for certification in the Certified Engineering Technologist (CET) category.
Applying to the Co-op Stream
The optional co-op stream includes two co-op work terms.
Co-operative Education integrates academic studies with program-related experience in the workplace. This results in better-trained workers who are familiar with their professional expectations and have the skills needed to contribute to an organization right from the start.
The College cannot guarantee co-op employment. All co-op students are required to conduct an independent co-op job search in addition to the supports and services provided by the Department of Co-op Education.
Students will be informed of the application deadline and process to apply for the Co-op Stream. Labour market conditions determine the number of co-op seats in optional co-op programs. Every student who meets academic eligibility requirements may not be admitted to the co-op stream.
To be considered for admission to the co-op stream, students in the program must successfully complete all courses in Level 1 with a minimum 65% session weighted average or exemption in each of the following core courses: Working Drawings I, Construction Materials I, Architectural CAD I, Surveying I.
Graduates have a wide choice of career opportunities with engineering, architectural, building envelope and LEED/energy efficiency consulting offices, as well as with general and sub-contractors, estimators and building departments. Graduates are eligible for admission to the one-year Construction Project Management graduate certificate programs at Conestoga College.
