Overview

In this dynamic three-year advanced diploma program, students gain a balanced education in civil engineering theory, combined with practical work in laboratories and in the field. Specialization takes place through a third-year major project.

Students become familiar with the structural properties of timber, steel, masonry and concrete and study the design of roads, water distribution, sewage and drainage systems. The major business aspects of civil engineering are also covered, as are technical communications skills.

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 are required to achieve a minimum overall 70% session weighted average and no course failures.

Career opportunities

Graduates work in the broad field of civil engineering at the engineering technologist level and are qualified for employment in the areas of design and detailing, estimating construction costs, coordinating construction schedules and specifications. Graduates can also become advanced in field surveys, soil exploration, construction supervision, and laboratory testing of soils, materials and structures. Graduates are eligible for admission to the one-year Environmental Engineering Applications or Construction Project Management graduate certificate programs at Conestoga College.
