This three-year advanced diploma program provides students with career opportunities in the field of environmental/civil engineering at the engineering technologist level. The curriculum is designed to provide a balanced education in civil engineering technology and aspects of environmental engineering technology, catering to students’ special interests by means of a major project in the third year. Classroom instruction will be complemented by participation at an in-house training session in a local environmental/civil engineering consulting firm, environmental monitoring training in the field, visits to solid-waste management facilities and to sites undergoing environmental remediation. The first two semesters are common with the Civil Engineering Technology program. During the final four semesters, the student will complete courses related to the civil/environmental engineering field.
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 must have a minimum 70% session weighted average and no course failures.
Graduates are qualified for employment in engineering offices in the areas of design and detailing, estimating, construction costs, coordinating construction schedules and specifications, in field surveys, soil exploration, construction supervision, and laboratory testing of soils, materials and structures.
