Hands-on, industry-relevant skills
The Civil Engineering Technology program is delivered through classroom lectures, computer labs, geotechnical labs and field surveying. We pride ourselves on providing you with supportive instruction in small classes led by knowledgeable instructors who have years of experience working in industry.
You can expect to spend on average 27 hours per week attending classes and labs over the course of the 2-year program, and approximately 20-45 hours per week studying, completing assignments and doing research.
After your first semester of the Civil Engineering Technology program, you’ll have the option to apply for its co-op component.
If you’re accepted into the co-op program, you 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.
This work placement will provide you with practical work experience that will help you connect program theory to real-world application, help you develop your career skills and professionalism, and provide networking opportunities, setting you up for success after graduation.
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. Work placements occur from May through October.
