|Description:||Learn about municipal services, potable water systems, storm water systems, and waste water management; design roadways and gain an understanding of construction techniques, construction layout, electronic surveying, and Global Positioning Systems applications. Students will also acquire CAD, plan reading, and visualization skills needed to create plans for today's modern infrastructure; explore building and construction materials, project scheduling, estimating, and management; develop construction surveying skills, estimating, materials testing, and inspection and geotechnical services; design in steel, timber, masonry, and concrete; and understand how structures work by learning the science of their materials.
Two co-op work terms provide practical experience for students before the enter the job market. Career opportunities as construction supervisors, civil engineering technologists, surveying technologists exist in the public and private sectors, engineering consulting, general contracting, and construction companies. Affiliations include the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT), Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) and the Ontario Good Roads Association (OGRA).
