|Field of Study:||Civil Engineering Technology/Technician
|Description:||If you are dreaming of participating in the design and creation of the built environment, then this program is for you. In this three-year advanced diploma program, you will study principles of highway, municipal and building design, geotechniques, soil mechanics, building code and develop skills in materials testing and surveying. You will also learn to use many computer software packages such as AutoCAD, MicroSurvey, Civil 3D, ArcGIS and other advanced software packages specific to specializations in building, municipal or transportation. By the end of your program you will work independently and in teams on capstone projects and technical reports which will reflect the culmination of several skills acquired by you during the program.
The Civil Engineering Technology (CVT) program provides practical, hands-on experiential learning. In providing a real-world experience, indoor and outdoor lab-based subjects will require the use of appropriate industry health & safety equipment and personal protective equipment (PPE). There are also expectations of having to do some heavy lifting of equipment and materials and well as having to navigate outdoor terrain and conditions.
