The Civil Engineering Technology advanced diploma program is a three-year program that focuses on the planning, design, and construction of roads, bridges, tunnels, sub-divisions, buildings, municipal services, and heavy infrastructure. Students learn to ensure projects are functional, economical, and meet standards and codes. There is a blend of lectures, laboratories, and tutorials, with a focus on real drawing sets. This program also teaches CIM (Civil Information Modelling) through the use of the latest industry-standard software. There is an option for co-op.

The Civil Engineering Technology advanced diploma program includes:

  • Designing reinforced concrete structures, storm, water, and sanitary systems, roads, and steel-framed structures.
  • Interpreting construction drawings and specifications for various types of projects through extensive practical training from project drawing sets.
