Program Description
Earn an Advanced Ontario Diploma in Civil Engineering Technology in only two years instead of three. We belong to a society of builders. Wherever humans have put down roots, they have raised roofs, walls and monuments to mark their places in space and time. Builders do something no other occupation can accomplish: they change the face of our world. There are technicians and technologists at every point along the building process. Civil engineering technologists assist in recommending design parameters to engineers, conduct inspections of structures, perform tests on soils, concrete or other building materials, analyze results of tests, prepare statistical data, tables and drawings, and supervise construction projects. Students will learn to draw, design and inspect structures in buildings and highways, perform tests on soils and concrete, and survey using the latest equipment. During their second year, they will complete an independent technical report related to civil engineering.

Pathways to Success
Graduates of Civil Engineering Technology may be eligible to enrol in the Civil Engineering program at Lakehead University to complete the degree program. Students wishing to attend Lakehead University should also take CV3001 Soils Mechanics. Civil Engineering Technology graduates may have entry into the McMaster Bachelor of Technology Civil Engineering Infrastructure Technology stream.

Career Opportunities
Graduates may be employed by municipalities, consulting offices, construction, mining, or private industry for companies, such as materials testing companies and land surveyors.
