The Civil Engineering Technology advanced diploma program focuses on civil infrastructure design, construction, repair and restoration strategies, business and management optimization, and applied research related to the current and emerging tools of infrastructure management and renewal. Students gain the knowledge and skills needed to address infrastructure deterioration by investigating and applying the latest technologies to solving problems.

Full Program Descriptions

Description  

Canada’s civil infrastructure delivers essential services and is comprised of highways, roads and bridges, as well as systems for water supply, storm water management and waste water treatment. Many elements of this infrastructure are deteriorating and, in addition, there is a growing need to examine and update systems that were designed to transport energy and fuel to include renewable energy sources.

The Civil Engineering Technology advanced diploma program focuses on civil infrastructure design, construction, repair and restoration strategies, business and management optimization, and applied research related to the current and emerging tools of infrastructure management and renewal.

Students will gain the knowledge and skills needed to address infrastructure deterioration by investigating and applying the latest technologies to solving problems. Students will be able to make the business decisions leading to lower maintenance and repair costs, along with higher levels of service to promote public health, the environment and the economic prosperity of our communities.

*If you enrol in the program in January, you are required to complete semester 2 in the summer (May to August) of the same year in order to continue into semester 3 in the fall.



Program Standards and Learning Outcomes  

Program standards apply to all similar programs of instruction offered by colleges across the province. Each program standard for a postsecondary program of instruction includes the following elements:

  • Vocational standard (the vocationally specific learning outcomes which apply to the program in question),
  • Essential employability skills (the essential employability skills learning outcomes which apply to all programs of instruction), and
  • General education requirement (the requirement for general education in postsecondary programs of instruction).

The vocational and essential employability skills components of program standards are expressed in terms of learning outcomes. Learning outcomes represent culminating demonstrations of learning and achievement. In addition, learning outcomes are interrelated and cannot be viewed in isolation of one another. As such, they should be viewed as a comprehensive whole. They describe performances that demonstrate that significant integrated learning by graduates of the program has been achieved and verified.
