Construction Engineering Technology Program (T105)

Program Description

Program Overview

The construction industry is one of Canada's largest employers and the demand for construction managers continues to grow. Our three-year Construction Engineering Technology advanced diploma program will provide you with the technical, business and interpersonal skills required to effectively manage construction projects of varying size and complexity, emphasizing sustainable construction practices.

Full Description

Students in this program will gain an in-depth knowledge of the construction industry including:

  • methods and materials of construction
  • construction estimating
  • construction law, contracts and bidding
  • project management and control 
  • construction graphics and detailing 

This program shares the first four semesters with the Construction Engineering Technician program. Semesters 5 & 6 prepare you for a wider range of career options in the construction sector. This three-year program equips you for positions with higher levels of responsibility and accountability in such areas as construction planning, project management, estimating, budget and bid preparation, sustainable building science and engineering studies.

*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.

Your Field Education Options

Please contact the Angelo DelZotto School of Construction Management for updated information regarding field education and experiential learning options.

The field experience requires students to accumulate 100 hours of construction industry-related experience over the course of their third and fourth semesters. The field experience is facilitated through the Angelo DelZotto (ADZ) School of Construction Management.

Field experience is a mandatory component of the T105 Construction Engineering Technology program. Field experience positions can be paid or unpaid. 

Career & Postgraduate Study Opportunities

Construction is the engine that drives the GTA and Ontario economies. In 2019, the industry generated over 360,000 on-site and off-site jobs, paid more than $22 billion in wages and created almost $43 billion in Ontario’s built environment. Nationally, the construction industry employs one out of every 14 working Canadians. However, there remains a shortage of educated and highly skilled workers in the sector.

With an expanding regional transit network stimulating redevelopment and growth and population and demographic shifts at the heart of a demand surge for housing, the GTA has the largest construction activity of any region in Canada. In fact, the City of Toronto continues to report the highest number of construction cranes of any city in North America.

Despite the recent challenges, the construction sector in Ontario remains strong, led by significant government investment and continued demand for housing.

The School of Construction Management Program Advisory Committee (PAC) has an engaged committee with a good and broad representation of the industry. Members contribute their ideas and opinions with respect to curriculum changes, industry trends, awards and scholarships, competitions, special events, work experience and mentoring for students.

Future Study Options

Graduates with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher may be eligible for advanced standing in George Brown College's Honours Bachelor of Technology (Construction Management) degree program. For more information, see T318 program page.


If you are transferring from another Ontario college construction engineering program, you may be eligible for advanced standing. Please consult the Transfer Guide website.
