A Civil Engineering Technologist plays an integral role in the design of buildings and infrastructure projects including highways, bridges, water and sewer systems. As a member of the team, the technologist assists engineers in survey work, collection and compilation of data, preparing estimates and bids for project designs and is part of the inspection and quality control process.
This program will appeal to those with an aptitude for assembly, who are analytical and enjoy problem solving and are strong in math. An interest in construction and the environment are essential.
Recognized by the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) allowing easier transition to certification and increased employability in both Canada and the U.S.
Civil Engineering Technologists can choose to work on either side of the job site. Opportunities exist with architects, consulting engineers, material testing firms, general and sub-contractors, Municipal Public Works or the Ministry of Transportation.
Typical entry positions include civil engineering technologist, draftsperson/CAD operator, estimator, inspector and field supervisor. Those completing the program will also have the knowledge and ability to start their own construction business after a few years of practical experience.
Graduates of this program can further their education achieving a Bachelor of Engineering Technology from the University of Windsor, Lakehead University (Thunder Bay) or Lawrence Technological University (Southfield, MI).
