|Field of Study:||Civil Engineering Technology/Technician
|Description:||As a structural engineering technologist, you use the principles and applications of structural design and analysis to assist in the design and construction of building systems, and to perform site inspections and requisite testing.
The first year of training covers the basics of building engineering technology. Many courses are common and may be used as credit courses for other technology options. In the second year, you specialize in steel, timber and reinforced concrete design, structural analysis, engineering drawings, soils and materials testing, and quantity surveying. You also receive instruction in more general areas such as communication and mathematics to help you perform more effectively in the business and industrial climate. A work attachment with industry participants provides you with a measure of on-the-job exposure and training in carrying out a project to completion. Upon successful completion of this program and with two years of acceptable work experience, you may be eligible for certification by the New Brunswick Society of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists.
