Program Information

School:Cambrian College
Faculty:School of Engineering Technology
Field of Study:Civil Engineering Technology/Technician
Description:The civil engineering technician is a practical member of the civil engineering team, responsible for planning, costing, building, maintaining and rehabilitating roads, bridges, buildings, dams, sewage and water treatment systems, airports, pipelines, subways, and railways. The technician is concerned with drafting, surveying, construction methods, costs, quality control, and inspections.

Computers have become a fundamental tool in engineering. The College's computer-aided drafting (CAD) laboratories provide the civil engineering technician with practical, hands-on experience. Students also receive surveying training utilizing fully automated state-of-the-art distance and angle measuring equipment that can store data in an electronic field book which is later interfaced with a computer. To meet the demand for structural steel detailers, students are also taught automated structural detailing.

A full two-week surveying course is held in the first part of May, at the end of the second semester. Attendance is compulsory to complete the program. Students are urged to let employers know that they are not available for summer employment until the course is officially completed.
