Description:“Civil engineering is a vital art, working with the great sources of power in nature for the wealth and well-being of the whole of society. Its essential feature is the exercise of imagination to engineer the products and processes, and develop the people needed to create and maintain a sustainable natural and built environment. It requires a broad under­standing of scientific principles, a knowledge of materials and the art of analysis and synthesis. It also requires research, team working, leadership and business skills. Civil engineering is a classic, dynamic and creative profession.” (Institute of Civil Engineers)

Civil engineering technologists play an es­sential role in this process. They are involved with the planning, design, construction, main­tenance, and environmental assessment of infrastructure projects. Projects include high­ways, streets, bridges, dams and reservoirs, parks, subdivisions, industrial, commercial and residential buildings, water supply and waste­water systems and treatment facilities.

Career opportunities include consulting engineering firms, govern­ment, construction firms, industries, munici­palities, utilities and telecommunications. Graduates have typically found employment all over eastern Ontario, including Kings­ton, Ottawa and Toronto as well as across Canada. Work opportunities in the U.S. and overseas are virtually unlimited. Over the past five years, almost 100% of our Civil Engi­neering Technology graduates have found employment in their chosen profession.
