In this two-year diploma program, you will learn the fundamentals to prepare for a career as a civil engineering technician. Your studies will include computer drafting, municipal and building practices, material testing and field surveying. At the completion of your first year, you will have the option to transfer to the Civil Engineering Technology program (requires a grade of C or better in Strength of Materials).

The Civil Engineering Technician (CVL) program provides practical, hands-on experiential learning. In providing a real-world experience, indoor and outdoor lab-based subjects will require the use of appropriate industry health & safety equipment and personal protective equipment (PPE). There are also expectations of having to do some heavy lifting of equipment and materials and well as having to navigate outdoor terrain and conditions.
