Cambridge - Fountain Street Campus
In this dynamic three-year advanced diploma program, students gain a balanced education in civil engineering theory, combined with practical work in laboratories and in the field. Specialization takes place through a third-year major project. The optional co-op stream includes two co-op work terms. Students become familiar with the structural properties of timber, steel, masonry and concrete and study the design of roads, water distribution, sewage and drainage systems. The major business aspects of civil engineering are also covered, as are technical communications skills. The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) conditionally recognizes this program as meeting all the academic requirements for certification in the Certified Engineering Technologist (CET) category.
