Overview

Help Build Tomorrow’s Cities!

Infrastructure is the backbone of our lives. The roads, railways, bridges, water pipes, sewer systems, commercial and industrial parks, even residential developments – everything that keeps a city alive depends upon infrastructure. In turn, infrastructure depends on the civil engineers who build and maintain it. Sound like a challenge?

Confederation College’s Civil Engineering Technology diploma program is an intensive three-year program that gives you the practical skills and knowledge you need to enter this incredible field. Learn the basics including computerized analysis, construction materials & methods, surveying, design and drafting, highways, hydrology, municipal design, construction management, structural analysis, AutoCAD and environmental issues. 

If you have good math skills, a logical mind and the desire to build upon the world around you, the Civil Engineering Technology program will give you the tools you need to succeed.

Highlights

  • Program is up-to-date with the technology used in the field today
  • Planned work experience plus optional co-op work placements give you experience in the field
  • Work in a variety of fields including city building, maintenance, mining, roads and highways, rail, specialty projects, and more – anywhere around the world!
