Overview

College Diploma in Civil Engineering Technician

Cutting-edge skills for the biggest job sites

How do biology, chemistry and hydraulics intersect in a sewer? You’ll discover the answer to that – and much more – thanks to the Northern College Civil Engineering Technician program.

Blending lectures and lab work, this two-year diploma will prepare you to carry out technical functions across a broad range of civil engineering fields – including infrastructure construction, resource management and environmental protection.

You’ll hone the complex math and physics skills you’ll need on the job. And – with a focus on sustainable design and construction practices – you’ll prepare to support large-scale projects of all kinds.

You’ll study how engineering materials respond to pressure, temperature and other stresses. You’ll learn how fluid mechanics affect everything from swimming pool design to hydroelectric dams. 

And you’ll come to appreciate why concrete theory and soil mechanics are literally the foundation of construction.
