Civil Engineering Technology

Lethbridge College

Lethbridge College

www.lethbridgecollege.ca
Civil engineering builds the infrastructure of society. Buildings, homes, cities, roads and bridges are all products of civil engineering. Our intensive two-year "nationally accredited" diploma program in Civil Engineering Technology will prepare you for a rewarding career in civil engineering technology and construction management. The first year of the program focuses on engineering fundamentals including topics such as Computer Assisted Drafting (CAD) and land surveying to fluid mechanics, applied physics, and concrete technology. In the second year, the emphasis is on engineering design and management. This encompasses structural design and detailing, construction methods, environmental technology, municipal/highway design, estimating and business management. Industry standard computer applications are used in combination with hands-on experiences to culminate in an applied research project. These projects involve data collection, fieldwork, and interaction with engineering technology professionals. The environmental and ethical dimensions of civil engineering are also considered. While engineers build to improve society, construction has environmental and social costs that must be considered. The classroom, fieldwork and project experience will prepare technologists with skills to balance costs and benefits in the construction process. A Civil Engineering Technology diploma paves the way for a great career as a technology professional.
