Civil Engineering Technology (Co-op)

Civil Engineering Technology (Co-op) Ontario College Advanced Diploma, Co-op

What is Civil Engineering Technology (Co-op)?

This program is scheduled to take advantage of typical Canadian construction seasons. Upon graduation, the students are prepared to work with engineers, designers, and construction project managers as an integral part of the team. Students are exposed to three program principles: 1) proposal development (construction of roads, bridges, sewers, water mains, and other infrastructure), 2) cost estimation, and 3) field work (materials testing and project administration). The use of the latest codes and standards, site management techniques, and related computer technologies along with integrated work placement experiences equip graduates to succeed in this rapidly evolving and growing industry.

The graduate has reliably demonstrated the ability to:

  • assemble, analyze, and appropriately apply civil engineering data from existing graphics, reports, and other documents


  • coordinate and facilitate the collection, processing, and interpretation of technical date related to civil engineering projects


  • communicate information effectively and accurately by analyzing, translating, and producing civil engineering documents


  • monitor that all work is completed in compliance with the rights and conditions of contractual obligations
  • applicable law, standards, bylaws, and codes
  • and the accepted principles and practices of civil engineering


  • schedule and coordinate civil engineering projects and monitor the quality and quantity of work


  • assist in planning, designing, inspecting, supervising, and constructing civil engineering projects


  • evaluate the methods employed and the use of equipment and materials involved in the implementation and completion of civil engineering projects


  • use electronic technology to support civil engineering projects


  • apply the principles of mathematics and science to analyze and solve technical problems related to civil engineering projects


  • manage and maintain systems for civil engineering project records, logs, and inventories


  • assist in the assessment of the political, social, and environment impacts of civil engineering projects


  • take into account the interdependence of the architectural, structural, mechanical, and electrical disciplines relating to civil engineering projects


  • liaise among the project stakeholders involved in the design and implementation of civil engineering projects


  • develop and use strategies and plans to enhance professional growth and competence


  • apply basic entrepreneurial strategies to identify and respond to new opportunities.

Co-operative Education is a mandatory component of all Co-op programs at Georgian College; it has been designed as a process by which students integrate their academic education with work experience related to their programs of study. This integration affects much more than simply earning a salary, including the adjustment to the work environment and the development of professionalism. It also reinforces skills and theory learned during academic semesters, develops professional contacts, job knowledge and career path, improves human relations and communication skills, and promotes personal maturity and financial independence.

Students are requested to register, attend and participate in their scheduled co-operative education classes. These classes are scheduled for all first year students and are expected to be completed in order for students to proceed successfully to their first co-op work experiences. To ensure students are eligible to proceed onto any co-op work experience, students should refer to Promotional Status and Eligibility for Co-op as outlined in the College Calendar. Co-op policies and procedures can be located on our website: www.georgiancollege.ca/student-services/co-op-and-career-services/students-tab/

Georgian College follows the Co-operative Education guidelines set out by the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education (CAFCE) and Education at Work Ontario (EWO) by supporting the learning outcomes designed for the program specific graduate profile and curriculum as set out by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
