Program description

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.

Industry support

The City of Barrie Logo

The Civil Engineering Technology program at Georgian College has developed a strong connection with the City of Barrie over a number of years. Together with the college and others, the City has advised on the creation of new curriculum and continued improvement of existing program outcomes that meet the needs in both the public and private sectors of civil engineering.  With this partnership, the City of Barrie offers many co-operative work terms to our civil students, helping them to develop in their profession. The City of Barrie is a valuable contributor and partner to prepare students to gain full-time employment upon graduation.

Accreditation

This program is accredited by the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education (CAFCE).
