Overview

Are you interested in Civil Engineering, but lacking some prerequisites? The pre-program access packages give you all the prerequisites needed for entrance into the Civil Engineering Technology program, plus some additional skills to enhance your future success.

Completion of the package gives you a seamless transition into your desired program, improves your study skills and academic readiness, and, for some programs, may give you guaranteed admission and/or advanced standing.

Careers

Upon completion of the Civil Engineering Technology program, you will be qualified for careers in government departments, consulting firms and construction companies in the following positions:

  • Designers
  • Estimators
  • Testers
  • Surveyors
  • Inspectors
  • Supervisors
  • technical writers
  • project managers

In northern BC, there is high demand from industry for Civil Engineering Technologists. Additionally, graduates may continue their education and complete a bridging program that leads to a university degree in engineering.

What You Will Learn

Courses will be delivered with components of face-to-face classroom instruction, computer-aided design and modelling, field surveying, and experimental laboratory testing. Students will develop an understanding of the engineering principles used to perform structural, hydraulic, municipal, transportation, and construction materials design. Effective technical communication and project management skills will be emphasized throughout the program. Students can expect to spend an average of 31 hours per week in class and labs, with additional time spent studying, completing assignments, and doing research. CNC’s Civil Engineering Technology program explores the effects of northern, rural, and remote environments on Civil Engineering projects, with consideration of Indigenous perspectives.
