Do you love building communities? In the Civil Engineering field, you’ll help shape the lives of others for years to come. It’s a big responsibility, but hey, you’re up for the challenge!

Through the 2-year Civil Engineering Technician program, you will develop an understanding of planning, design, surveying, material science, project management and construction across a variety of industries.

Gain the core skills needed to excel in an in-demand career that is essential to our communities. Learn about:

• Roadway design and construction techniques
• Computer-aided drafting (AutoCAD) and design and visualization skills
• Electronic surveying
• Project management and estimating
• Municipal services

As a co-operative education program, you’ll gain valuable, real-world experience while making important connections with industry leaders and earning money! Plus, many employers hire co-op grads because of their applied knowledge. Why not give yourself a competitive advantage?

Look around. Chances are there are a few things that have been built without having been touched by the world of civil engineering. And it starts at Sault College.
