Our Program

Humber’s Civil Engineering Technology advanced diploma program provides you with the skills needed to have a career in the growing field of building planning and technology.

In six semesters, our graduates learn to design and construct municipal infrastructure, including concrete, steel and timber structures.

Learn how to:
– produce plans for subdivisions, highways and sites by using electronic surveying and global positioning equipment
– use computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) software and structural analysis software to draw, design, and produce graphics for the construction of bridges, buildings and dams
– design and operate drinking water and wastewater treatment systems, as well as water distribution and sewage collection systems
– project manage, laboratory soil test and determine construction material suitability.

At Humber, you will learn from industry experts, many who work with Greater Toronto Area construction and engineering firms. Our industry partners provide placement opportunities and guidance on how to make the curriculum current and relevant. Humber has a strong reputation in the civil engineering industry, giving you an edge in the employment market.

List of Courses

Your Career

Our graduates may choose to work in the public or private sectors of industry. They work for a number of employers including municipalities, engineering consulting firms, general contractors, builder/developers, architects, land or quantity surveyors, and environmental agencies. Career options include working as structural designers, project and/or construction managers, inspectors, contract administrators, computeraided design and drafting (CADD) operators, land or quantity surveyors, in environmental protection, and as drinking water system operators.

Our Facilities

Our Civil Engineering Technology facilities include well-equipped laboratories and cutting-edge computer programs and equipment. A new steel teaching aid, donated by an industry association and steel companies, shows how the wide variety of structural steel shapes come together and are joined to form the frameworks in buildings, towers, bridges and other edifices, which dot the landscape of Canada. Learning is based on lectures, seminars, small groups, team assignments and labs.

Work Placement

Our program features an optional civil field experience for a minimum of 400 hours, between second and third year. If you choose to participate, you must successfully complete a career management workshop to help develop effective job search skills prior to the field placement. We provide a range of services to support you, including working with business, industry and government to identify placement opportunities.

Professional Accreditation, Endorsement and Recognition

Our program has met national technology accreditation requirements as defined by the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists (CCTT). The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) recognizes the Civil Engineering Technology program as meeting the academic requirements for certification in the technologist category.
