Your Career

If you’re passionate about the environment, our Environmental Technology (EMT) program could have you working in a variety of rewarding roles in just six semesters. Your career could include employment with environmental, engineering, planning consulting firms, government agencies, private contractors, municipalities, utilities and telecommunication firms. Your work will involve environmental assessment investigations, environmental sampling, data collection and monitoring, mapping, data management, computer modelling, watershed planning, land development, construction monitoring, supervision and inspection, surveying, and municipal and transportation planning and engineering design. Earn your Environmental Technology advanced diploma and pursue a career as a designer, supervisor, project manager, co-ordinator, water resources modeller or inspector on construction projects, subdivisions and environmental protection and enhancement initiatives.

Co-operative Education Option

Students from both the Environmental Technology and Technician programs can benefit from an optional co-operative education program. Once you’ve completed semester one with passing grades in all subjects, and met appropriate GPA requirements, you’ll be eligible to apply.

There are valuable services to facilitate placement opportunities available for students enrolling in the program in semester two. You’ll gain access to them through the Co-op Professional Practice subject and co-op facilities. The co-op program consists of one work term from May to August that provides a wealth of valuable course-related experience, employer contacts and greater opportunities for permanent placement after graduation.
