O que eu aprenderei?

Our Environmental Technology program provides you with theoretical and practical knowledge needed for success in the growing field of environmental technology. Courses in this college science program cover the three foundational disciplines of biology, chemistry and civil engineering — and teach you to understand and manage complex environmental problems. Courses also provide you with hands-on experience using technology and equipment in water and soil quality analysis, ecological field sampling, analytical chemistry, hazardous material management, surveying, municipal engineering, AutoCAD drawing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping.

Laboratory practice in water quality testing, groundwater movement, computer aided environmental audits and the chemistry of pollutants provides you with the skills needed to analyze and remediate the urban environment.

The unique combination of technical skills in this advanced diploma program will greatly increase your career options.

Co-op Option

This program offers an optional co-op component. Academically-qualified students can put classroom learning into practice and make valuable contacts for future careers.

To participate in programs with optional co-op, students will typically complete an application process in the second semester of their studies, and if academically qualified, will be admitted to the co-op program. When you graduate, your diploma will highlight the co-op credential.

Program Highlights

You can participate in local conservation and restoration activities.

Graduates can apply to register with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).

After you complete Semester 4 courses, you can write the Ontario Ministry of the Environment Operator-in-Training (OIT) and Water Quality Analyst (WQA) exams.

Environmental Technology (and its co-op version) is the recipient of the President's Academic Program Recognition Award for Outstanding Student Satisfaction.

The Biotechnology, Environmental Technology and Food Science Technology programs share a common first semester, which provides the flexibility to transfer between programs before starting the second semester.
