Overview

Courses in this college science program will cover the three foundational disciplines of biology, chemistry and civil engineering — and teach you to understand and manage complex environmental problems. To balance theory, you'll gain 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. You'll also acquire the skills to analyze and remidate the urban environment through laboratory practice in water quality testing, groundwater movement, computer aided environmental audits and the chemistry of pollutants.

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

Co-op Option 

This Environmental Technology program from Centennial College offers an optional co-op component. During this opportunity, academically-qualified students can put classroom learning into practice and make valuable contacts for future careers.

To participate in programs with optional co-op, you'll typically complete an application process in the second semester of your studies. If you qualify academically, you'll be admitted to the co-op program. When you graduate, your diploma will highlight the co-op credential.
