Civil Engineering Technologies (Civil Construction option) is a 27-month diploma program offered full time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic Moose Jaw Campus.


About this Civil Engineering Technologies (Civil Construction option) program

It includes five academic semesters and two four-month consecutive Co-operative Education work terms. The program at Saskatchewan Polytechnic  offers two options; Construction and Water Resources. The first two semesters are common to both disciplines. You will build skills in:

  • Surveying
  • Computer applications and modelling
  • Communications
  • Materials analysis and testing procedures and protocols
  • Hydraulics
  • Project Management
  • Municipal infrastructure

Students select their option after successfully completing the second semester. Thirty-six students will be accepted into the Construction option and twenty students will be accepted into the Water Resources option. If the number of students desiring either option is more than the available seats, a competitive entry process will be utilized based on student performance in the first two semesters.

In semesters three, four and five, you will focus on your chosen option. In Construction, you will develop well-rounded knowledge and skills in:

  • Geotechnical Engineering (soils investigations and earthworks projects, etc.)
  • Pavement design
  • Structures (steel, timber, reinforced concrete)
  • Transportation

The Co-op Work Term Advantage

Co-operative work terms are paid, so you'll earn while you learn. Saskatchewan Polytechnic arranges your interviews; it's up to you to shine. It's also a chance to develop important "soft skills" in job interviewing, professional attitude, interpersonal communication and more.

Many of our co-op employers require both a valid Saskatchewan Driver's Licence and a clean Driver's Abstract. For international students, it can take up to 12 months to obtain a Driver's licence; therefore, it is to your advantage to come with a Driver's Licence from your home country if possible.

Some opportunities require a Criminal Record Check and/or drug and alcohol testing.
