About this Civil Engineering Technologies (Water Resources option) Degree

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:

  • 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 Water Resources, your studies will focus on:

  • Meteorological and hydrometric data collection and analysis
  • Water chemistry
  • River engineering
  • Hydrology
  • Watershed Management
  • Water supply and flood and drought management

The emphasis on hands-on learning means you'll spend a lot of your time in labs and on field assignments. You will participate in field and survey camps, practical assignments, and carry out applied research and other projects.
