Effective    :   2013 – 2014

Location    :   Barrie

Start          :   Fall (Barrie)

Description
This three-year program is scheduled to take advantage of the construction seasons. The program prepares graduate technologists to work with engineers, designers, and construction project managers as an integral part of the team. Students are exposed to three program principles:

  1. proposal development (construction of roads, bridges, sewers, water mains, and other infrastructure),
  2. cost estimation, and
  3. field work (materials testing and project administration).

A comprehensive understanding of the latest codes and standards, site management techniques, and related computer technologies equip graduates to succeed in this rapidly evolving and growing industry.

Career Opportunities
Graduates find work in the private sector as quantity surveyors (estimators), purchasers, site supervisors and project managers, drafters, or detailers using CAD technology. They may also find employment as assistants in engineering offices. Public sector employment in a variety of government agencies, including building inspection/code enforcement are employment options for the graduate.

Program Learning Outcomes
The graduate has reliably demonstrated the ability to:

  • assemble, analyze, and appropriately apply civil engineering data from existing graphics, reports, and other documents;
  • coordinate and facilitate the collection, processing, and interpretation of technical date related to civil engineering projects;
  • communicate information effectively and accurately by analyzing, translating, and producing civil engineering documents;
  • monitor that all work is completed in compliance with the rights and conditions of contractual obligations; applicable law, standards, bylaws, and codes; and the accepted principles and practices of civil engineering;
  • schedule and coordinate civil engineering projects and monitor the quality and quantity of work;
  • assist in planning, designing, inspecting, supervising, and constructing civil engineering projects;
  • evaluate the methods employed and the use of equipment and materials involved in the implementation and completion of civil engineering projects;
  • use electronic technology to support civil engineering projects;
  • apply the principles of mathematics and science to analyze and solve technical problems related to civil engineering projects;

  • facilitate liaison among the project stakeholders involved in the design and implementation of civil engineering projects;
  • develop and use personal and professional strategies and plans to enhance professional growth and competence.

Practical Experience:
Co-operative Education is a mandatory component of all Co-op programs at Georgian College; it has been designed as a process by which students integrate their academic education with paid work experience related to their program of study. This integration affects much more than simply earning a salary, including the adjustment to the work environment and the development of professionalism. It also reinforces skills and theory learned during academic semesters, develops professional contacts, job knowledge and career path, improves human relations and communication skills and promotes personal maturity and financial independence.

Students are requested to register, attend and participate in their scheduled co-operative education classes. These classes are scheduled for all first year students and are expected to be completed in order to proceed successfully to their first co-op work experience. To ensure students are eligible to proceed onto any co-op work experience students should refer to Promotional Status and Eligibility for Co-op as outlined in the College Calendar.

Co-op policies and procedures can be located on our website: http://www.georgiancollege.ca/student-services/co-op-and-career-services/

Georgian College follows the Co-operative Education guidelines set out by the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education (CAFCE) and Education at Work Ontario (EWO) by supporting the learning outcomes designed for the program specific graduate profile and curriculum as set out by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.

Practical Experience:

Co-operative Education is a mandatory component of all Co-op programs at Georgian College; it has been designed as a process by which students integrate their academic education with work experience related to their program of study. This integration affects much more than simply earning a salary, including the adjustment to the work environment and the development of professionalism. It also reinforces skills and theory learned during academic semesters, develops professional contacts, job knowledge and career path, improves human relations and communication skills and promotes personal maturity and financial independence.

Students are requested to register, attend and participate in their scheduled co-operative education classes. These classes are scheduled for all first year students and are expected to be completed in order to proceed successfully to their first co-op work experience. To ensure students are eligible to proceed onto any co-op work experience students should refer to Promotional Status and Eligibility for Co-op as outlined in the College Calendar. Co-op policies and procedures can be located on our website: http://www.georgiancollege.ca/student-services/co-op-and-career-services/

Georgian College follows the Co-operative Education guidelines set out by the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education (CAFCE) and Education at Work Ontario (EWO) by supporting the learning outcomes designed for the program specific graduate profile and curriculum as set out by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
