  • Objectives
    In this science-based, two-year program you’ll gain academic expertise combined with hands-on laboratory and field skills to prepare you for immediate work. Environmental Technologists work within assessment teams, collecting, collating and presenting information that will help decision-makers understand how their decisions will affect the Earth and its inhabitants. The program also provides up to two years of transfer credit, allowing you to transfer to a university and directly into third year studies to complete a degree in biology, geography or environmental studies. It contains 13 courses (minimum) which have academic transfer to most universities. The Environmental Technology program has block transfer to the BSc in Environmental Science program at Royal Roads University.
