  • Objectives
    This nationally accredited program prepares you for the constantly changing field of environmental technology. Practical training in the three foundation disciplines of biology, chemistry and civil engineering means that graduate technologists can understand and manage complex environmental problems. This unique combination of technical skills will greatly increase your career options. You will learn to function effectively with the tools and equipment used in microbiology, ecological field sampling, analytical chemistry, hazardous material management, surveying and municipal engineering, AutoCAD drawing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping. Laboratory practice in water quality testing, groundwater movement, computer aided environmental audits and the chemistry of pollutants will give you the skills needed to analyze and remediate the urban environment.
  • Practical experience
    There is an optional co-op aspect associated with this program.
