Fresh water resources throughout Canada and the world are being impacted by stresses from population and technological growth, contamination and mismanagement, along with global climate change. The Environmental Engineering Technology program provides the necessary skills, education and training required to take on the responsibilities of an engineering technologist in the management, protection, development and use of fresh water resources.
Build your portfolio of skills and knowledge that focus on surface and groundwater management and protection. Topics covered in this program include: surface and groundwater hydrology, biology in the aquatic environment, principles of water and wastewater treatment and soil analytical procedures. In addition, you also learn practices related to the protection of soil, ground and surface water, along with remedial methods, groundwater exploration and evaluation and the supervision of drilling and well construction programs. Representative sampling, data collection and interpretation are emphasized within the context of site assessments.
