Environmental Technology (Co-op)
The Environmental Technology (Co-op) program will prepare you to save the planet, without being a superhero.
In this School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science-facilitated offering, you will not only be prepared for the constantly changing field of environmental technology through classroom learning. You may also have the opportunity to enhance your education by applying your newly acquired knowledge to the real world during a co-op component.
Firstly, you will acquire practical training in the three foundations that will allow you to understand and manage complex environmental problems: biology, chemistry and civil engineering. Secondly, you will learn to effectively use the tools and equipment required 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 round out your education and solidify the skills needed to analyze and remediate the urban environment. This unique combination of technical skills will greatly increase your career options.
During your co-op placement, you will put classroom learning into practice, and make valuable contacts for future careers.
Please note: After semester four of Environmental Technology (Co-op), you will have met the requirements for the Ministry of the Environment (MOE) Entry-Level Courses for Drinking Water Operators and be qualified to write the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) Operator-in-Training and Water Quality Analyst exams.
