Investment in engineering infrastructure construction in Ontario has increased dramatically in the last 10 years. Continuing investment in infrastructure development and redevelopment in the GTA has resulted in strong job placement for our graduates in recent years. This trend will likely continue for the foreseeable future.

Graduates of the Humber College’s Civil Engineering Technology advanced diploma program work in both the public and private sectors of industry typically with municipalities, engineering consulting firms, general contractors, builder/developers, architects, land or quantity surveyors, and environmental agencies. Careers could include working as designers; project managers; inspectors; drafters; or contractors on structural, municipal, transportation or environmental projects.
