    Course Summary

    Civil Engineers design and build the roads, bridges, tunnels, water supplies and other infrastructure elements that make modern life possible. Camosun College’s Diploma in Civil Engineering Technology is perfect for anyone who wants to prepare themselves to transfer into a BEng program, as well as students eager to work in one of many civil engineering related fields immediately after graduation.

    This program can be taken with or without an internship or co-operative element. Those who take advantage of this opportunity can expect to gain a substantial amount of real world experience in the practical side of civil engineering, and will be much more attractive to employers and recruiters for traditional 4 year BEng programs alike.

    Co-op placements must be followed by an academic term, but internships can take place at any time, even following your last term at Camosun. Note that all co-op placements are paid, whilst some internships will be unpaid and other will be paid.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
