The demand for sustainable development and environmental protection is growing worldwide. The Environmental Engineering Technology program focuses on stewardship of environmental resources. The curriculum includes aspects of water resources management and protection, water supply and treatment, wastewater collection and treatment, soil remediation, solid waste management, air quality, GIS and remote sensing, environmental management, project management, and health and safety. The program provides opportunity for you to gain work experience in relevant industries through two co-op work terms.

You must register in and successfully complete Year 1 of Civil Engineering Technology. You can then enter Environmental Engineering Technology in Year Two after your first six-month co-op.

In the Environmental Engineering Technology program, you take more advanced courses and build on the competencies you gained in your first year. The focus is on application and design. Courses include subjects such as:

• Environmental Sciences,

• Water Resources,

• Water & Wastewater Treatment,

• Waste Management,

• Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and

• Environmental Management

An applied technical project is incorporated into the final year.


The Environmental Engineering Technology program balances career related technical skills with transferable skills most sought by leading employers. Graduate students will be able to:

• Apply analytical and research skills and sustainability principles to environmental issues.

• Use effective environmental management and project administration techniques

• Communicate effectively through public speaking, clear writing, and active listening

• Develop proficiency in computer software applications related to the environmental field

• Think independently and work collaboratively to analyze and solve problems

• Collect and manage information by using an appropriate technology

• Understand and use numbers by observing, recording, and reporting data

• Promote effective health and safety practices

• Demonstrate ethical behaviours and practices

The Certified Technicians and Technologists Association (CTTAM) has partnered with Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba (EGM) to create the Specific Scope of Practice License (Eng. L.).

As a certified Engineering Licensee, you will have the opportunity to practice engineering or geoscience within a limited scope of a specific discipline, even if you do not have an engineering or geoscience degree. With your RRC engineering technology diploma, you will need at least 5 years of work experience before applying (8 years total, includes schooling).
