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 Polytech engineering technology diploma, you will need at least 5 years of work experience before applying (8 years total, includes schooling).

To find out more about this new license category, please go to the Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba website at: http://www.enggeomb.ca/SSPL.html.


Architectural engineering technologists provide technical support and services to engineers, architects, scientists, and other professionals. Since they study a broad range of content areas, they develop a diverse skill set making them employable in a wide variety of positions. The Architectural/Engineering Technology program combines the practical skills with the knowledge of architecture, engineering, and construction of buildings. You will study building systems through application of architectural concepts, engineering principles and construction practices. 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 Architectural/Engineering Technology in Year Two after your first six-month work co-op.

In the Architectural/Engineering Technology program, you will 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:

  • Residential and commercial programming, design, and construction
  • Project estimation, administration, and management
  • Structural analysis
  • Timber, steel, masonry, and reinforced concrete design
  • Soil and foundations
  • Mechanical systems
  • Architectural environmental systems, plumbing, lighting, electrical, and sound control
  • Green building practices
  • Construction materials and systems
  • Materials testing
An applied technical project is incorporated into final year.
