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).

Description

Municipal 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. You may find work in areas of construction, design and supervision, highways and transportation engineering, water resources engineering, geotechnical engineering, and environmental engineering and protection. 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 Municipal Engineering Technology in Year Two after your six-month work co-op.

In the Municipal Engineering Technology program, you take more advanced courses and build on the competencies you gained in first year. The focus is on application and design. Courses include subjects such as:
  • Water supply and wastewater collection
  • Hydrology
  • Earth structures and soil behavior
  • Fluid properties and behavior
  • Roadway design
  • Pavement mix design
An applied research project is incorporated into final term courses.
