Environmental Technology

A brief description of the undergraduate degree program (1st program):

Rediscover the way we represent the world and learn to develop innovative technologies and solutions to approach sustainability, benefiting society and the environment. In this science-based, three-year program, students gain academic expertise, combined with hands-on laboratory and field skills to prepare them for employment or to pursue further education. Environmental technologists work within assessment teams, collecting, collating and presenting information that will help decision-makers understand how their decisions will affect the Earth and its inhabitants.

This interdisciplinary diploma program, with cooperative education option is culminated with a sustainability research project, where students will identify, design, develop and complete a research project on a real world sustainable resource management problem.
