Program Entry

Entrance Requirements

There are no formal entrance requirements for the Civil Technology Part-time Certificate. However, it is expected that all students have a good command of the English language and working knowledge of technical mathematics. Students who completed Math 12 more than 5 years ago are strongly recommended to start with one of the required Math courses.

How to Apply

There is no formal application process and it is not necessary to register in the program to take courses.  Students may register for any course of interest to them and it is up to the student to ensure that he or she has the specified prerequisite(s) or equivalent knowledge. Students who wish to complete the Part-time Certificate should submit a Program Declaration form.
