Building Engineering Technology: Architectural and Structural

CampusStart Date
MonctonSeptember 2018

Program Overview

Architectural and Structural Engineering Technologists see four walls as the start of endless opportunities. They create architectural designs, structural designs, and analyze ways to build for stability and safety. You’ll learn surveying and drafting, how to create drawings and models, and how to use engineering and materials science with an eye to green building technology. Many courses in your first year are common with other technology programs and provide flexibility for credit transfer. A career in this field is a solid choice with a demand for professionals who can design for style and functionality.


The requirements for this diploma program may be achieved within two years of full-time study.
