Environmental Engineering Technology

Diploma

Program Overview

Environmental engineering technologists are on the front lines of environmental protection. You apply science, ecology and engineering to minimize the adverse impacts of human activity on the natural world. You will develop the skills to apply engineering and technology solutions to real world environmental issues.

At Saskatchewan Polytechnic, you’ll learn the applied science behind environmental protection. When you graduate, you’ll have the skills to work in pollution monitoring, environmental audits, environmental management, site assessment and remediation, project management and waste management.

The Environmental Engineering Technology program is a 32-month diploma offered full time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic Moose Jaw campus. You will take five academic semesters and participate in three Co-operative Education work terms (two consecutive terms after first year, and one term in the summer of second year).

The well-rounded curriculum includes:

  • environmental impact evaluation and mitigation
  • environmental monitoring and control, and data collection and analysis
  • environmental site assessment and remediation
  • ecology, aquatic chemistry, hydrology and hydrogeology
  • atmospheric quality and monitoring
  • soil analysis and classification
  • solid and liquid waste management
  • surveying and drafting
  • computer applications and modeling
  • technical report writing

Your learning time is 60 per cent in the classroom and 40 per cent in labs, field camps and activities and projects. You’ll build practical skills that ensure you are job ready on graduation.

The Co-op Work Term Advantage

Co-operative work terms are paid, so you’ll earn while you learn. Saskatchewan Polytechnic arranges your interviews; it’s up to you to shine. It’s also a chance to develop important “soft skills” in job interviewing, professional attitude, interpersonal communication and more.

Many of our co-op employers require both a valid Saskatchewan Driver's Licence and a clean Driver's Abstract. For international students, it can take up to 12 months to obtain a Driver's Licence; therefore, it is to your advantage to come with a Driver's Licence from your home country if possible.

Diploma to Degree

Use your diploma to ladder into an applied science degree at Lakeland College in Alberta, an environmental science or environmental management degree at Royal Roads University in British Columbia or a technology degree at Memorial University in Newfoundland.

Career and Salary Information

Your Career

Jobs in environmental engineering technology can involve environmental monitoring and assessment, pollution control, site remediation and reclamation, environmental audits and impact assessments, construction and design, research, technical sales and support for waste management. You could work in an office or a field setting, as part of a team or independently. Potential employers include engineering firms, environmental consultants, utilities, municipalities, government agencies and non-governmental organizations.

Special Admission

Applicants who do not possess the academic qualifications for a program may be admitted if evidence of probable success can be established through a special admission assessment. Interested individuals should still apply. Applicants are automatically considered for special admission. However, some specific admission requirements may still need to be met. Refer to the ACCUPLACER© cut scores for this program below, and review additional details concerning Special Admission.

Admission Method

First Qualified/First Admitted

The First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA) process is used for the majority of Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs. When we determine that you meet the program's admission requirements, you will be offered admission based on the date you fully qualify for the program. The earlier you provide the appropriate documents and information that qualify you for admission to the next intake, the earlier you might begin your studies. Your application, once qualified, is always considered for the next intake. 

Applicants to programs with multiple intakes in an academic year remain in the application pool until the last intake for that academic year has begun. Programs using the FQFA process receive applications year round and maintain an application pool for each academic year. Qualified applicants who are not offered a seat must reapply for the next academic year. 

Sponsored programs or programs targeted to specific groups do not accept applications year round or maintain an application pool.

See Admission Processes for more information about this method of admission.
