Health Requirements


Studying Civil Engineering Technology at St. Lawrence College opened many doors for me right from the beginning of my studies. The technical, social and analytical skills that are developed throughout the 3 years of studies provided me with the ability to work in a variety of positions of my choosing, all unique in their own way. From the beginning of my studies at SLC, I was able to secure work in the civil engineering field with a civil consultant as a summer student and as a full time employee upon graduation.  Working for them exposed me to many different aspects of civil engineering, from initial surveys, to design of projects, to executing the contract. Having built on my skills from SLC, I was hired as a field engineer with a large scale contractor building a state of the art medical facility. Without the skills developed years earlier at SLC I would not have been able to secure a job of this nature, excel and be a contributing team member on the project. I thoroughly enjoy what I do on a daily basis, being able to see progress and knowing that I was able to contribute is very rewarding. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is interested in the civil engineering or construction field. The doors that are opened through the program are endless if you choose to explore them.
