Program Overview


The Environmental Applied Science Technology program teaches you scientific theory in classes such as environmental microbiology, soil science, air quality, environmental chemistry, environmental management, and site assessments. You will learn about climate change, groundwater contamination and flow, impacts of pollution, ecosystem health, waste management, and environmental sustainability.  You will take your love of the environment outdoors to apply these theories while working and sampling in rivers, streams, and various facilities. You will collect and analyze water, soil, and air samples and compare results from previous years to monitor environmental health. By graduation, you will be qualified to work as an environmental technician, or you may continue your education to earn a B.Sc. through one of the program’s degree pathways.

The Environmental Applied Science Technology program is accredited by the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB) of the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists (Technician level). CTAB accredited programs provide International Mobility rights under the International Engineering Alliance (IEA) through the Sydney and Dublin Accords.
