Confederation College is a provincially financed institute of applied arts and technology that is situated in Ontario, Canada. It was formed in 1967, while Ontario's college system was expanding. It is Northwestern Ontario's only public institution and spans a region of around 550,000 square kilometers. As it assists in establishing policies for Indigenous learning in the post-secondary education sector, it has been recognized as an Indigenous Education Leader. It provides its Indigenous students with programs, supports, and services. The college's main campus, Thunder Bay Campus, is situated on 130 acres of park-like land in Thunder Bay, Ontario. There are lovely gardens, a river, and a maze of walking routes there. The College's School of Aviation and the offices of the Student Union are located there. Additionally, there are eight regional campuses of the Confederation College of Canada, which are situated in the cities of Dryden, Marathon, Sioux Lookout, Fort Frances, Kenora, Red Lake, Geraldton, and Wawa. These university campuses provide a variety of programs in the fields of business, engineering, health, and other subjects.
Around 58 full-time programs, part-time credit and non-credit classes, pre-employment and skills training programs, speciality programs for business and industry, apprenticeship programs, and cooperative/workplace training programs are all available through the institution. Over 1,450 international students from more than 25 countries are among the 6,500 full- and part-time students who receive great education and training at the college each year on average. A sizable portion of the university's student body is made up of native and international students. The college also offers financial bursaries, awards, and scholarships to help students with the expense of their study.
Confederation College has a remarkable alumni network that further adds to its rising popularity. It has proved conducive to launching the dreams of many notable personalities. Some of the well-known names include Glenn Schiller (host of TSN's That's Hockey 2Nite), Trent Opaloch (director of photography, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, District 9) and Georjann Morriseau (former chief, Fort William First Nation).
You will learn about the design, construction, and operation of water, soil, geomatics, roads, trains, bridges, and buildings after completing our two-year curriculum. Because of the small class sizes at Confederation College, you will have plenty of opportunity to practice with cutting-edge technology like Computer-Aided-Drafting (CAD), project scheduling software, and surveying. The Civil Engineering Technician program will equip you with the skills you need to succeed if you have strong arithmetic abilities, a logical mind, and the passion to improve the world.
