    Testimonials

    After completing my first year of studies at Humber College (Civil Engineering Technology) in 2012, I felt like I needed to make a change in my life. That same year I decided to move from Toronto to Kingston where I continued my last two years of studies at St. Lawrence College. I had no idea what to expect, but from the first moment I walked into the College, I knew that I had made the right decision. I was greeted with nothing but energy and enthusiasm and I was able to transfer all my credits, and graduate in two years. The professors and the program itself offer so many opportunities for the students to excel and succeed, in both their academic and professional roles. At St. Lawrence College students are a priority and the staff go over and above to show their commitment. This includes, but is not limited to staying after hours to answer questions and maintaining communication with students during the weekends or Holidays. I believe it is a privilege to have been able to attend this school and I am glad I made that decision.

    Civil Engineering is a unique field. There are plenty of job opportunities and a variety of exciting areas of work from drafting and design to the field and lab. What I like best is you are able to see the product of your work and really feel like you’re contributing.

    Since graduating from St. Lawrence College, I have been able to experience two distinct fields of engineering, road construction and structural. I am currently working as a Field Engineer for EllisDon and that was made possible only due to hard work, determination, and through the support of the program faculty at St. Lawrence College. If I had one word of advice for students graduating in the upcoming years, it would be to work hard and be determined to reach all your goals, because St. Lawrence College really opens the door for bright future!
