Welcome to CETT

At the Consortium for Engineered Trenchless Technologies (CETT), we are dedicated to advancing the design and application of trenchless technology in Canada and across the globe.

Located in Edmonton, Alberta, we have privileged access to trenchless pioneers and state-of-the-art facilities. We collaborate with our industry partners to address the most pressing challenges in the field today. The unique approach of bringing academia and industry together is based on the understanding that, by working collectively, we can:

  • Zero in on today's trenchless construction challenges
  • Leverage resources to expand research and innovation
  • Widen our impact on the trenchless construction industry
  • Offer an exceptional educational experience

Our students perform research on-site and in real time, thereby laying the foundation for true innovation and excellence in education.
