    Course Summary

    A BEng from the University of Dalhousie could prepare you for a career, or for further study at the MEng level. You’ll graduate prepared to design the hyper efficient machines, greener manufacturing processes, longer lasting and more recyclable materials and mote sustainable resource extraction methods that will come to define the future. Just where you go with this program is up to you.

    The first two years of this degree are delivered in the small but close-knit Truro campus where you can benefit from smaller class sizes (typically in the range of 20-30 people). After learning the basics of engineering and finding your feet at Truro, you’ll take your last 2 years of courses at the Halifax campus.

    Dalhousie’s Engineering programs are both comprehensive and specialised. You’ll be able to choose between a focus in:

    • Mineral Resource Engineering
    • Mechanical Engineering
    • Materials Engineering
    • Industrial Engineering
    • Environmental Engineering
    • Computer Engineering
    • Chemical Engineering
    • Civil Engineering
    • Electrical Engineering

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
