    Course Summary

    Civil Engineering is one of the three Engineering degrees offered by UNBC, along with the Environmental Engineering program and the Environmental Engineering program offered jointly with UBC. It will see you gaining a firm technical and academic background, as well as the advances specialist and communication skills you will need no matter where our career takes you. 

    A student of Civil Engineering will command a strong awareness of environmental issues, sustainability and the other sensitivities practicing as a modern Civil Engineer requires. 

    In addition, you’ll have opportunities to engage in co-operative (experiential) education, earning real world experience in your field of specialty and beginning to build the professional contact network which you’ll need to thrive in this competitive field. 

    The University of Northern British Columbia’s Civil Engineering degree meets all accreditation guidelines published for the Canada Engineering Accreditation Board. Successfully earning your BASc ensures that you have all the qualifications requires to be licensed by that body as a Professional Engineer (P.Eng). 

    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.
