    Course Summary

    Civil Engineering is all about designing, building and maintaining the man-made environments of cities, transportation networks and resource capture operations. It also deals with protecting and maintaining the natural environment against human overuse, and making sure the two worlds work together, rather than in conflict. 

    The University of New Brunswick has been teaching engineers since 1854, when it introduced the nation’s first engineering program. Their Civil Engineering BSc has produced the people who built the country’s bridges, introduced modern wired and wireless communications networks, and laid the foundations for cleaner and more efficient public utilities. The program will convey much more than technical skills. It will also teach you leadership, teamwork, and a creative yet practical approach to innovation. 

    This program allows you to specialise your degree pathway in one of six different ways. Specialisations include:

    • Construction Engineering
    • Water and Environmental Engineering
    • Geotechnical Engineering
    • Materials Engineering
    • Structural Engineering
    • Transportation 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.

    Learning And Teaching

    University of New Brunswick relies on many standard teaching methods to convey the content above. These typically include large formal lectures, interactive tutorials as well as seminar style classes. As UNB is a major research university, you will be able to contribute to these programs as you study.

    UNB’s Civil Engineering program also includes a great deal of laboratory and project time, as well as co-op and working placement opportunities.

    Career Possibilities

    A graduate of UNB’s BSc in Civil Engineering will be in a good place to continue their education at the MSc or MEng levels, or to take up a more specialised research degree. Alternatively, though, many graduates move directly into the workforce both in Canada and abroad. Some recent graduates have accepted very lucrative roles as civil or construction engineers, environmental engineers, geotechnical engineers, hydrotechnical engineers, mineral engineers, mining environmental consultants or transportation engineers.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a BSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have completed a Canadian secondary education including English, Chemistry, Physics and Maths, or the international equivalent.

    All classes are taught in English unless otherwise noted, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on the IELTS or another approved test.
