Research

Seventy per cent of all university research in New Brunswick is conducted at the University of New Brunswick (UNB). There are many opportunities for students to engage in research with faculty members, receive funding for their pursuits, and continue their research and education at UNB to advance their academic studies. A number of interdisciplinary research programs exist through which faculty members and students from various Departments collaborate to investigate problems of mutual interest. Active research units include the Canadian Research Institute for Social Policy, Canadian Rivers Institute, NB Institute for Research Data and Training,  Urban & Community Studies Institute, Centre for Coastal Studies and Aquaculture, Centre for Nuclear Energy Research, Canadian Institute for Cybersecurity, Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society, Information Technology Centre, Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Muriel McQueen Fergusson Centre for Family Violence Research, and the Wood Science and Technology Centre, to name a few. The Office of Research Services (ORS), within the Office of the Vice-President (Research), assists faculty in obtaining and administering financial support for their research, promotes UNB research, and facilitates the protection of intellectual property, the transfer of knowledge, and the commercialization of technology.
