Dive into the details

You come with questions. We will help you reach for and find the answers.

You arrive eager to challenge the status quo and drive past limitations and boundaries. We collaborate to push even further.

Every program at UNB Engineering can support your passion and dreams.

Graduate programs

Create the conditions for new bonds and reactions to make materials and processes that enhance the lives of others. Chemical engineering gives you the tools and skills for a wide range of careers from developing new drugs and foods to overseeing manufacturing processes for health and safety.

Chemical engineering graduate programs

Focus your efforts below, on, or above ground with essential infrastructure and buildings to provide for people's needs. From sanitation sewers to skyscrapers, civil engineers are key to healthy, functioning human settlements, especially in a time of climate instability.

Civil engineering graduate programs

Design the things that make modern life function. From keeping the lights on to making cat toys dance, electrical engineers have an outsized role in our lives. Design the systems for space travel or the next generation mobile phone.

Electrical engineering graduate programs

Deep below the ocean or high up on a mountain top and every place in between, geospatial data gets people to where they need to be. From designing cities to designing the graphics to communicate the data, geomatics engineering offers a way to improve all lives.

Geodesy and geomatics engineering graduate programs

Design and create machines that make our world run smoothly. Boost advanced manufacturing processes with the latest technology. Apply your knowledge to different sectors from manufacturing to health care.

Mechanical Engineering graduate programs

Elevate your engineering prowess to the next level with training as an entrepreneur. Learn how to turn technical innovations into products ready for market. Understand the culture of business and how to be successful in it.

MTME graduate program

We ask tough questions

We are not looking for the easy way out or for half measures. We want real solutions to the challenges we face. We see those challenges as opportunities to be rigorously pursued. Innovation and design are key words that guide our work. Our faculty attract over $12 million annually in research funds from public councils, government organizations and industry partners.

Out of that we have more than 75 spin-off and startup companies with over $43 million in university-wide research funding annually. We know technology plus business savvy makes an impact on the health and wellbeing of people and the planet. Join us in our quest for engineering and technology that makes a positive impact on the world.

Research at UNB Engineering

Become part of our groundbreaking, pioneering, essential research. UNB Engineering has world-leading research groups, centres, and institutes. We invite you to find your research home in one of them.

Tackle the decarbonization of the energy grid and keep the lights on. Research at the CNER allows industry to create and maintain safe, operating, nuclear energy systems. Research includes corrosion prevention, chemistry control, and the development of SMR's. 

Smart grid technology is essential for a future with secure energy for all while addressing environmental, economic, social and political issues. From mitigation through decarbonization with renewables to cybersecurity, the grid is key.

Collaborate with industry to research critical issues for the grid including big data analytics, innovation, entrepreneurship, and the economics of it all. We lead through R&D, innovation, commercial partnerships, high-quality researchers, and state-of-the-art research facilities.

Join the dedicated team at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and research how to enable people in rehabilitation and mobility. Explore the possibilities of AI and customization. Use pattern recognition to improve performance and outcome measures.

We were the first graduate program in biomedical engineering in Canada. And we continue to lead and innovate. Make someone's life better with the application of your engineering skills and knowledge. 

Investigate issues around the production of pulp and paper. Work with industry on R&D projects to promote more efficient, effective, and clean technologies for pulp and paper making.

Explore how 3D printing can revolutionize marine manufacturing. No longer dependent on long down times, parts can be customized and produced as needed.

Methods, procedures, and workplace training systems bring additive manufacturing to this sector. We were the first in Canada to use 3D metal printing for certified marine parts. Be part of our continuing innovation.

Accelerate innovation in the construction sector through off-site technologies and practices.

Work with industry leaders to improve building practices and processes to improve productivity. Reduce waste, improve worker safety, and produce better buildings more affordably.

Focus on developing new tools and techniques for gathering, managing, processing, visualizing, and interpreting ocean mapping data.

We produce oceanographic and seabed maps ranging from advanced processing of bathymetric sensors and data in Canada's Arctic to the geographic and natural forces at work in the harbour in Saint John, NB.
