Undergraduate programs

Prepare for your career in engineering

Do you want to develop renewable energy systems or communications technology? Make life easier through design and innovation?

An engineering degree from the University of New Brunswick will prepare you for a career in growing fields like healthcare, biotechnology, transportation, renewable energy, aerospace and environmental management.

Learn in some of the best undergraduate labs in the country while gaining hands-on skills that make our students stand out above the rest. Programs like co-op and study abroad ensure that you have every opportunity to succeed in any of our undergraduate programs.

Undergraduate programs

Become an entrepreneur

Our Technology, Management and Entrepreneurship (TME) program gives students essential business, innovation and entrepreneurial skills for careers in engineering. Students work with clients to prepare a presentation at various stages, then pitch and explain their product, design or idea.

Startups from the TME Summer Institute include Breeze Bird, a cutting-edge drone prototype that can release a life buoy to anyone in distress while swimming, and Wear Your Label, a clothing company that advocates for mental health.

Earn while you learn

You can travel while you learn with UNB’s study abroad programs, or work for industry-leading companies. UNB’s co-op program allows you to prepare for a career in engineering by working for Canadian and European companies for terms of four, eight, 12 or 16 months.

Solve real-world problems

At UNB you will learn how to tackle complex industry problems in the classroom and put them to the test at the annual design symposium. Local governments, companies, and non-profit organizations sponsor a large number of the design projects, allowing you to get hands-on experience in solving real-world design problems and challenges.

Our students have found ways to recycle industry heat waste to warm a neighbouring school and developed an interactive map to determine best locations for low-income housing.
