Off-site Construction Research Centre

A spirit of partnered innovation at UNB

UNB drives the development of regional and national applied engineering research centres in conjunction with private-sector partners such as:

  • Cisco Systems
  • Emera
  • Google
  • IBM
  • Irving Oil
  • J.D. Irving, Limited
  • Lockheed Martin
  • NASA
  • NB Power
  • OSCO Construction
  • Siemens Canada

UNB has a vision to build even more capacity in engineering, doubling the faculty’s research output, significantly increasing the number of research centres and growing the graduate student population. This is underway in all UNB’s engineering departments, including civil.

Civil engineering faculty members are recognized nationally and internationally for their expertise.

They excel in the core areas of civil engineering — construction, materials, structural, and transportation — and have the ability to leverage UNB expertise in related areas, such as:

  • manufacturing
  • advanced materials
  • optimization
  • sensors
  • data and spatial planning
  • worker impacts
  • contract law

UNB has excellent relationships with researchers in universities all over the world and can draw on those relationships to obtain expertise on specific issues.
