Four-year bachelor degree

Gain the skills needed to succeed in a world of climate change

Our four-year degree in environmental engineering at the University of New Brunswick Saint John campus has been designed to prepare you for a future defined by climate change. Through the first four-year engineering degree offered on the Saint John campus, you will learn how to develop innovative ideas and sustainable practices.

You will learn about water, soil and air pollution problems, and develop technical solutions in response to these challenges in a manner that adheres to government regulation while also addressing economic and social concerns.

Upon graduation, you will be prepared to serve the community, government and industry leaders by ensuring society is equipped to face the climate challenges of the future.

Program details

This program is tailored to provide you with the knowledge and skills required to contribute to societal progress while respecting the need for sustainable practices and ecological protections. In your first year, you will take a common selection of courses to develop a core foundation in engineering.

You will gain an in-depth understanding of the intersections between industry and the environment to prepare you for unique and challenging careers in pulp and paper, water management, manufacturing, and more.

You will complete at least 160 credit hours in engineering and science to fulfill the program requirements and to meet the educational requirements for registration as a Professional Engineer.

By the end of the degree, you will be able to assess the impact of engineering solutions in a global, environmental, economic, and societal context. With these skills, you will be capable of developing innovative solutions to the analytic and creative challenges presented by climate change.
