Overview

University of Northern British Columbia's Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.) in Environmental Engineering features all aspects of environmental engineering with a focus on sustainable development, wastewater management, and remediation and reclamation of resource extraction sites.

In second year, a number of courses are common in all of the engineering degrees but program requirements start to differentiate between the Civil and Environmental Engineering degrees. In the remaining years, some of the courses are common to both programs while each degree develops the in-depth knowledge to allow students to qualify within their discipline upon graduation. The final year exposes students to practical engineering problems.

Job Opportunities

Environmental Engineering graduates are critical to the growing northern and Canadian economy and will be well suited to fill vacant and new positions. The need to replace retiring engineers as they exit the workforce is growing, as the average age of civil engineers in B.C. is 50 years old, greater than in any other province. Engineers Canada projects an average of 667 job openings per year in British Columbia from 2015-2019 and continued high demand for the next decade.
