Environmental and ecological problems are an increasing concern for all Canadians particularly in the resource-rich northern portion of British Columbia. The concerns are especially acute due to a primarily resource-based economy, which depends on forestry, mining, oil and gas, and fisheries. Further, the northern economy generates a significant portion of British Columbia’s primary wealth and feeds provincial economic growth. UNBC offers an Environmental Engineering degree that integrates basic science with modern engineering practices.

This Environmental Engineering and Civil Engineering degrees at the University of Northern British Columbia prepares graduates for a wide range of employment opportunities where the technical expertise and problem-solving skills of engineers are needed in conjunction with a strong awareness and understanding of environmental issues and problems.
