UNBC adds engineering degree
Students in northern B.C. will now be able to earn a master of applied science in engineering degree, which is the first of its kind to be offered in the north. UNBC is offering the program as a research-based degree and focuses on managing engineering challenges and needs specific to cold environments. This degree program expands UNBC’s total engineering student spaces by 30, with an additional 15 graduates per year. The 30-credit degree program builds on UNBC’s existing engineering degrees: Master of Engineering in Integrated Wood Design, and two bachelor of applied science (BASc) degrees - one in Civil Engineering and the other in Environmental Engineering. UNBC also offers a joint BASc degree in Environmental Engineering with the University of British Columbia.
