‚ÄčUNBC University of Northern BC‚Äč

There‚Äôs never been a better time for students to apply to Engineering at UNBC.


In 2019, UNBC expanded its School of Engineering to offer both Environmental Engineering and Civil Engineering taught entirely at our Prince George campus. Both new 4-year degrees complement the existing 4.5-year joint Environmental Engineering degree delivered with UBC. This opened up another 90 Engineering seats in Northern British Columbia.


We invite you and your students to an online information session with UNBC‚Äôs School of Engineering and Student Recruitment to cover the distinct features of each Engineering degree, how to apply for admission and awards, and the many exciting career opportunities that await our graduates.
