The Environmental Engineering program is a four and one-half year (nine semester) joint degree between the UBC and the University of Northern British Columbia. The program starts with a two-year foundation in mathematics and the basic sciences from the College of Science and Management of the University of Northern British Columbia. In the third and fourth years, the program provides a thorough education and training in engineering fundamentals, engineering analysis and engineering design, largely through courses in Civil Engineering and Chemical and Biological Engineering at UBC. The final term at UNBC will expose students to practical environmental engineering problems.
The Environmental Engineering program is a joint program under the jurisdiction of the Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science at UBC and the Dean of the College of Science and Management at the University of Northern British Columbia. The program is administered by a joint board of study.
The program has been developed to satisfy Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) requirements for accreditation of engineering programs.
There is a Co-operative Education option (Co-op) where students normally take five work semesters in addition to the nine academic semesters. Accounting for summer work terms, this option results in a total duration of five and one-half years.
