As one of the most beautiful places anywhere, British Columbia is an ideal location to pursue an Environmental Engineering degree.

You’ll learn how to make a difference to air, land, water and living systems in this high-demand profession. Industries like pulp and paper, agriculture, fisheries, oil and gas, forestry and mining all rely on the skills of environmental engineers to lower their footprint, develop clean-energy technologies and minimize pollution.

UBC’s Environmental Engineering program is the only one of its kind in Western Canada and is jointly offered between the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) and UBC, in a four-and-a-half-year format.

Our curriculum features green engineering, waste-water and air pollution control technologies, geo- and mining environmental engineering, fluid dynamics and industrial process design.
