ENGINEERING

Engineering programs in Canada are some of the most popular for international students, and include a very wide variety of specializations. 4- and 5-year engineering degrees are offered by most Canadian universities leading to degrees with various names: Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Engineering, Bachelor of Engineering (BE or BEng), Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) or Bachelor of Engineering Technology (BET). Engineering is also one of the most popular fields for graduate study in Canada.

If you're looking for a shorter program, community colleges and technical institutes in Canada also offer a number of bachelor's degrees in engineering, as well as the Associate of Engineering, Associate of Engineering Science and Associate in Engineering Technology degrees. These degrees are often transferable towards a bachelor's degree at a Canadian university.

An engineering degree will usually be undertaken in one field of engineering, and some common engineering fields are aerospace, agricultural, architectural, biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental, geological, geosystems, industrial, manufacturing, materials, mechanical, mining/ mineral, nuclear, software and transportation engineering. The specialization is sometimes noted in the degree, for example BE (Aero) or BEng (Elec).

Most Canadian engineering programs are accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB), and graduates of accredited programs are eligible to become registered Professional Engineers (P.Eng.). Qualified engineers are needed all over the world, so build yourself a solid future starting with engineering programs in Canada!
