Environmental Engineering Graduates First Class

By Brian Lin

Seven students will share the distinction this spring of being Canadian firsts: they’re receiving a UBC-UNBC joint Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Environmental Engineering.

Established in September 2002, the program combines UNBC’s strength in environmental science and UBC’s engineering expertise to offer students a unique blend of training in environmentally friendly technologies that is growing in demand.

The graduates spent their first two years at the College of Science and Management at UNBC, followed by two years at UBC’s Dept. of Civil Engineering and Dept. of Chemical and Biological Engineering, before completing a final term at UNBC.

“Each student graduating this spring is already employed, and most received job offers before graduating,” says program co-director Prof. Sheldon Duff.  “This demand for graduates is very gratifying as we designed the program to provide a comprehensive set of skills to graduates.”
