Civil Engineering at Cape Breton University

One look at island life and it becomes clear: Cape Breton University is a special place that is focused and determined to make the world a better place. The passion for innovation and collaboration runs deep in history and fuels the future.

The engineering transfer program is offered at Cape Breton University on an associate basis with Dalhousie University. Cape Breton University is one of the few Associated Universities to offer the first two years of all six engineering disciplines. These include civil, environmental, electrical, industrial, mechanical and chemical engineering. Cape Breton University delivers the first two years of the four-year Bachelor of Engineering program, with the final two years delivered at Dalhousie University.

The first year of the program is common for all six discipline options. At the end of the first year, students must make a decision on a specialty. Application is made at this time to both Cape Breton University and Dalhousie for a seat in the particular discipline of choice.

During year two, students will be registered at both Cape Breton University and Dalhousie University. Years three and four will be completed at Dalhousie University.

Students can also combine a BSc in either chemistry or mathematics with the Engineering Diploma. This program requires a third year of study at Cape Breton University to complete the BSc, followed by two years at Dalhousie University to complete the BEng.
