Building Engineering (BEng)

Bachelor of Engineering (BEng)
Offered by:
Department of Building, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science

Why study Building Engineering?

Imagine designing a building that can supply its own energy. That’s one of the key challenges that building engineers tackle every day. As a building engineer, you will find creative solutions to reduce energy consumption, help combat global warming and improve quality of life. You’ll create a synergy between the thermal, structural, acoustic and energy systems of a building by applying the principles of civil, mechanical and electrical engineering.

Concordia’s Building Engineering program is the only one of its kind in Canada. In state-of-the-art labs designed for understanding building science, acoustics and lighting, engineering materials and solar energy, you’ll get practical experience with the tools and equipment you will use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also:

  • Study the life cycle of enclosed built facilities (conception, planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance and rehabilitation)
  • Study the properties of building materials and building systems
  • Study HVAC systems, energy efficiency, thermal comfort and indoor air quality
  • Analyze a building’s structural properties and requirements

Our program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board and you’ll graduate eligible to become a registered professional engineer.

Program Details

A Bachelor of Engineering degree takes a minimum of four years (119 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.
