The four-year Bachelor of Building Science Honours Degree program is designed to give you a broad knowledge base related to building environments. It covers all facets of building design, construction, human comfort and sustainability. It is Canada's only Bachelor of Building Science program.

If you have a recognized Diploma in Architectural Technician, Construction Engineering Technician, or Advanced Diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology you may be eligible to enter into the second year of the program with advanced academic standing. See Application/Admission Information for details.

The small class sizes of the program allow you and your peers to form tight-knit working groups and build the effective communication skills necessary to succeed in the industry. You spend approximately one third of your time working in the labs, developing your skills. You also have the opportunity to gain industry experience from site visits, professors who are actively working in the field and two mandatory cooperative education (co-op) work terms.
