Program Information

School: Concordia University
Faculty: Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science
Degree: Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study: Construction Engineering
Description: Imagine designing a building that can supply its own energy. 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 synergy between the thermal, structural, acoustic and energy systems of a building by applying the principles of civil, mechanical and electrical engineering.

Our 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. As a Co-op student, you will work for engineering firms where you may: produce AutoCAD drawings, prepare plans for electrical and ventilation systems, conduct energy audits of existing buildings, visit project sites to monitor progress, or conduct building inspections.
