The Ivan Curry School of Engineering offers programs of study leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Applied Science and Bachelor of Engineering. The Bachelor of Applied Science degree generally requires three years of study and may be completed entirely on the Acadia campus. The Bachelor of Engineering degrees are delivered through cooperative arrangements with Dalhousie University and the University of New Brunswick and require a minimum of four years to complete. Students may choose to specialize in the disciplines of Civil, Mechanical, Industrial, Mining, Metallurgical, Biological, Electrical, Computer, Chemical, Forest, Geological and Geomatics engineering through these arrangements. The joint Engineering degree programs are fully accredited by the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers.
The Engineering degree programs are completed in two parts. The student normally spends, as a minimum, two years at Acadia before transferring either to Dal or UNB to complete the program. Upon completion of the Acadia portion of the program, the student is awarded our Certificate in Applied Science, which guarantees admission to the partner institution of choice with full transfer credit. The first year of the engineering program is common to all disciplines. Students are expected to select an engineering discipline as they enter their second year of study.
The Bachelor of Applied Science degree awarded by Acadia is not an accredited engineering degree, but offers students a very liberal framework through which to pursue studies in the Applied Sciences and Engineering. Our BASc students often complete the certificate for a particular engineering discipline as a subset of the courses needed for their degree, thereby keeping their options open for after graduation. The extra year of study at Acadia can be used to further develop studies in a particular area of interest or gain exposure to a broad spectrum of elective topics. Students pursuing combined BASc/CAS programs may choose to structure their programs so as to lighten their course load in the first year or delay discipline choice until the third year of study, or both.
The Certificate can also be completed as part of the four year Bachelor of Science degree at Acadia with various major areas of study. Students interested in this option are urged to contact both the School and the Science department involved to arrange an appropriate program of studies.
Students may elect to attend engineering schools other than Dalhousie or UNB after completing the certificate. In such cases, admission is individually considered.
