Engineering at Dal

Interested in studying Engineering at Dal?

The first two years of the Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) program at Dalhousie is made up of core classes that are common to all disciplines. At the end of the first two years - these core classes will earn you a Diploma of Engineering before you finish the rest of your program in your preferred discipline stream.

If you prefer to start your journey at Dal in a smaller campus environment, the Engineering Diploma program (your first two years) can be completed at Dalhousie's Truro campus. After you complete the diploma program - you will finish your BEng in Halifax.

Once you complete your first two years, you can choose to combine your academic program with co-operative education (co-op). Co-op provides a minimum of one year - depending on your discipline - of paid industry experience. 

You also have the option to combine either a Bachelor of Science or Arts with a Bachelor of Engineering. This option can be completed in five years or six depending on if you also choose the co-op option.
