Engineering and Architecture-Related Occupations

In New Brunswick, engineering is a profession with two regulated occupations, including professional engineers and engineering technologists/technicians.

Engineers design materials, structures, and systems by applying scientific knowledge and mathematics.

Engineering technologists and technicians

Certified engineering technologists typically come from an applied science or engineering background and have graduated from a certificate, diploma, or degree program.


Architects conceptualize, plan, and develop designs for the construction and renovation of commercial, institutional, and residential buildings. They are employed by architectural firms, private corporations, and governments, or they may be self-employed. (Source: Working in Canada)
