Bachelor of Environmental Studies (BES)

Gain the skills and expertise you need to excel in a career in the growing aviation or aerospace industries. 

Earn a three or four year Bachelor of Environmental Studies from one of Canada's top-ranked geography departments, where you'll learn how to use tools such as geographic information systems and remote sensing, interpret weather patterns, read multi-layer maps, understand the impact of tourism, and advocate for sustainable practices within the aviation industry.

Take advantage of the program’s flexibility and enroll in independent flight training near you during your studies or after graduation, or select the co-op program, and graduate with a prestigious Waterloo degree and up to 20 months of paid work experience, all before graduation. The choice is yours.

While no previous flying experience is required, transfer credits may be awarded to students with a Canadian Private Pilot License.
