Following its most recent program performance review, New Brunswick Community College (NBCC) has announced changes to its program offerings for the 2021-2022 academic year.
“To ensure that NBCC continues to provide the maximum return on investment to students and taxpayers, we are committed to providing quality, relevant programming that meets the needs of learners and employers,” said Ann Drennan, Vice President Academic and Research. “Our review of confirmed admissions, historic enrolment trends, labour market demand, and industry needs informs our program decisions.”
Based on its most recent review, NBCC has decided to suspend the Steel Fabrication program at the Saint John Campus. This program was also suspended in 2020—2021. The College will also discontinue the Bricklaying program at the Woodstock Campus, which has experienced historic enrolment challenges.
There is no impact to current students as a result of these changes. NBCC’s recruitment team will be reached out to applicants of these programs to help them identify other programs with available seats, so they can continue their plans to pursue post-secondary education at NBCC.
At the same time, NBCC is expanding its offerings by introducing several new programs next academic year, including Client Services and Sales (Moncton); Supply Chain Management and Logistics (Moncton), Information Technology: Business and Advanced Analytics (Saint John), and Skilled Trades Techniques (St. Andrews and Woodstock).
The College is also adding additional cohorts in a number of programs, including: Educational Assistant (Moncton and Woodstock), Information Technology: Business Analysis (Saint John), Business Administration: Management (Fredericton and Moncton), and Information Technology: Network Administration (Saint John).
Seat capacity is also being added to several programs, including: Business Administration: Marketing (Fredericton), Human Resources Management (Moncton and Saint John), Information Technology: Business Analysis (Moncton), and Information Technology: Programmer Analyst (Saint John).
With six campuses across New Brunswick, NBCC contributes to New Brunswick’s social and economic prosperity by supporting the aspirations of individual learners, seizing the opportunities of the labour market, and collaboratively solving the challenges of communities and industry. In addition to more than 90 certificate and diploma programs, NBCC also provides specialized and customized training to meet the needs of specific sectors and communities.
