New Brunswick Community College offers more than 90 diploma, certificate, trades and apprenticeship, university transfer and academic upgrading programs in a wide range of areas. Its diverse roster includes carpentry, industrial mechanics, aquaculture, and respiratory therapy. The college has six campuses, in Fredericton, Miramichi, Moncton, Saint John, St. Andrews and Woodstock, with Indigenous student gathering centres at four of those campuses.

The college offers a variety of post-graduate programs to complement a university degree or college diploma. These courses focus on topics including cybersecurity, international business management and human resources.

The college initiated its applied research program just four years ago, and in that time has engaged students in research projects focused on 3D printing and drone technology. Most of the research focuses on information and mobile technology, but other projects considered energy efficiency, advanced welding, teaching and social innovation.

NBCC also operates the Robertson Institute for Community Leadership, which encourages students to develop interpersonal and problem-solving skills through volunteer opportunities. Participants can earn a community leadership certification by taking an online course and participating in college-wide service days.
