Our School

Our School Banner 2


The School of Engineering (SoE), an integral part of the Faculty of Applied Science at UBC, was founded in response to a call from industry leaders and academics in the Okanagan. Today, the SoE offers three undergraduate programs in civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering and three levels of graduate programs (MEng, MASc, PhD) that continue to respond to the demands of local, national, and global communities.

The SoE comprises award-winning faculty and researchers, staff, and students, all engaged in a close-knit, inclusive learning environment with strong links to industry and government. At the undergraduate level, our common-core, design-from-the-start curriculum emphasizes interdisciplinary, project-based approaches to learning, and our final-year Capstone program provides opportunities to work directly with community stakeholders to apply skills learned in the lab and classroom. At the graduate level, the SoE focuses on advanced project learning, whether in professional upgrading (MEng) or world-class research (MASc and PhD).

It is an exciting time to be part of the SoE – we continue to grow, increasing in population, diversity, and programs of study. As we look ahead, we envision expanding our contributions to innovation in the Okanagan and beyond, further developing our international partnerships, and continuing to prepare our students to be highly skilled and responsible researchers and professionals.
