The School of Engineering is thrilled to announce its 2019 Student Ambassador Team. This group of enthusiastic current students from each program discipline help provide prospective and current students a personal and informative connection to UBC Okanagan Engineering.
The ambassadors represent UBC and the School of Engineering at outreach and community events while coordinating activities and workshops. Equally as important, the student ambassadors are providing mentorship to their peers both in person and through social media channels.
