Discover unique learning and research opportunities at the School of Engineering on UBC's Okanagan campus.


The path to a Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) degree begins at the School of Engineering with Engineering One — a foundation year rooted in project-based team learning.

Year 1

The common first-year curriculum — Year One — lays engineering skill foundations. The curriculum emphasizes project-based learning, offering first-year students an opportunity to implement engineering design projects. First-year engineering design projects include 3-D printing, computer-aided design, and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), and the opportunity to implement the principles of engineering in a second-term design project.

Year 2

With a solid foundation, students then choose a specific program following their first year: Civil, Electrical, Manufacturing or Mechanical Engineering.

There are no quotas or caps on these programs at UBC Okanagan.

Focus on research at one of Canada’s leading project-based engineering schools. Through integrated and advanced project learning and interdisciplinary thinking in Civil, Electrical, Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering disciplines.

MASc and PhD degree programs require the support of a research (faculty) supervisor as well as meeting program-specific admission criteria.  MEng candidates are not require to contact a member of the faculty prior to applying.




    The undergraduate programs at UBC Okanagan’s School of Engineering are among 279 accredited programs (at 44 higher education institutions) across Canada reviewed by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.

    Accredited programs must ensure continual improvement of education and meet the high standards of the CEAB’s members.
