Engineers help prevent disease, reduce poverty and create solutions to protect people and our planet: engineers are humanitarians, innovators, visionaries, and entrepreneurs. Many engineers also use their degree to become doctors, lawyers, CEOs, and entrepreneurs.
UBC Engineering is committed to increasing diversity within their student body to better reflect the diverse society engineers serve. We hope you take this opportunity to explore the engineering options available at UBCO.
