    Course Summary

    Engineers have had a hand in designing, implementing, modifying and / or building nearly every aspect of the modern world. The University of British Columbia’s MEng program prepares you to become one of the engineers who will work to define, improve and construct the world of tomorrow. 

    Depending on your interests, you can pursue an MEng in one of four specialisations – Mechanical Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering.  

    • Mechanical Engineers design, maintain and construct mechanical systems of all kinds. That means applying materials science, mathematics and physics to create new machines and processes. 
    • Manufacturing Engineers develop new manufacturing processes. That means creating new tools, machinery and equipment in order to make new advances into actual products. 
    • Electrical Engineers work to apply the principles of electromagnetism, electricity and electronics. They create new ways to create, use and modify power and information systems. 
    • Civil Engineers create and design the ‘built environment’, and especially the infrastructure of modern life – roads, bridges, water systems and buildings.  

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    • Facility for Environmental and Biological Imaging

    Career Possibilities

    The engineering profession depends heavily on licensing organisations to ensure that graduates have the necessary skills and understanding to practice safely. This program is specifically designed to prepare you to qualify for membership in the APEGBC, the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia. As a member of the APEGBC, you’ll gain more than just the ability to work in your field. You’ll have access to their own employment resources and professional development events. 

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 2 year MSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have completed a BSc in Engineering or a related field, with a minimum GPA of B+.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
