Students celebrate a design competition victory

Admission to engineering is competitive. Every year, we receive applications from more students than we can accommodate, which means we must restrict enrolment.

Applicants to UBC Engineering are evaluated on a broad range of criteria. And while we are looking for academically strong students, we also want to know if you possess additional attributes that will contribute to your success as a student.
