UBC offers four engineering graduate programs for students.

Master of Engineering Leadership (MEL)

The Master of Engineering Leadership (MEL)is a one-year professional degree programs for practicing professionals who want to excel in their careers, broaden their technical perspectives and gain new business and leadership skills. MEL students are eligible for scholarships based upon submitted program application.

Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)

The Master of Engineering is a non-thesis course-based (30 credits) professional program designed for engineers wishing to upgrade their training. The program is normally completed in 12 to 16 months of full-time study. The M.Eng. program is administered by the Faculty of Applied Science. M.Eng. students are not eligible for financial assistance although they may apply for Teaching Assistantships.

Master of Applied Science (M.A.Sc.)

The Master of Applied Science is a thesis-based (30 credits) research program designed for engineers wishing to pursue research. The program is normally completed in 24 months of full-time study. The M.A.Sc. program is administered by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. M.A.Sc. students are normally eligible for financial assistance from their thesis supervisors and may apply for Teaching Assistantships, graduate awards and scholarships.

Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)

The Doctor of Philosophy is a thesis-based research program designed for engineers wishing to pursue advanced original research. The program is normally completed in 48 months of full-time study. The Ph.D. program is administered by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. Ph.D. students are normally eligible for the Ph.D. Tuition Award for their first 4 years, financial assistance from their thesis supervisors and may apply for Teaching Assistantships, graduate awards and scholarships.
