    Engineer Your Day (Schedule)

    The UBC Engineering & Architecture Open House Program lets you ‘Engineer Your Day’ to make sure you don’t miss out on any activities like presentations, the academic booth fair, demonstrations, and more! 


    Engineering Tours

    This year we will be offering three types of tours: Lab Tours, Student Team Tours, and Student Experience Tours. 

    Lab Tours will show you one of our undergraduate labs or research labs. These will give more perspective about some of the research happening within UBC Engineering or what types of labs an undergraduate student might experience. Please read the description of the Lab Tour for more information about each lab.

    Student Team Tours consist of a presentation from one of our Student Design Teams sharing details about their team, their projects, and competitions. After the presentation the Student Team representative will take you on a guided tour of our Student Design Team booths. For students interested in joining a Design Team, hands on extracurricular experience, competing nationally and internationally or working on a team, this is a great introduction to our Student Design Teams!

    The Student Experience Tour is a mini campus tour highlighting some of the places our students frequent to study, eat, and have fun. You'll see some libraries, a residence dining hall, state of the art fitness centres, and more!

    Register for your tour here

    Guests will be restricted to a single tour per person as there is limited availability. Please select only one Lab Tour, one Student Team Tour, OR one Student Experience Tour and ensure you register yourself and anyone that may accompany you.


    Women in Engineering Lunch

    Are you a girl in Grades 10, 11, or 12? You are invited to our Women in Engineering Lunch where you can hear a panel of recent women engineering graduates and our current students share their experiences. You'll also have the opportunity to network with our current students and other prospective students.
