Fred Kaiser Building, 2332 Main Mall, Vancouver
Interested in engineering or architecture? You and your family are invited to join us on Saturday, November 2. Meet with professors, staff and students to explore everything UBC Engineering and the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture has to offer.
There’ll be cool demonstrations, fascinating lab tours, and informative presentations. Talk to advisors, professors and current students about all of your options. Learn how applied science can make a world of difference. Bring your friends and family to explore – we suggest you plan to attend the whole day, as there are activities happening throughout the day.
By submitting your RSVP, you'll be notified when registration for the Engineering Tours open! The Women in Engineering Lunch registration is now open (see below).
Engineer Your Day
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! We are working on finalizing all details for 2019, but in the meantime you can view all activities we offered last year in 2018!
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!
RSVP above to be one of the first to find out about when the tour registration opens.
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.
Engineer Your Future
Indigenous students in Grades 8-12 and their parents and caregivers are invited to join our current UBC Engineering Indigenous students who will share their own experiences while guiding students through everything that the UBC Engineering & Architecture Open House has to offer.
School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA) Activities
Attend information sessions for our graduate and undergraduate programs. Learn how to put together a well-designed portfolio, discover what our faculty and students are working on, and tour our studio spaces. For further information, including a schedule of events, please visit our website.
