A gateway to the Pacific Rim, Vancouver is one of the best places to live and learn. The Department of Civil Engineering at UBC Vancouver is renowned for its dedication to world-class research and state-of-the art facilities; we are ranked No. 1 in Canada and 26th in the world by the 2015 QS World University Rankings. This status is in large part thanks to our graduate students and we continue to seek outstanding applicants to maintain and strengthen our contributions to society. At the graduate level we offer two course-based degrees, MEng and MEL, and two research-based degrees, MASc and PhD, in eight areas of specialization. Our programs have competitive tuition rates and partial tuition waivers, as well as comprehensive funding packages for MASc and PhD students. Information about the programs is available in the navigation bar to the left, and in the Graudate Student Handbook linked below. Additional information is available on the Graduate Admissions page.
