    Civil Engineering is a broad engineering discipline with a variety of unique and interesting sub-disciplines. A gateway to the Pacific Rim, Vancouver British Columbia is one of the best places to live and learn. Ranked in the World’s Top 40 Universities by Shanghai Jiao Tong University Institute of Higher Education and 38th by Engineering and Information Technology schools, The Department of Civil Engineering at UBC is renowned for its dedication to world-class research and state-of-the art facilities.

    The Masters of Engineering (M.Eng.) program is suited to students who wish to pursue a graduate degree in a non-thesis based research program.

    The M.Eng. Program requires completion of at least 30 credits of coursework beyond the Bachelor’s degree level. Students are required to obtain approval of their course selection from their Specialty Advisor.

    Canada requirements for international students

    Canada is now the most educated country in the world, according to a recent report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. Most of all, there are a lot of programs for international students. 

    The universities of Canada don't use a centralized system of undergraduate application so the students have to apply separately for each institution they want to attend. However, the most general procedures and requirements to get admission in Canada are: an application form, an official high school transcript or university transcript, CV which present your educational achievements, work or volonteer experience, and a letter of intent (LOI) that demonstrate personal and professional goals of the student and explains the interest of the applicant. 

    IELTS is most widely recognized and accepted English proficiency test in Canada. However, some universities accept TOEFL as an English test requirement. So you'll need to contact the university for the information about the test you have to provide and the score that you must obtain. 

    Program requirements

    Normally, applicants for a master's degree program must hold the academic equivalent of a four-year bachelor's degree from UBC including one of the following:A minimum overall average in the B+ range (76% at UBC) in third- and fourth-year courses.Academic standing with at least 12 credits of third- or fourth-year courses in the A grade range (80% or higher at UBC) in the field of study. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 7 TOEFL paper-based test score : 600 TOEFL iBT® test: 100


    The program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) and thus meets the academic requirements needed to attain the “Professional Engineer” (P.Eng.) designation in Canada. Graduates who wish to become specialized engineering consultants in one of the subdisciplines usually return to complete a Master’s degree.
