Bachelor of Applied Science - Materials Engineering

From the smallest nano-particles to massive mining challenges – materials engineering expertise is sought after in multiple industries worldwide. 

You'll start with the core material groups: metals, ceramics, polymers. and composites. By fourth year, you’ll be solving process-design problems and materials-selection solutions for diverse applications in transportation systems, fuel cells, supersonic aircraft, advanced computers, sports equipment, and biomedical devices.

Materials Engineering is concerned with the characterization, processing, and use in design of metallic and non-metallic materials. An optional Co-operative Education program is available that allows you to obtain twenty months of related experience in the last three years of your program.

A conditional admission allows a student to obtain a study permit (if necessary) and begin their studies in the UBC English Language Institute (ELI) or an equivalent institution approved by the Provost. Upon successful completion of the prescribed terms of study in the ELI English for Academic Purposes Program (or pre-approved, equivalent alternative), the student will proceed directly into the graduate degree program. 

Normally, a student must achieve a 75% overall assessment at the 600 level of the UBC ELI English for Academic Purposes Program (or equivalent assessment level in another approved program) to meet the terms of the Conditional Admission Program.
