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 25th in the world by the 2021 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 research-based degrees, the MASc and PhD, in nine areas of specialization, and the course-based MEng degree in six areas of specialization.

Our programs have competitive tuition rates and partial tuition waivers, as well as comprehensive funding packages for MASc and PhD students.
