UBC Environmental Engineering (ENVL) has achieved the maximum allowable accreditation period for a new program by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB). The first accreditation period will be for three years for the four-year program at the UBC Vancouver campus, with regular renewal procedures planned to maintain program accreditation for the foreseeable future.

On May 31, the class of 2023 became the first to graduate from the program, marking the beginning of a new chapter for both the program and graduates. These graduates now possess the tools and knowledge necessary to have a rewarding career as stewards of this planet.

UBC Environmental Engineering continues to provide a world-class degree as a result of a strong partnership between the departments of Chemical & Biological Engineering and Civil Engineering. The program aims to provide an outstanding educational experience that equips students with the knowledge, skills, and ethical principles needed to tackle the complex environmental challenges of our time.
