The Undergraduate Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering (ECE) programs commence in second year after students have met the requirements of first-year engineering. Students interested in the Biomedical Engineering Option should apply at the end of First Year Engineering.
How do I apply to be an ECE undergraduate student?
Those interested in a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering apply directly into the Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) program, where during the first year students gain a broad understanding of engineering principles. If you are applying to UBC as a first year student, visit the following link on how to apply to UBC for first-year engineering: https://engineering.ubc.ca/admissions/undergraduate/how-to-apply
In second year, after students have met the requirements of first-year engineering, students select their program of choice to decide between Electrical or Computer Engineering (as well as a Biomedical option), and must submit the Faculty of Applied Science Second Year Placement Form. All students need to complete this form no matter what program and option they are choosing.
