Eng Phys is a highly interdisciplinary program designed to fulfill the needs of those driven by a passion for invention, scientific curiosity, and creativity. Typical students in Eng Phys are bright, innovative, have a strong sense of adventure and a desire to turn their ideas into real science and technology advances. Students in Engineering Physics obtain the equivalent of an honours physics degree plus an accredited engineering degree in one of four options: Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science or Mechatronic Science.

In addition, students may use elective courses to obtain specialized training in areas such as Biophysics, Bioengineering, Applied Math, Astronomy, Project Management, Earth and Ocean Sciences, Alternative Energy, Materials Engineering, and more. Students graduating from this program go on to industry engineering work, research, commerce, as well as graduate studies at top schools such as Stanford, MIT, CalTech, Harvard and others, all of whom recognize the strength of our program. Due to the breadth of their expertise, UBC Eng Phys alumni hold executive and founding roles in many of BC’s high tech companies.

UBC Engineering Physics is looking for talented and physics-motivated high school students to attend an orientation event where they can find out more about our program as well as career opportunities in Engineering Physics. We are looking for each school to nominate suitable Grade 11 and 12 students to attend.

There is no limit to each school’s nomination, but we encourage students to register early as space is limited. Parents and teachers are welcome to attend.
