“I’m interested in physics, science, and math, but I also like building things?” What’s unique about the Engineering Physics program at UBC?
Engineering Physics is a perfect fit for those who want rigorous training in math and science but who also want practical, hands-on engineering skills.  It’s a broad engineering degree – with core courses in electrical, mechanical, and software engineering – combined with a math and physics degree.  EngPhys is meant for those who want to work at the cutting edge of technology.  Our graduates are innovators, inventors, and entrepreneurs in new and emerging fields like quantum computing, biotech, robotics, and artificial intelligence.
  • We’re a small, tight-knit program with a strong and supportive culture.
  • We emphasize project-based learning and we have an intensive project course in each year – robotics (yr 2), machine learning (yr 3), and two senior capstone courses (yr 4&5).
  • We have have a dedicated “Project Lab” with three experienced staff who support our students and their projects full time.

From our students: Robots they made in second year.
