Surrounded by Vancouver’s natural splendour, nestled amongst the Cascade mountains on the south of British Columbia’s beautiful coastline UBC's campus is an idyllic backdrop for graduate studies. Electrical and Computer Engineering students can enjoy the most mild climate in Canada while living in culturally diverse Vancouver. A city often voted one of the most desirable cities to live in around the world.
UBC is a world-renowned university and is consistently ranked among the top 40 schools in the world. In 2011 the Times Higher Education List ranked UBC 38th of the top Engineering and Information Technology schools and 30th overall in the world. In the category of research income, volume and reputation UBC ranks 26th and 8th in terms of international mix.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department accounts for one-third of the engineering faculty at UBC. Graduate students are provided the opportunity to work with this world class faculty and conduct leading edge research in their field. Graduate students are given access to state of the art laboratories with an outstanding inventory of equipment. Supported by full-time faculty and staff, students are encouraged to push their own boundaries and explore new possibilities. The graduate programs are flexible enough to allow students to create their own educational goals - with faculty approval, of course.
