UBC engineering

A photo of iliketurtles iliketurtles
I'm thinking of applying to UBC (it's far, nice campus, moderately large city) for their biological and chemical engineering program. Does anyone know how hard/reputable the program is? What are job prospects like, or even grad school? Also, admission averages? :)

Better get on it!
Only got till the 28th to apply.
I'm not sure about it's reputation and all that..
but I am from Vancouver.. and I know a LOT of people who are wanting to get into UBC Engineering and I know of a few people already in the program and they love it.
As for admission average, I would say at LEAST 90%.. It's a pretty competitive program.

Utsg is not even close ubc engineering is ranked 3rd in the country for engineering I got admitted into the program I guess it's competitive like Waterloo McGill u of t queens job prospects though not so good in my opinion there are limited spots for coop the school has excellent scholarship really good exchange program and I think it's ranked 2nd in Canada in research u of t being number one UTSG is a joke compared to ubc

from what my friend said and their online exam library, U of T is harder than UBC, but to be honest, employers don't give a crap about if your from U of T or UBC (Formula SAE sponsor's direct quote). They care about your achievement (extra curricular... formula sae *wink* *wink*) and abilities much over than your grades. Our supervisor said that he rather hire some one who knew how to use solid work , ansys and built stuff with a passing grade than a straight A who knew nothing apart from ... i dunno, read?
