General information about the civil engineering discipline, the program, and admission to the program is given below. Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment. It is a broad field made up of several sub-disciplines such as environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydrotechnical engineering and structural engineering.
The courses needed to complete the program are listed here. The program has been designed so as to provide you with a broad knowledge base in civil engineering and in-depth knowledge in one or more civil engineering sub-disciplines; skills in areas such as design, problem analysis, leadership, teamwork and communication; and an understanding of the professional and ethical responsibilities of a professional engineer.
Admission to Civil Engineering occurs at the second year level, following completion of the general first year Engineering at UBC or transfer from another post-secondary program outside UBC Engineering. For details of the admissions process and to apply, see here. Prospective students should be aware that an enrolment limit may apply, and that, without the successful completion of ENGL or equivalent prior to entry, the program will require an additional year for completion.
All students are required to take the course CIVL Introduction to Civil Engineering in the first term following entry to the program. A Communication Skills Module of this course, commencing two weeks before the normal start of term, is mandatory for some students For further details, see here.

Hello there, thanks for starting the post. Do students with diplomas have advantage in terms of admission? There are two ways for students to be admitted to UBC Engineering. Direct High School 2. Transfer Student.
Because you mention trade diplomas, I assume you are part of the second group, transfer students. Even though a trades diploma may not have transferable credit, it will be used as a basis for admission. This means that your most recent 30 credits will be assessed. As for the averages that you mentioned, these would be closer to the expectations of high school students. For transfer students, you can see the recommended range at the same link if you scroll to the bottom.
If you are a high school student, then the link that Anna T posted will give you a realistic guideline. For those averages, Broad Based Admission has also been taken into consideration. Hope this clears things up for you. If you have more or any follow up questions, feel free to reply! Keep in mind it's skewed by the personal profile.

I had been leaning towards Queen's which I have been accepted to as well for over a year, but all things considered, I will likely be accepting my offer soon! UBC is my top choice; it'll be a bit of a transition from Ontario, but I know it's a great school with a lot of opportunities. I'm really hoping to get into the Science One program there!
Thanks so much!!! Good to know I'm not the only one a bit worried about moving so far — I just really hope that it'll be easy enough connecting with other students and making fast friends! Sorry for the late reply — totally didn't see this! I'm currently in grade 11 and I independently do research about my subject Physics!! I want to study Physics and Math in uni. I was wondering how were you able to do your research projects with UofT and UofS and get your research assistant position.
I've spoken to teachers at my school and they've said that there really isn't much for me to do and I'm finding it really hard to find opportunities so if you could tell me how you came about them it'd be greatly appreciated!!
I have no clue what my chances are for arts. My average is Talked about how I have been playing violin since I was 4 and have participated in orchestras, ensembles, solo performances and dedicate an hour or two per day, as well as I rock climb competitively and have been doing so for the past 5 years.
