The Faculty of Applied Science offers a program leading to the Bachelor of Applied Science in Environmental Engineering (ENVL). Interested students are eligible to enter the ENVL program after completing the first year engineering program and should apply for the ENVL program during term 2 of the first year engineering program.
The Mission of the ENVL program is to develop engineers possessing a combined analytical and open mind-set, who contribute to the health of ecosystems and the provisioning of ecosystem services to people, by addressing complex, often ill-structured, problems associated with the quality of air, land, water and living systems. The program is grounded in strong engineering foundations, an ecosystem approach to environmental engineering problems, collaborative community-focused projects and a reciprocal active-learning environment created between students, stakeholders, and instructors.
Graduates of the UBC ENVL program will be uniquely qualified via training in both chemical, biological, and civil engineering to contribute to: a) the design of facilities, management systems, and information systems associated with ensuring clean air, water and healthy living systems; b) the performance of impact assessments (including regulatory, sustainability, environmental, social, and risk); c) sustainability planning and design; and d) environmental policy formulation.
The UBC Environmental Engineering differs from, and is not compatible with, the Joint UNBC/UBC Environmental Engineering program. For information about the Joint UNBC/UBC Environmental Engineering program, see:
Graduates from the UBC Environmental Engineering program will be eligible for Professional Engineering (P.Eng.) status in the field of their practice through EGBC.

Cooperative education experiential learning placements are an important option within ENVL program. Work terms take place during the Winter and Summer terms, following the standard APSC COOP schedule. Students should refer to the program website for details. Students unable to complete one or more co-op terms should consult with the program advisor.
