Bachelor of Applied Science in Chemical Engineering - Batch of 2024
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Best engineering and business program in Canada.
Tips: Students joining this college should know that it has high fee structure. Vibrant campus community and abundance of opportunities to grow. It is always rainy here but it gives a lot of exposure. High research output and supportive faculty. There is a huge campus. Good food options are there with high living cost. It is one of the best engineering and business program in Canada.
Likes (Public transportation): UBC is one of the major transit hubs of Vancouver making it accessible from any part around the greater Vancouver area. They are also building a direct rapid train network to connect UBC to the rest of the city which will make it even better for students and faculty who live off campus.
Dislikes (Value for money): Being a top university of not just Canada but globally, makes UBC a rather expensive university with 4 - 6% tuition fee increase year on year. However, this is compensated by the amount of exposure one gets here along with the vibrant campus community. Living expenses are generally high considering the cost of living in Vancouver.

Bachelor of Applied Science in Mining Engineering (Vancouver) - Batch of 2024
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Value for money! It gives memories, experience and opportunities.
Tips: This university will you give you lifetime of memories and skills that will help you in life, beyond your chosen career. You will find innumerable opportunities to explore your capabilities and use them in life. There are several clubs and design teams that you can join, which will really add up to your resume. There is also a good advantage of developing your network here since there are always new guest lecturers, workshops, seminars, etc. happening on campus.
Likes (Value for money): No doubt this university is costly for international students but it gives you exactly the university and adulting experience you need in life. There are innumerable opportunities for you to explore and develop your skills and it all depends on how you use them.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): Because of the opportunities available in my chosen field which is mining engineering, due to the electrification of this field. We are transitioning from more human force to mechanical approach to reduce our carbon footprints which will lead to lesser jobs in future in this sector.
