Engineering Design Teams

At UBC, we have 35 different Engineering Design Teams where students volunteer their time to work collaboratively on design projects and gain hands-on experience.

UBC supports existing teams, fosters the development of new ones, and encourages a wide range of collaboration with campus and external partners, helping them achieve their potential through adequate access to resources.

Why join an Engineering Design Team?

Joining a design team is a great way to have fun with like-minded peers as you work together towards a common goal.

Other benefits include:

  • Developing expertise in your field of study
  • Meeting industry professionals
  • Making new friends in your discipline
  • Apply skills learned in the classroom to real-world issues
