Dependable Software Systems
Master of Engineering Leadership
The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department accounts for one-third of the engineering faculty at UBC. Graduate students are provided the opportunity to work with this world class faculty and conduct leading edge research in their field. Graduate students are given access to state of the art laboratories with an outstanding inventory of equipment. Supported by full-time faculty and staff, students are encouraged to push their own boundaries and explore new possibilities. The graduate programs are flexible enough to allow students to create their own educational goals - with faculty approval, of course.
