Master of Applied Science
UBC’s Department of Mining Engineering is known for being a small, close-knit family.
Our Department is exemplified by the dedication of the faculty and staff who provide a dynamic, hands-on learning experience for both undergraduate and graduate students.
In addition to teaching, the faculty work with graduate students and staff to undertake research in all aspects of mining in order to study and improve the industry for future generations. Gifts from alumni, corporations, foundations, students, parents and other friends assist the Keevil Institute in conducting leading edge research, providing outstanding education and contributing to social and economic development [more information].

Our faculty and staff will be working remotely and our offices and labs will be closed. Our office will reopen on March 30 and our labs will reopen on April 9 or until further notice. Please note that all research activity has been suspended until April 8. We regret that we may be unable to [...
According to the 2019 Times Higher Education list, UBC ranks number one globally for “taking urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.” With its various sustainability initiatives, it certainly appears as though there’s a lot going on with UBC as an administrative institution with...
From Thursday February 27 to Monday August 31 there will be an exhibit showcasing artwork that was created through the Tene Mehodihi program. Tene Mehodihi was founded by Nathan Skubovious (a recent graduate of the program), with strong multi-year support from the department and from the Faculty of...
Mining engineering students from the University of British Columbia’s (UBC) class of 2020 are looking to make a little bit of history this month. The school’s mine rescue club is hosting a student-led competition that will be the first of its kind in Canada. The Canadian Inaugural Mine Rescue...
The University of British Columbia was declared the winner at the 2020 Goodman Gold Challenge on February 8th! The team beat out rival squads from McGill University and the University of Manitoba to take home the win by providing an in-depth analysis of Marathan Gold’s Valentine Gold Project! They...
