Prospective Students

Are you interested in getting involved in extracurricular activities?  Looking for real world design, competition, team, and leadership experience?  This is your chance to get to know the 26 Engineering Design Teams at UBC who work on various projects such as human powered submarines, Formula race cars, autonomous robots, steel bridges, space satellites, concrete toboggans, and fuel efficient cars!

These teams recruit students from various departments in engineering as well as other faculties such as commerce, business and arts. Previous experience is not always required; this is the opportunity for you to learn and develop skills to become true experts in your field of study.  Check out all of the teams here, or you can contact them through the form below.


How do I meet the teams

Every September, there are 2 major opportunities to explore and visit the teams. On the first day of school, where all teams setup a booth on Imagine Day, right outside of the Engineering Hub (KAISER) and during Engineering Week E^0, where the design teams host a midday open house for students to learn about the teams. If you’re considering joining a team, these are perfect opportunities to learn about the teams, and are also the major recruiting points. Keep an eye out for Imagine day and the Design Teams Open House hosted by the EUS.

If you are not sure which team to join, feel free to email the Design Team Coordinator at for clarification on what some of the teams do.
