What are UBC Engineering Design Teams?
An Engineering Design Team is an approved extra-curricular group comprised of current UBC students who design (and potentially develop a prototype of) a device or product (e.g. a robot or a vehicle).
Students often participate in these activities with a common goal of gaining relevant design, competition, teamwork, and leadership experience. Teams often choose to enter a regional, national, or international competition with their device, to represent UBC Engineering and put their hard work to the test.
Official design teams must be approved by the Engineering Design Team Advisory Council.
About our Engineering Design Teams
At UBC, we have 34 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. We also strive to ensure the availability of facilities and equipment, improve competitiveness, and provide an environment in which student teams can innovate and maximize their learning potential in solving the world’s problems.
These teams have a range of unique projects and are open to students of all Engineering departments and other faculties!
To the media
The Engineering Design Teams at UBC are hard at work on some very interesting projects. Many teams will have a media package prepared, including video footage and photos. To find out more on collaborating, please see the Media page.
Thank you for supporting our Engineering Design Teams in one form or another. Your contributions aid students immensely in their personal and professional development. For potential sponsors, there are many benefits. For more information please see the Sponsors page.
