Green Bio-Products

Alumni Showcase: GBPR

Read about the successful graduates of the MEL in Green Bio-Products program, who gained the technical skills and business knowledge to increase their employment opportunities and advance their careers.

Students in this program came from across Canada and around the world to spend 12 months learning from renowned UBC experts and exploring the latest developments in the green bio-economy. They also learned the language of business, gaining fundamental insight into business strategy and leadership through courses offered by UBC Sauder’s Robert H. Lee Graduate School.

This unique interdisciplinary degree program enabled our graduates to move into new industries, take on positions of increased responsibility and confidently lead teams and complex projects.

In January 2020, the Green Bio-Products program will be replaced with Sustainable Process Engineering – an exciting new program that gives students the technical skills needed to develop the next generation of green products and processes and the entrepreneurial and management skills to transform these ideas into successful businesses.
