Best of both

Maclean’s ranks UBC Engineering #2 in Canada and the UBC Sauder School of Business #1. When you recruit a UBC MEL graduate, you know you are hiring the best of both.

Save time & Cost

Hiring an engineer recruiter or recruitment agency can be expensive. We can connect you to quality candidates for free, and save you time and money.

Hire your next engineering leader.

Too often, organizations find technical people do not have the business knowledge to fully contribute to strategic decision-making or project management, and their business people do not have the technical and domain knowledge to lead teams and deliver results.

That’s where the UBC Master of Engineering Leadership (MEL) comes in.

The UBC MEL is a hybrid master’s degree designed to provide the best of both worlds: a degree for practising professionals to update their technical skills while gaining foundational business knowledge and leadership skills.

Engineering recruitment made easy.

When you recruit an engineer from the UBC MEL program, you’ll have access to a cohort of experienced engineering talent who can help you bridge the gap between engineering and leadership.

Practicing professionals who undertake the program must have a minimum of three years of professional experience. Over the one-year degree program, they take technical courses through UBC Faculty of Applied Science to acquire leading-edge knowledge in their field, and business classes through the UBC Sauder School of Business to gain foundational knowledge in the most relevant aspects of business and management.

Uniquely trans-disciplinary.

Currently, there is no other full-time graduate program in Canada that offers this unprecedented blend of industry specialization and globally-ranked, master’s-level business training.

Engineers from the program combine their industry experience with learnings from the degree to expertly help you lead teams, bridge communication gaps and direct complex projects that require detailed sector-specific engineering knowledge.

We’re educating your next leader. What are you waiting for?

Recruit engineers in these specialties:

The UBC MEL degree is designed for engineers and other technical professionals who want to deepen their skills in advanced materials manufacturing, clean energy, dependable software systems, high-performance buildings, integrated water management, naval architecture and marine engineering or urban systems.
