Admission Requirements

Students may enter IGEN from first-year UBC Engineering, by transferring from a first-year Science program or through an engineering transfer program at a recognized community college.


Applicants with more than 24 credits of transfer credit in first-year engineering may be eligible for direct transfer into IGEN. Students entering from Science may lack certain courses, which can be made up within the program schedule. Please consult Engineering Student Services for assistance in such cases.


Space limitations restrict admission to 50-60 students. The minimum average grade for entry depends on the grades of the entire group of applicants in a given year.
