Academic Advising

As an engineering student you have a dedicated team of professionals to support you along your journey. Our Departments, Programs, and Engineering Student Services (ESS) team are able to assist you with academic advising, course selection, registration, transfer credits, and much more.

Prior to booking an academic advising appointment we recommend:

  • Review the UBC Academic Calendar – The Academic Calendar is a comprehensive guide to all programs, courses, services, and academic policies at UBC
  • Search this website – We expect you to have done some research and preparation before visiting our offices. Resourcefulness is an important skill to develop and hone during your university years!
