It is with great excitement that I share the attached memo from Dr. Marc Parlange, the Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science at UBC, confirming the Dean’s Office’s commitment to contributing the final $800,000 to allow the project to go to Board of Governors’ meeting in November. Should we receive Board III approval, construction should begin in early in the new year.
We would like to thank everyone who has dedicated their time to the Engineering Student Centre (ESC) project, and for their continued support with moving this project forward, including our alumni, faculty, staff and current students. We want to give special thanks to the following individuals who have been key contributors, planners, negotiators and designers for the ESC over the years:
- Amanda Li, BASc ’11
- Andrew Carne, BASc ’10
- Bowinn Ma, BASc ’08
- Dominic Tong, Engineering Physics Student
- Hans Seidemann, Integrated Engineering Student
- Ian Campbell, Electrical Engineering Student
- Lin Watt, BASc ’11
- Tagg Jefferson, BASc ’13
There are still plenty of opportunities for current students to get involved in the design of the ESC. If you would like to contribute, come to MCLD 418 on Friday, November 8th at 4:00pm.
We hope to hear from you! We are very excited that this project is so close to be realized, and we need help from all of you to give your input to see this project through to completion.

Yesterday, November 2 2013, the EUS hosted our annual UBC Engineering Competition. It was a tough all-day event with over 179 students in 7 different competitions.
We would like to thank everyone who came out to compete as well as our judges and chairs who spent their Saturday helping prepare our students for the Western Engineering Competition.
The winners from yesterdays event will continue on to represent UBC Engineering at the Western Engineering Competition 2014 at the University of Alberta in Edmonton in January.
It is our pleasure to announce the results of UBC Engineering Competition 2013 below:
