Looking for ways to get more out of your graduate experience at UBC? Here are some ways to get involved:


The UBC Mechanical Engineering Graduate Association (MEGA) aims to create a tight-knit community of peers for mechanical engineering graduate students. MEGA regularly hosts social events (hikes, games nights, coffee socials, etc) as well as the annual MEGA cruise party. The organization also represents mechanical engineering students in the UBC-wide Graduate Student Society (GSS). For more information, visit the MEGA website or join the MEGA Facebook group.

The UBC Graduate Student Society (GSS) represents the interests of all graduate students at UBC Vancouver. All students registered in the Faculty of Graduate and Post-Doctoral Studies are automatically members of the GSS. Every year, an Executive Committee responsible for the administration of the GSS is elected by graduate students. The GSS offers many ways to get involved with the graduate student community at UBC. For more information, visit the GSS website.

The UBC Engineering Mentoring Program matches a junior undergraduate student, senior undergraduate or graduate student, and an engineer from industry or academia together according to related discipline or interests. There are networking events for students and mentors throughout the academic year, which allow participants to build their professional networks and gain insight into the engineering profession. For more information, visit the UBC Engineering Mentoring Program website.

UBC Go Global offers many opportunities for students (both undergraduate and graduate) to study or do research abroad at one of 200+ partner universities. For more information, visit the Go Global website.
