The Master of Engineering Leadership (MEL) in High Performance Buildings is an intensive one-year degree program for engineers and architects who want to make a difference in the building sector. Read more

The Master of Engineering Leadership (MEL) in High Performance Buildings is an intensive one-year degree program for engineers and architects who want to make a difference in the building sector. You’ll graduate from this program with a strong technical foundation in energy systems design modelling, equipping you to be a technical leader in the integrated design, construction and maintenance of green building energy systems. This technical foundation is balanced by courses in leadership and business, giving you a powerful skillset for overseeing the design of green buildings, from the initial planning stages through to implementation and operation.

The project-based curriculum has three primary areas of focus: architectural courses on green building design and regenerative development; engineering courses on energy modelling and design, and two interdisciplinary capstone projects where you will work with clients to develop real-world solutions to their design challenges. While 60 per cent of your classes will focus on your technical specialization, the remaining 40 per cent are leadership development courses that will enhance your business, communication and people skills. Delivery of the management and leadership courses are in partnership with UBC's Sauder School of Business.

Graduates of this program will have the technical and leadership skills to improve the energy performance of existing buildings and design integrated high-performance energy systems for new buildings.

What Makes The Program Unique?

The MEL in High Performance Building degree was developed in close collaboration with industry partners, who spoke to us of the high demand for high-performance building experts. Government and industry employers are seeking professionals who have the creative and visionary skills to develop the processes and systems that can lead to lasting change, and who have the cross-functional technical and business skills to propose innovative solutions, manage teams and direct projects.

To complement your academic studies, professional development workshops, delivered by industry leaders, are offered throughout the year-long program. These extra-curricular sessions cover a range of topics such as:

-Leadership fundamentals

-Giving and receiving feedback

-Learning how to deliver a successful pitch

-Effective presenting

The workshops also provide opportunities to network with professionals from a wide range of industries, UBC faculty and students in the MEL and MHLP programs.

Career Options

Energy use in buildings is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, making it a high priority to design more energy-efficient buildings and retrofit existing buildings. This is a growing sector, with opportunities in consulting, construction, manufacturing and government. With governments at all levels increasing the standards for energy conservation, there is a need for professionals who can take leadership in designing the integrated high-performing energy systems in our built environment. Examples of typical graduate job roles include Engineering consultant, LEED professional, city or municipal planner, code and bylaw developer, project manager in architectural & engineering firms, building energy auditor and energy manager.

The Master of Advanced Studies in Architecture (MASA) is a post-professional research degree offered in a two-year curriculum. Students work in independent design or research-based studies in collaboration with faculty members engaged in certain research themes. This immersive program is for those who wish to synthesize existing knowledge in architecture and progress contemporary concepts in the field. Within the wider University community, students engage themselves in a focused research environment enriched by resources and support from related disciplines such as community and regional planning, civil engineering, geography, and art history, visual and theory.
The MASA program is intended for qualified applicants with a previous professional degree and a capacity for independent research. The main criterion for admissions include a comprehensive proposal for their research and prior consultation with individual faculty members to discuss the applicant's ambitions and research topics. In due course, successful applicants will select a primary faculty member as their Thesis Committee Chair and a supervisory committee will be established.

Research

Usually by the end of the two terms of study, and in consultation with their faculty mentor, MASA students create their thesis proposal. The proposal will describe, in detail, the thesis research and methodology. Their research should be aligned with their faculty supervisor's work.
When the proposal is accepted by their supervisory committee, the student may begin work on the MASA thesis.

The field of planning practice (encompassing urban, community and regional planning, and related sub-specializations) has long been recognized as a professional field in Canada, as elsewhere in the world. Read more

General Information

The field of planning practice (encompassing urban, community and regional planning, and related sub-specializations) has long been recognized as a professional field in Canada, as elsewhere in the world. Founded by Dr. H.P. Oberlander in 1951, the School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP) is one of the oldest planning schools in Canada. Its Vision is “Sustainability through the Democratization of Planning,” and in achieving that Vision, SCARP's Mission is “to advance the transition to sustainability through excellence in integrated policy and planning research, professional education and community service.” The objective of SCARP’s new Master of Community and Regional Planning (MCRP) program is to further the Vision and Mission of the School by providing students, through cutting-edge content and innovative pedagogy, with the essential theory, skills, methods, and critical thinking and analytical tools they need to address the complex social and environmental issues of a rapidly urbanizing world. It is intensive and professionally oriented, and students emerge as well-rounded, critical, and creative agents of change.

What makes the program unique?

The MCRP program offers an innovative curriculum that draws upon the expertise of SCARP faculty as well as practicing planners. The strong procedural emphasis on integrated approaches to planning for substantive issues is reflected in the specific requirements for the MCRP degree, as well as the research, professional practice, and service activities of the faculty, staff, and students.

The MCRP program is further guided and informed by the accreditation and standards criteria of the American Institute of Certified Planners’ Planning Accreditation Board and the Canadian Institute of Planners’ accrediting body, the Professional Standards Board. SCARP is one of only two schools in Canada with a master’s program fully accredited by both the Canadian and American planning organizations.

The School is highly regarded within the international profession of planning, and its setting in Vancouver, which attracts world-wide attention and acclaim for excellence in urban planning, enhances the educational experience of SCARP students.
