The Faculty of Applied Science
The Faculty of Applied Science includes all UBC Engineering activities at both the UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan, as well as the Schools of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, Community and Regional Planning and Nursing. The Faculty was one of UBC's three founding faculties, admitting some of the University's first students in engineering in 1915. UBC instituted the first degree program in Nursing in the British Empire in 1919, and Architecture was established within the Faculty of Applied Science in 1946. Community and Regional Planning joined Applied Science in 2012, having previously been housed within the College for Interdisciplinary Studies.
