We can help you make an impact on the causes and communities you care about. Revolutionizing the entire ecosystem at UBC Applied Science, your gifts support critical transformations that enable leading-edge research and the accelerated development of innovations that will benefit society.

Our professional disciplines span the entire human-centred built environment, representing innovation at all scales from nanoscale electronic devices that power communications to the design of entire cities.

The work we do matters, but it requires far greater resources than what public funding sources can provide. Your contributions support the next generation of leaders in architecture, nursing, planning and engineering, and fuel the discovery of transformative innovations that seek to solve society’s grand challenges.

As the Faculty of Applied Science looks ahead to the future, we have defined our core strengths and the six key areas where we are positioned to make the greatest impact.

 

Build a university for the future

To drive economic development and positively impact society on a global scale, the old way of doing things simply won't cut it. Help us keep pace with the evolution of our disciplines and shape student experiences through innovative and competitive programming, creative and collaborative spaces and flexible learning options.

Transform the future of work

Change doesn’t happen overnight. With your support, we will develop the future’s inclusive leaders and cultivate a culture grounded in respect, understanding, humility, wellness, balance and joy, starting right here at UBC.
