The MFRE Program

 

MFRE offers students data-driven and professional skills needed to solve relevant real-world issues, through rigorous coursework, challenging graduating projects, professional development workshops, and an innovative speaker series. Our MFRE students consistently and successfully obtain quality graduating projects and career positions - even in a challenging year such as 2020.

 

Current Teaching Mode

This year, the MFRE program is one of the few at UBC Vancouver to be taught in a combination of small group in-person and on-line classes through our innovative hyflex teaching model, which allows us to continue teaching our students in a safe environment.
