The Faculty offers programs of undergraduate study leading to the Bachelor of Applied Science in the following areas of engineering: Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemical and Biological Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Environmental Engineering, Geological Engineering, Integrated Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Materials Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Mining Engineering. It also offers the Bachelor of Applied Science in Environmental Engineering as a joint program with the University of Northern British Columbia.

The Faculty of Applied Science admits suitably qualified applicants directly from secondary school into first-year engineering. These students will normally complete the Bachelor of Applied Science in four years of academic study, except in the case of the Engineering Physics program, which requires five years' study. Students may also enter the engineering program after spending one or more years in the Faculty of Science, either because they wish to avail themselves of a broader range of electives or because they do not meet the entrance requirements for admission directly from secondary school (see Admission from BC/Yukon Grade 12 (or equivalent)). Depending on the transfer credit in engineering received from first-year Science (see Admission from Science), such students may be able to complete an engineering degree with three further years of study, otherwise they will require four further years.

Scheduled field trips, and the activities of professional and technical societies all contribute to the rounding out of the undergraduate programs and students are expected to participate in them as fully as circumstances permit.

The Faculty will consider proposals from qualified applicants for part-time study towards the Bachelor of Applied Science. Since the flexibility for such study may be limited, approval must be obtained from the Dean's Office.
