We’ve recently completed a redesign of The NBK Institute of Mining Engineering at UBC.

Originally built in 2000, the website was long overdue for an overhaul.

UBC’s Department of Mining Engineering is known for being a small, close-knit family.

Our Department is exemplified by the dedication of the faculty and staff who provide a dynamic, hands-on learning experience for both undergraduate and graduate students.

This new, lightweight Content Management System:

  • allows staff and faculty to update their own unique profiles
  • flexible CMS controls allow for dynamic content to be generated with little effort
  • follows UBC’s Common Look and Feel criteria
  • is fully integrated with UBC’s Applied Science IT infrastructure
  • takes advantage of powerful Search Engine Optimization techniques
  • has a fresh, modern look that drastically improves the Department’s image

In addition, the site has a powerful hosting platform which allows for significant improvements in the Department’s teaching and research resources.

While there is still a lot of information and fine tuning to be done on the site, the Department has opted to push the site live as it is a drastic improvement on the old site.

The new site can be viewed at
