The Engineering Certificate program provides students with a comprehensive first-year university transfer program in engineering and is aimed at strong academic high school graduates and highly motivated post-secondary science students.

In this one-year certificate, you'll take an introduction to engineering course and courses in technical drafting and CAD, engineering design and materials science.

Successful completion of this program ensures that students who transfer to an engineering degree program at another institution in British Columbia typically require only three additional years of study to complete their degree.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
