Faculty of Arts & Sciences
School of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM)
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.
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.
- Demonstrate an understanding of the scientific method and to be able to apply it critically to solve problems.
