Engineers are innovators in the fields of science and technology. Your fascinating career starts here with CapU’s respected transfer programs.
Why study engineering at Capilano University?
Capilano University is recognized provincially for producing high-quality engineering transfer students. Our programs integrate chemistry, computing science, mathematics and physics through lectures, tutorials, laboratories and hands-on projects.
You’ll develop high-level critical thinking and analysis skills, in high demand in today’s technical world. Our grads transfer to major BC universities to complete their engineering bachelor’s degrees.
Our programs include laboratory work beginning from the first term, which helps you establish a vital portfolio of skills. You’ll learn techniques that include how to collect, analyze and interpret data, draw sound conclusions and communicate the results.
CapU’s dedicated instructors are engineers who practice in the field. Small class sizes mean you’ll benefit from more individualized instruction. We take pride in the quality of students that we produce and nurture them to find their path. Our students build a strong sense of camaraderie that continues as they transfer to further institutions.
Even if you're not an engineering student, you can gain important STEM skills in three one-credit engineering microcredentials.
These courses — focusing on computer-aided design (CAD), 3D printing and engineering project management — are an excellent booster for students who are looking to add a scientific new element to their degree or diploma.
Careers paths and further education
CapU’s engineering graduates who meet the GPA requirements are guaranteed entry to UBC to complete their bachelor’s degree. You may also opt for engineering programs at UVic or SFU, among others.
An engineering education opens doors to a rewarding and potentially lucrative career. Engineers can specialize in different disciplines ranging from civil, chemical or mechanical, to biomedical, geological, electrical or software engineering.
Many successful leaders have engineering backgrounds, with some becoming CEOs of major companies.
