“Because my grades weren’t very good in high-school, I found myself lacking the required prerequisites to attend University. The 6 month Electronics Access Program at Camosun College provided me with all the prerequisites necessary for a 2 ½ year Technology Diploma with the option to continue on and obtain a Bachelor of Engineering degree.”
