Engineering Bridge

What You’ll Learn

Combining theory and technology

The Engineering Bridge programs share many common courses, which have been developed in consultation and co-operation with UBC and UVic. The Engineering Bridge programs are rigorous and you should expect to dedicate yourself to your studies throughout your time in the program.

What to expect

Our UVic Engineering Bridge programs are comprised of two academic terms. Each term, you’ll attend 14 weeks of class followed by an exam period. Classes are scheduled for 25-28 hours per week. Homework commitments vary per student but amount to about three to four hours per day including weekends.

If a number of years have passed since your graduation, it is strongly advised that you retake math courses in preparation for returning to school. A comprehensive review of the math topics that Camosun students have covered in their technology programs has been created by instructor Raymond Lai for the Bridge program.

Chemistry and Mathematics

Graduates of programs with minimal chemistry may wish to take a college-level chemistry course in preparation for entry into the Bridge Program. Please contact an Academic Advisor for more information.

If more than five years have passed since your graduation, you may be required to complete Math 100 - Calculus 1 in advance of the Bridge program.
