Engineering Bridge

What You'll Learn

Electrical and Computer Engineering Bridge to the University of Victoria

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Bridge to the University of Victoria program is offered by Camosun College with co-operation of the University of Victoria (UVic). Students with an approved diploma in Computer, Electrical or Electronics Engineering Technology, or a related discipline, can take this one year program to upgrade their mathematics, sciences, and related engineering knowledge in preparation for entering the third year of Engineering at the University of Victoria.

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Bridge to the University of Victoria program is offered in the Winter and Fall semesters for entry into the third year of Engineering at the University of Victoria in January.

An Internship work term is optional for this program.

Advanced Diploma in Electrical & Computer Engineering

As an electrical or computer engineer, you’ll be trained in designing, developing, operating, maintaining and researching power distribution systems, automotive systems, communications systems, medical systems and a huge variety of electricity-dependent products and systems, ranging from tiny consumer products to alternative energy sources to huge hydroelectric dams.

This six-month program starts in late June of each year, allowing subsequent entry into the third year at UVic in January. Once accepted into UVic you will be required to participate in mandatory co-operative education. However, some co-op work terms from your technology diploma may be transferable between institutions.
