What You'll Learn

Mechanical Engineering Bridge to UBC

The Mechanical Engineering Bridge program provides access to the third year of Mechanical Engineering at the University of British Columbia Vancouver (UBC V) or University of British Columbia Okanagan (UBC O). Gain access into the third year at university with your Mechanical Engineering Technology diploma. You'll study advanced topics that aren't typically found in technology programs.

Advanced Diploma in Mechanical Engineering to the University of British Columbia

Mechanical engineers design and build machines and other products, such as robots, spacecraft, automobiles, artificial limbs, amusement park rides, elevators, and manufacturing equipment. If something moves or uses energy, mechanical engineering was probably involved in its design or production.

The Mechanical Engineering Bridge to the University of British Columbia program consists of two academic terms, beginning in September and finishing at the end of May for entry into the third year of Engineering at the University of British Columbia in September.

An Internship work term is optional for this program.
