What You'll Learn

Mechanical Engineering Bridge to UVic

The Mechanical 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 Mechanical 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 Mechanical 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 Mechanical Engineering

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 Bridge to UVic study option is offered January through December. You'll start your third year of the Bachelor of Engineering degree program at UVic in January the following year.

Once accepted into UVic you will be required to participate in a mandatory Co-op, however, some work terms from your technology diploma may be transferable between institutions.
