Engineering Bridge

What You'll Learn

Mining Engineering Bridge to UBC

The Mining Engineering Bridge program is offered by Camosun with the full support and cooperation of the University of British Columbia Vancouver (UBC V). Gain access to the third year of the Bachelor of Applied Science at UBC V with your Mining Engineering Technology diploma. You'll study advanced topics that aren't typically found in technology programs.

Advanced Diploma in Mining Engineering to the University of British Columbia

Mining engineering is concerned with the optimal exploitation of mineral resources while minimizing environmental impact. The discipline requires a broad knowledge of engineering and scientific subjects. The Bridge to UBC study option is offered September through April. You'll start your third year of the Bachelor of Applied Science degree program at UBC Vancouver in September.

Once accepted into UBC you can participate in the Co-operative Education option. If you decide to participate in Co-op, some work terms from your technology diploma may be transferable between institutions. There is an optional internship work term available in the Bridge that is transferable.
