Engineering Transfer

What You’ll Learn

Master the fundamentals of engineering

Use both sides of your brain! Engineers need to be creative, yet logical thinkers. In the Engineering Transfer program you'll sharpen your skills in math, physics, English, chemistry, computer science and engineering courses.

What to expect

You will take three terms over the course of ten months. Terms 1 and 2 take place at the Lansdowne campus in the fall (September to December) and winter (January to April). Term 3 takes place at the Interurban campus in the spring (May to June).

After mastering the basics of math, physics, English, chemistry, and computer science during the first two terms, you will learn about engineering design and mechanical engineering in your final term. After your time at Camosun, you will be well on your way toward your Engineering degree at UVic or at another university.
