Civil Engineering Bridge to UBC

Start in September!

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

In demand

Industry professionals and educators agree—the combination of a Technology diploma and Engineering degree creates the most desirable type of engineer.

You will gain both hands-on experience with practical applied skills and an excellent knowledge of advanced engineering courses.

The only program of its kind

The Engineering Bridge programs at Camosun are unique and recognized across Canada as an excellent transition from a technology diploma to an Engineering degree (UVic) or Applied Science degree (UBC).

Although the Bridge programs are designed for graduates of technology diplomas delivered through Camosun, all graduates from accredited TAC programs are welcome to apply.
