Creativity meets logical problem-solving
With the Engineering Transfer program, you get an introduction to engineering mechanics and project design in addition to a solid foundation in first-year science and English. When you’re finished, you’ll be ready to enter into the second year of a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) or Bachelor of Software Engineering (B.S.Eng.) at the University of Victoria (UVic). Or, you can apply for course-to-course transfer to engineering programs at other post-secondary institutions.

A smart start
Your courses are spread over 10 months instead of the traditional eight months. This allows for more time to absorb and master the fundamentals.
Camosun provides a natural transition from high school to university. Smaller classes and more class time for each course allow you to benefit from more interaction with your instructor and fellow students.
Taking your first year of engineering at Camosun is a great investment. You'll learn from experienced faculty, but you'll also spend less money than if you were studying at a big university.
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 summer (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.
Successful completion of all the program courses with an overall GPA of 3.0 (C+) and no less than a C in each course will guarantee you admission into second year Engineering at UVic in at least one of their engineering disciplines. When you transfer to UVic, you choose your specific engineering discipline — biomedical, civil, computer, electrical, mechanical, or software engineering. If space in your first choice is limited, you will be competing on an equal footing with UVic students. If your grades are not competitive to gain admission to your first choice of program, you will be offered an alternate second year program.*
