Are you ready to get your P.Eng.?
Start in September
Camosun’s Engineering Bridge programs are for technology diploma grads who want to continue with third-year studies at UVic or UBC to finish an engineering degree. This is your next step to becoming a Professional Engineer.
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 Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB) programs are welcome to apply.
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.
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 from 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.
Note: To be eligible to participate in a Co-op or Internship term, you need to successfully complete all first-term courses with a minimum GPA of 3.0, be fully enrolled in the academic term immediately preceding the work term with a minimum of nine (9) credits, and complete the workshop series CDEV WPS prior to your first work term. You must also receive approval from the Applied Learning, Co-operative Education and Career Services department.

Combining theory and technology
The Engineering Bridge programs share many common courses, which have been developed in consultation and cooperation with UBC and UVic. The Engineering Bridge programs are rigorous and you should expect to dedicate yourself to your studies throughout your time in the program.
