Program Description

Program Description

No assured admission agreement is in place with UBC. UBC sets an admission GPA for entrance into its 2nd year engineering program based on the university transfer courses completed by the student. To attempt admission into 2nd year engineering at UBC it is recommended that students complete the following courses: MATH 1100, PHYS 1100, CHEM 1121, CMPT 1010, MATH 1221, MATH 1200, PHYS 1200, CHEM 1223, SCIE 1151, ENGL 1100, and PHYS 1170.

Program Learning Outcomes

A graduate with a University Transfer Engineering Certificate has reliably demonstrated to a first year university level the ability to:

  1. Incorporate critical thinking into theoretical reasoning and decision making;
  2. Demonstrate teamwork by working collaboratively in laboratory activities;
  3. Demonstrate information literacy abilities to determine the nature and extent of information required;
  4. Apply the appropriate presentation style to produce clear and accurate written, verbal, and visual communication for clients and other professionals;
  5. Utilize accepted research process and abilities in all professional enquires, communications, and scholarship;
  6. Demonstrate the scientific and quantitative methodology as well as the analytical skills for entrance into second year science courses;
  7. Demonstrate problem-solving in physics, chemistry, math and computer programming.

Instructional Activities, Design and Delivery Mode

The courses are presented using a variety of instructional strategies, resources and activities including lectures, demonstrations, guest speakers, case studies, and computer and laboratory applied practical experiences.

Evaluation of Student Learning

Evaluation of the courses is determined by the instructor and may include a combination of practical assignments, projects, theory exam and/or practical exams.

Successful completion of a minimum of 36 credits of university transfer articulated first year courses as per the British Columbia Council on Admission and Transfer Guide (BCCAT) is required for completion of the certificate.

Once you have completed all of the required courses to be eligible for this certificate you can complete the Application for Credential and submit to records@vcc.ca.
