Begin your career in engineering with small class sizes and faculty dedicated to teaching and learning.
The KPU Engineering First-Year Certificate program replicates the first-year engineering curriculum at engineering-degree granting post-secondary institutions such as UBC and UVic. In addition to a set of standard first-year math and science courses, KPU has developed a number of engineering-specific courses – in engineering design, graphics and microcontrollers – that will help prepare students in their subsequent engineering courses. Students who successfully complete the Engineering First-Year program are eligible to transfer directly into a second-year engineering program at various engineering-degree granting institutions.
Students accepted into the Engineering First-Year program are guaranteed seat availability in all their required courses for their first year. The Engineering First-Year program is intended to be completed within one year. Students admitted to the First-Year program who require more than one-year to complete the Certificate courses will be re-classified and will be able to complete the remaining Certificate courses on a first-come basis.
