Overview

Certificate in Engineering First-Year

Engineering First-Year at KPU is a two-semester program designed for well-prepared students to meet the requirements for direct transfer to the second-year of an engineering degree program.

KPU's Engineering First-Year program includes many of the courses and topics common to the first-year of engineering degree programs at UBC, UVic and SFU.

Transfer to UBC

The KPU program most closely resembles UBC's first-year engineering curriculum. Successful completion of the KPU program with a sufficiently high GPA may qualify the student for UBC's second-year Engineering Transfer admissions guarantee. 

Transfer to UVic

Students that successfully complete the KPU program with a sufficiently high GPA may be considered for admission to second year on an equal footing with 1st year UVic engineering students. 

Transfer to SFU

Students that successfully complete the KPU program with a sufficiently high GPA may be eligible to transfer to second-year engineering at SFU. However, there will be first-year courses specific to the SFU engineering programs that students may need to complete at SFU. 

Students must still apply formally for admission to the destination university as transfer from KPU is not automatic, nor guaranteed. Conditions for transfer are set by the receiving institution. Details must be confirmed by the student.
