Douglas College and the University of British Columbia have partnered to provide engineering students a pathway into a university degree program. Douglas students who complete the two-year Diploma in Engineering and Fabrication Technologies will have a guaranteed transfer pathway into the second year of a bachelor’s degree in engineering at UBC, provided they meet the required GPA.
Students who complete the one-year Engineering Foundations Certificate are also eligible for the guaranteed transfer pathway to UBC, provided they complete two additional courses and meet the GPA requirements. The transfer agreement is effective June 2019.
“The University of British Columbia offers one of the most modern and competitive engineering programs in the country,” said Brian Chapell, Douglas Dean of the Faculty of Science and Technology. “By entering into this transfer agreement, Douglas students will have more options available to help them achieve their academic and career goals.”
