Program Overview

The Engineering Transfer program provides you with a supportive environment where you can achieve the highest grades possible before transferring to another institution to complete your degree in Engineering.

You spend the first year of an Engineering degree at UFV, covering topics such as linear algebra, structured programming, and mechanics. You then may complete your degree at UBC, UVic, or at another university. Once transferred, you join other second-year students in competition for entry into the engineering specialties, such as Mechanical, Electrical or Chemical.

Transfer options
Second, third, and fourth year can be completed at UBC (Okanagan or Vancouver campus) or UVic*. Courses may also transfer to alternative institutions. Be sure to consult with the engineering program you are applying to for admissions and transfer details. Students must formally apply for admission to the destination institution, according to their application procedures and deadlines.

* Note: the transfer options described above refer to admission to UBC’s Faculty of Applied Science or UVic’s Faculty of Engineering. Once admitted, there is another competition for specialty (Mechanical, Civil, Electrical, etc.). Admitted students are ranked according to GPA and are assigned to their specialty according to their stated preferences and their overall GPA. If a specialty fills with higher GPA students before a lower-ranked student comes up, then that lower-ranked student will be put into their second or third choice of specialty.
