Engineering Department

Engineers are innovators in the fields of science and technology. Your fascinating career starts here with CapU’s respected transfer programs.

Why study engineering at Capilano University?

Capilano University is recognized provincially for producing high-quality engineering transfer students. Our programs integrate chemistry, computing science, mathematics and physics through lectures, tutorials, laboratories and hands-on projects. 

You’ll develop high-level critical thinking and analysis skills, in high demand in today’s technical world. Our grads transfer to major BC universities to complete their engineering bachelor’s degrees.

Our programs include laboratory work beginning from the first term, which helps you establish a vital portfolio of skills. You’ll learn techniques that include how to collect, analyze and interpret data, draw sound conclusions and communicate the results.

CapU’s dedicated instructors are engineers who practice in the field. Small class sizes mean you’ll benefit from more individualized instruction. We take pride in the quality of students that we produce and nurture them to find their path. Our students build a strong sense of camaraderie that continues as they transfer to further institutions.

Careers paths and further education

CapU’s engineering graduates who meet the GPA requirements are guaranteed entry to UBC to complete their bachelor’s degree. You may also opt for engineering programs at UVic or SFU, among others.

An engineering education opens doors to a rewarding and potentially lucrative career. Engineers can specialize in different disciplines ranging from civil, chemical or mechanical, to biomedical, geological, electrical or software engineering.

Many successful leaders have engineering backgrounds, with some becoming CEOs of major companies.

Engineering programs

Both of CapU's engineering programs offer a transfer guarantee with the University of British Columbia (UBC) if completed in the specified time frame and with the specified minimum GPA. See transfer details on the UBC website

Engineering certificate

This one-year program is for recent high school graduates who meet the prerequisite requirements for first year engineering, which includes Pre-Calculus 12, Chemistry 12, English 12, and Physics 12. It’s equivalent to the common first year of engineering at UBC. 

Engineering transition diploma

This two-year program provides mature students – or recent high school graduates who lack the prerequisites for entry into a traditional engineering program – a pathway to obtain an applied science degree, en route to becoming professional engineers.
