Years 1 & 2

First Year

Students admitted into the Engineering program directly from secondary school will take the first-year Engineering One curriculum.

Other students will need to contact Engineering Advising for advice on their first-year program.

Students proceeding to second year will have the option of continuing their Engineering program at the UBC Okanagan campus in Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering, or transferring to the UBC Vancouver campus into one of the following programs: Chemical and Biological Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Geological Engineering, Integrated Engineering, Materials Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Mining Engineering. Admission to a selected program is dependent on performance in first year.
