Okanagan College announces new engineering program for 2021

New path to engineering

Okanagan College will be offering a new pathway to engineering starting in the fall of 2021.

The one-year Common First-Year Engineering (CFYE) certificate offers engineering hopefuls the opportunity to gain the necessary skills for higher level engineering courses. 

It will provide a comprehensive applied science foundation across a wide variety of subjects, including chemistry and computer programming, setting students up for a successful transfer into second-year university engineering studies. 

“With the Okanagan being such a dynamic and growing hub for technology and engineering, this new program is yet another way we can provide access to learners looking to start their engineering education,” says Laura Thurnheer, Associate of Dean of Science, Technology and Health and Social Development at the College.

“We designed the program with an emphasis on transferability, so students can take confidence knowing that they can complete first year studies at OC and can go on to complete their engineering degree at a number of universities in B.C. They can expect to receive a world-class engineering education and training experience with us that will set them up for success in their future.”
