Every man-made product on Earth is engineered for a specific purpose. As an engineer, you have the tools to create anything you want by pulling knowledge from various scientific and mathematic disciplines, including chemistry, physics and calculus. 

Graduates of STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics – programs are highly sought-after in Canada. By 2020, Canada will be short more than 100,000 engineers across all industries, creating major demand for qualified workers like you. 

Douglas College offers two credentials in Engineering: a one-year Engineering Foundations certificate and two-year Engineering Essentials diploma

If you are interested in pursuing an engineering degree at another institution, the one-year certificate is fully-transferable to UBC Engineering. The second year of the diploma program includes several hands-on applied courses. You’ll pick up plenty of new skills, including learning how to spot weld, constructing robots, fabricating water jets and even building your own Raspberry Pi.
