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 need more than 100,000 engineers across all industries, creating major demand for qualified workers like you.

Douglas College offers three credentials in Engineering: the one-year Engineering Foundations Certificate, one-year Fabrication Technologies Certificate and two-year Engineering and Fabrication Technologies Diploma.

If you are interested in pursuing an engineering degree at another institution, the Engineering Foundations Certificate provides essential first-year academic courses and is fully-transferable to SFU, UBC and UVic’s Engineering Degree programs, as well as UBC’s Wood Products Processing Degree program. The Fabrication Technologies Certificate, as well as the second year of the diploma program, provides hands-on applied training in the fabrication lab. 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.
