Engineering programs coming to Douglas

Explore. Plan. Design. Create. Sound appealing? It’s what engineers do every day, using the principles of science and mathematics. And, there’s no better place to get started than Douglas.

We’ve got two new engineering programs in the works for this year: the one-year Engineering Foundations certificate, and the two-year Engineering Essentials diploma.

If you’re planning on heading to university, specifically UBC, then check out the one-year certificate, All courses transfer to UBC’s school of engineering, and you’ll be able to improve your GPA and save a bit of money by starting at Douglas.

The two-year diploma program is where you can really start getting into the fun stuff. The second year allows students to build and design real-world applications – robots and Raspberry Pi’s – and use fabrication technologies such as waterjets, laser cutters and spot welders. You’ll be eligible for co-operative education, and networking opportunities will also be arranged for students.

Both programs are planned to start this year. To find out more about either program and get your name on the wait list you can attend an information session on Thursday June 11, 5:30-7pm, in room 3903 at the New Westminster Campus, or contact Barb Allen, program coordinator, at 604 527 5427 or by email.
