We have all the necessary first-year science & math courses, and even some of the second-year courses, with professors who are experts, mostly with PhDs. And unlike at UBC or SFU or UVic or elsewhere, these courses are taught in small classes and from a Christian perspective.
You can take other TWU core courses to provide a solid foundation in the Christian liberal arts: Philosophy, History, Religious Studies, Psychology, Business, Communication, and others.
Students will find that many aspects of TWU allow them to uniquely meet many of the "non-scientific" components which are important in the training and life of an engineer.
Engineering is part of our mandate to develop and advance culture through wise and stewardly use of the resources entrusted to us by their and our Creator.
The world needs insightful, servant leadership by engineers whose motivations and ideals have been formulated through a critical analysis of the positive and negative cultural effects of technology.
Engineers must seek to develop technological artifacts in ways which acknowledge the fact that the users and beneficiaries are image-bearers of the Creator.
Students who have completed the following courses at Trinity Western can apply for entry into the first year of the engineering program at UBC:
Completion of these courses will reduce the course requirements in the four-year engineering program at UBC.
The three universities in British Columbia offering Engineering programs, namely the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, and the University of Victoria, reserve space in their second year for students who have completed the equivalent of first year engineering at another institution. Requirements vary among these universities; a one or two-year program at Trinity Western can be crafted in consultation with the Coordinator of Engineering Transfer and the destination university.
For entry into the second year of UBC Engineering, one or more of the following additional courses are required, the more the better:
Several additional courses will strengthen your background and likely help reduce the course load in the final three years of the UBC Engineering program, such as:
UBC requires a GPA of 2.7 for transfer, and will work with students in cases where not all courses have been completed. This is subject to change, and is a bit more detailed: a GPA of 2.7 is required in first year math and science courses, and a separate GPA is calculated based on the 10 most recently taken courses (including F's and repeats).
Students wishing to complete their engineering degree at UBC are encouraged to contact and visit them in the fall semester prior to their planned arrival at UBC.
