Program Information

School:Langara College
Faculty:Mathematics and Science - University Transfer Programs
Degree:Certificate; University Transfer
Field of Study:Engineering, General
Description:The Certificate in Arts and Science (Engineering) program provides courses needed for equivalence to the first year of the University of British Columbia Applied Science program. Most of the courses are courses that would be taken by many students planning further studies in the physical sciences at any college or university, but two of the courses, PHYS 1219 and CPSC 1090, are particular to UBC’s Applied Science program. The Certificate in Arts and Science (Engineering) can serve as the first year towards a Diploma in Arts and Science Diploma or an Associate of Science Degree.

Transfer to UBC second-year Applied Science or to other faculties or institutions will depend on those institutions and each application will be considered on its merits. The need to maintain a high grade-point average and to demonstrate the ability to handle a heavy course load cannot be overemphasized. Generally, students who have received the Certificate in Arts and Science (Engineering) and who have completed all the courses required for the certificate at Langara College are admitted with a lower GPA than would otherwise be required. Subsequent application to UBC will require a minimum GPA of 2.5 in the 42 to 44 credits of the program, which ordinarily must be earned in the three semesters indicated. The Langara College certificate will require a minimum GPA of 2.5 in the 42 to 44 credits, which must be earned in a period of no longer than five consecutive semesters.
