The 13 courses of the ETP are arranged in the manner shown in the following tables. This order of courses is used so all the pre-requisites can be met, the work-load is relatively balanced, students don’t have to choose between UBC and UVic until the second semester, and there is some flexibility to deal with common problems. Students in the 24 reserved seats will have specific places reserved for them in these courses creating a workable schedule. The registration codes for this idealized schedule is sent to all students enrolled in the program.
Students intending to do the courses in the ETP in one year without being admitted to the ETP should also try to follow this schedule, but variations may be necessary. This is discussed in the e-mails sent out to all applicants.
Fall Semester (Common to UBC and UVic)
|CHEM 113||Principles of Chemistry I||5|
|COMP 152||Introduction to Structured Programming||4|
|ENGL 105||The Reading and Writing of Prose||3|
|MATH 111||Calculus I||4|
|ENGR 151||Computer-Aided Engineering Graphics ||4|
|ENGR 122||Introduction to Engineering||1|
|Principles of Chemistry II||5|
|MATH 112||Calculus II||4|
|ENGR 152||Linear Algebra for Engineering||4|
|Algebra Based Physics||5|
|PHYS 112||Electricity and Magnetism||5|
ENGR 113 Statics and Dynamics
|Elective1 (See Note1) (UBC Only)||3|
|Note 1: As a general rule the elective must be taken from the Faculty of Arts. Scientific geography, and studio/performance courses in the fine arts, music, theatre and business will not satisfy this requirement. Introductory language courses in a student’s first language, as well as business and kinesiology courses, are also not acceptable. Suitable courses include: English, History, Psychology, Philosophy and Economics.|
Note 2: Unless stated, the minimum grade acceptable in all course prerequisites is a C-.
Note 3: UBC accepts either the pair of courses Comp 150 + Comp 155 or the single
course Comp 152. There are second year courses that can substitute for some of the first year ETP courses, and come students choosing to do the courses over two years will occasionally choose these for scheduling reasons. UBC requires a minimum 2.5 GPA. UVic requires a minimum 2.33 GPA.
Second, third, and fourth year are completed at UBC or UVic. Courses may also transfer to alternative institutions. Students must apply formally for admission to the awarding institution. Some students choose to take two years at UFV and take all 13 courses of the Engineering Transfer program plus their second-year math courses and additional electives before they transfer. However, these students do not get reserved seats.
Students may also be able to qualify for entry to UBC Engineering by going through General Sciences, as described under the "Transfer from General Sciences" link.
Engineering Studies at Other Universities
Many of the above courses transfer individually to other universities offering engineering programs. Student Services advisors should be consulted to determine the transferability of each course to the university of interest. UFV offers a number of second-year courses in math and science which also transfer individually.
