Your Degree: Foundation Years

The path to a Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) degree begins at the School of Engineering with Engineering One & Two -- foundation years rooted in project-based team learning.

The common first-year curriculum -- Engineering One -- lays engineering skill foundations. The curriculum emphasizes project-based learning, offering first-year students an opportunity to implement engineering design projects. First-year engineering design projects include 3-D printing, computer-aided design, and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), and the opportunity to implement the principles of engineering in a second-term design project.

The Engineering Two program builds on foundation courses while expanding into engineering specializations. It culminates in the Hovercraft Competition, which incorporates elements such as electronics, magnetism, statics, dynamics, fluid flow, and materials.

With a solid foundation, students then choose a specific program following their second year: Civil, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering. You choose which discipline to enter. There are no quotas or caps on these programs at UBC Okanagan.
