Start building a strong foundation for your engineering degree by participating in the free, non-credit Summer Transition to Engineering Bridge Program in August.  Enroll in short (4-day) courses presented by School of Engineering faculty designed to prepare you for your first year of engineering.

The courses will include introductory university math, physics, and coding with a focus on engineering applications.  Instructors will include award-winning faculty who typically teach first-year courses.

The aim of the program is to provide refreshers and/or reinforce important engineering themes and concepts to enhance the experience of incoming first-year students.

The online courses are being launched in a flexible and modular online platform.

The School of Engineering encourages students entering UBC in September to take these non-credit courses, but enrolment is optional.
