Integrated Engineering Technologist Diploma

The Integrated Engineering Technologist Diploma at VIU emphasizes the design process in civil, mechanical, and structural technologies. Students develop and apply a strong foundation in physics, mathematics, computer programming, computer-aided drawing, as well as project management principles to engineering designs and prototype manufacture. 

Graduate outcomes 

Graduates of this program find employment with a wide range of employers including engineering consulting firms, fabrication facilities, heavy industry, and municipal engineering departments. This program was specially designed to equip graduates with skills and knowledge desired by engineering companies. You can graduate after two-and-a-half years in the diploma program and enter the workforce faster than if you pursued a bachelor’s degree.
