Program Offerings

The Science and Technology Faculty offers a wide range of programs, including certificates, two-year diplomas, four-year degrees, as well as transfer programs to other institutions and study abroad opportunities. Every program has a practical component, allowing students to 'practice what they have learned' and obtain marketable skills. VIU Science & Technology programs are held in high regard and graduates are very successful in both career placement and admissions to graduate schools.

Note that information regarding each of our programs can be found on two sites:

  • The Department Sites provide information regarding program offerings, faculty, scholarships and bursaries, student projects, alumni, career opportunities, and student resources.

  • The VIU Program and Course Calendar information includes a general description of the program, admissions requirements, fees, course requirements for majors and minors (as applicable), with further links to course descriptions
