VIU Engineering Diploma and Certificate Program

Engineering Technologist and Transfer Programs

Engineers and Technologists are problem solvers. Whether it is allowing you to carry movies and videos with you at all times, guiding airplanes and hikers to their destinations (GPS navigation systems), or providing clean water to rural villages in sub-Sahara Africa, engineers are problem solvers who search for more efficient, easier to use, and less expensive solutions to today's challenges.

Integrated Engineering Technology Diploma Program

The Integrated Engineering Technology Diploma 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.  Graduates of this program find employment with a wide range of employers including engineering consulting firms, fabrication facilities, heavy industry, and municipal engineering departments.
