Here are the answers to some common questions. If you need further information, please call or email the department chair.
How do I apply?
You can apply online through the Okanagan College Website.
What are the fees?
Fees for the upcoming year can be found on the Program Calendar page.
What are the entrance requirements?
Once again, the entrance requirements can be found on the Program Calendar page.
Do I need Math 12?
Currently Math 12 is not a requirement for the program, however students are encouraged to improve their math skills as much as possible. We often find that students who only have Math 11 tend to struggle a little more in the first year, especially those students who have been out of school for a while. Studying electronics does require math skills, and the more you know the easier everything else will be.
How much should I budget for textbooks?
Not all your courses will require textbooks, but some do. You can typically expect to pay a few hundred dollars for your books.
With my diploma, can I work as a technologist in other provinces?
Yes, the program is nationally accredited by the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB) and are eligible to work as technologists across Canada and Internationally.
