Program details

Upon completion of this program, graduates of Okanagan College’s Electronic Engineering Technology program will be able to bridge into second year, second semester of Electrical Engineering at UBC Okanagan.

The program consists of courses intended to broaden and deepen the student’s knowledge to allow them to succeed in the Electrical Engineering degree program at UBC-O. It has been developed in cooperation with UBC-O. The program uses existing courses offered by Okanagan College and can be taken part-time. Some courses may be taken through Distance Education (ENGL 100, some Arts/Humanities). The program will take one semester full-time, or longer if taken part-time.

The current bridge program, from Electronic Engineering Technology at Okanagan College into Electrical Engineering at UBCO, is being changed from a four-month bridge into an eight-month bridge. Once the new eight-month bridge has been finalized and approved by UBCO and by Education Council at Okanagan College, students will be able to apply for this new bridge program. It is hoped that this will happen sometime in the Spring of 2024.

This program has not been scheduled. Contact chooseoc@okanagan.bc.ca for more information.
