Engineering Foundations Certificate


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Browse Programs A-Z

As an NIC Engineering Foundations Certificate student, you will gain the same skills and knowledge that you would receive in your first year at institutions such as UVic and UBC, but with smaller class sizes and personalized instruction in classes and labs. Choose from part-time or full-time studies to manage your workload or complete the program in one academic year. Upon graduation, you will be well prepared to communicate your ideas effectively as you learn to solve math and physical science problems at the first-year university level, applying principles of math and science to creative problem solving and design.
