Students admitted into the Engineering program directly from secondary school will take the first-year curriculum. Students identified as being eligible to take Biomedical Engineering Program content in first year will receive a modified first year timetable.
The typical transfer program is appropriate for most students transferring into the Faculty from the first year of a science program at UBC or another university or college. Applicants with more than 26 credits of engineering transfer credit may be eligible for second-year engineering. See Admission from a Post-Secondary Institution.
For information about the first year curriculum and transferring into the Biomedical Engineering Program, refer to the UBC calendar page for the Biomedical Engineering program.
Other students will need to contact Engineering Academic Services for advice on their first-year program.

Options in Third and Fourth Years
In some departments selected groups of courses are offered as options which represent different areas of interest. High-quality performance in any option or field qualifies the student to continue his studies at the graduate level if he chooses to do so. Students entering third year should consult representatives of the departments concerned before registering for the courses offered.
