This pathway is designed for individuals interested in pursuing a career in the engineering technology sector. This option provides the foundation necessary for success in college engineering technology programs such as architectural, biomedical, chemical, electronics, energy systems, environmental, mechanical, and water quality. Students considering a skilled trade program would also benefit.
Students have opportunities to refine essential skills and foundational knowledge in the areas of science, mathematics, and communication. Ultimately, this provides excellent preparation for further academic studies or employment opportunities. Some General Arts and Science courses are also transferable to other post-secondary programs.
Overall, students will be required to complete six courses per semester (12 courses in total). These include five core courses including Communications (two), Computers (one), Advanced Math (one) and Preparing for Academic Success (one). In addition, seven non-core courses are also taken including Advanced Math (two), Physics (one), Biology (one) and Chemistry (one) and general education elective courses (two). While the course Issues and Ethics in Science is highly recommended, General Education elective courses can be drawn from a wide array of courses in social sciences and liberal arts.
The student advisor offers individual academic planning assistance; students are strongly encouraged to meet with their advisor before selecting courses. Some General Arts and Science courses are also transferable to other post-secondary programs.
- It is each student’s responsibility to ensure that the courses they register in are appropriate for the stated admission requirements for future program choices.
- Successful completion of the GASK certificate does not guarantee admission into another post-secondary program.
- Each educational institution determines its own admission requirements. If you plan to attend any other college or plan to continue your studies at a university, please ensure that courses taken meet that institution’s admission requirements.
