Langara Diagnostic Tests

The Engineering department in the Faculty of Applied Sciences at UBC offers concentrations in Chemical, Chemical and Biological Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Environmental Engineering, Geological Engineering, Integrated Engineering, Materials Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Mining Engineering.

Langara students have the option of enrolling into the Langara Engineering Certificate Program or into a Science program for the purpose of completing their first year of studies toward an Engineering degree at UBC.

The Faculty of Applied Sciences participates in the UBC-Langara Aboriginal Transfer Partnership (ATP). Please refer to the website for further details.

Langara Engineering Certificate Program

Students applying to the Langara Engineering Certificate Program must have:

 

  • Completion of BC Grade 12 or equivalent, or be 19 years of age or older.
  • A minimum "B" in Chemistry 12 or equivalent, a minimum "C+" in CHEM 1118, or Chemistry Diagnostic Test results allowing registration into CHEM 1120.
  • A minimum "B" in Physics 12 or equivalent,a minimum "C+" in PHYS 1118, or Physics Diagnostic Test results allowing registration into PHYS 1125.
  • A minimum "B" in Precalculus 12, or a minimum "C+" in Precalculus 12 with a minimum "C-" grade or higher in Calculus 12, or a minimum "C+" grade in MATH 1170, or a minimum 90 on the Mathematics Diagnostic Test (see note 1).
  • Applicants must also have one of the following:
    • LET with a minimum Level 3
    • LPI with a minimum 26 on the Essay and one of 5 in English Usage, 5 in Sentence Structure, or 10 in Reading Comprehension
    • ENGL 1120 with a minimum "C" grade
    • English Studies 12, Literary Studies 12, or English First Peoples 12 or equivalent with a minimum 80% (see note 2)
    • a university-level English or Communications course for which Langara awards transfer credit, with a minimum "C-" grade
    • an "S" in one of ENGL 1107, 1108, or 1110

**Admission by diagnostic test scores is permitted only with departmental approval. Diagnostic test information is available on the College website.

NOTES:

  1. Applicants who completed Principles of Mathematics 12 prior to September 2019 may use it to satisfy this requirement.
  2. Applicants who completed BC English 12, BC English Literature 12, or BC English First Peoples 12 prior to September 2019 may use these courses to satisfy this requirement.


Applicants to UBC Applied Sciences from BCCAT articulated transfer programs such that of Langara, are currently accepted with a minimum GPA of 3.1 in the 40-42 credits of the program, which ordinarily must be earned within 12 months and prior to the UBC June registration date.

Science Program, Transfer to Engineering

Applicants who have taken at least 27 credits of transferable, first year sciences are eligible to be considered for UBC Engineering if they have achieved the university’s standards of admission. To determine exemptions for first year Engineering courses, please consult the UBC calendar or UBC Department of Engineering.

The type of courses taken and number of transferable credits completed in first- and/or second-year Sciences will determine whether students need to take an additional 3 or 4 years of study at UBC to complete their Engineering degree.

To be eligible for second-year, you need at least 27 university transferable credits that count towards our first-year engineering program by the end of April*. Students that do not meet this criterion will be considered for a modified first-year program.
