Year One

Students come to TRU to study engineering because of the quality of instruction that is provided, its excellent facilities, and its innovative curriculum. Your first year at TRU will be a foundation year that is common to all engineering disciplines. You will study mathematics, physics, and chemistry, as well as topics specific to engineering such as engineering mechanics, drafting, computer programming, and engineering design. In addition, you will have the opportunity to hone your design, trouble-shooting, and fabrication skills during two major projects.

Following your first year, you will have the option of continuing at TRU for a second year to study electrical or computer engineering, or transfer to UBC or UVic in any of their engineering disciplines.
