There is a lot more to being a
successful engineering student than
academic skills. Technical writing,
public speaking and the ability to
work with others are all essential
skills that are valued by employers
and post-secondary institutions.
The Summit Engineering program
will give students opportunities to
hone their technical writing and
public speaking skills as they
document and present their projects.
Guest speakers, field experiences and
possible mentorships from
engineering companies will enrich
the program. Students will be able
to see the wide range of possibilities

The following courses are required for the
Summit Engineering Diploma. With the
exception of the Engineering Projects
courses, all of these are required for
entrance into Engineering programs at
UBC, SFU and BCIT. The Projects
courses will give prospective Engineering
students the distinct advantage of having
practical experience to compliment the
Beginning in Grade 10, students
take an Engineering Projects
course that uses the math and
science knowledge in practical
applications. The focus is on
connecting the theory to its uses in
the field of engineering.
In Grade 11, students will continue
with the Engineering Projects
course and work on more advanced
projects as their math and science
knowledge base expands.
For Grade 12, students will
complete a Capstone Project in
their chosen domain to complete
the program and earn the
Engineering Summit Diploma.
