Conestoga offers three degree programs in the School of Engineering and each one allows for college transfer of credits from graduates of advanced diploma programs for degree completion. College graduates complete a bridging module of study then transfer into the third year of the degree program. The bridging module fills the gap and prepares the student to be successful in their degree studies. Degree completion leads to a Bachelor of Applied Technology and is available in the following programs:
College graduates have successfully transferred into each of these programs over the past few years.
The Architecture – Project and Facility Management (APFM) program accepts graduates from architectural technology and construction engineering technology advanced diploma programs. To be eligible for admission, graduates must have a 70% average in their diploma and attend an interview/portfolio review. APFM runs a one month bridging program in the month of August each year. After successful completion of the bridging program the students will commence year three of the regular program. These students will also complete two co-op work terms. College graduates from a variety of Ontario Colleges have transferred in, including Conestoga, Sheridan, Mohawk and St. Clair. Two cohorts of students have graduated from this program, in 2007 and 2008, and both have included a significant number of college transfer students.
The Integrated Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (IAMT) program accepts graduates of mechanical engineering technology programs. To be eligible for admission, graduates must have a 75% average in their diploma and have taken a calculus course which includes differential and integral calculus. IAMT runs a bridging program that is four months in length, delivered in September to December of each year. After successful completion of the bridging program the students will commence year three of the regular program. These students will also complete two co-op work terms. To date, 15 students have transferred into the program from Conestoga’s Mechanical Engineering Technology program and eight have graduated.
The Integrated Telecommunications and Computer Technologies (ITCT) program acceptsgraduates of Conestoga’s Telecommunications and Computer Technology diploma programs. Graduates of similar programs from other colleges are encouraged to contact the program coordinator for more information on eligibility. ITCT runs a bridging program that is four months in length, delivered in January to April of each year. After successful completion of the bridging program the students commence year three of the regular program in the following fall semester. One transfer student has successfully graduated and two are currently enrolled in the program.
