The Certificate in Science and Technology is a non‑degree program that caters to students who wish to prepare for admission to a degree program in engineering or computer science. It is not intended for students who wish to prepare for admission to a science program.
The certificate requires the successful completion of 30 credits at Concordia as outlined below. A GPA of 2.00 must be maintained to remain in the certificate program.
Students enrolled in the certificate program may request a transfer into a degree program in the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science after the completion of at least 18 credits with a minimum CGPA of 2.50 in the certificate program. The grade in each course must be C- or better for the course to count towards the program.
For advising assistance, students should contact Student Academic Services.
Students who have a DEC or satisfy out-of-province or international admissions criteria may be considered for admission, based on their academic profile, age, experience and potential (see Section 13.3 Admission Requirements).
Independent students wishing to enter the certificate program must be in good standing. Students may transfer into the certificate program up to 12 credits earned at Concordia, provided they are students in good standing. The credits that may be so transferred are determined by the University at the point of entry into the program. The credits for courses taken at another institution cannot be transferred into the certificate program. Programs for individual students can be designed in consultation with an academic advisor at Student Academic Services.
