Bachelor of Science in Wood Products Processing (UBC transfer program)

Okanagan College offers a university transfer program enabling students to enter into year two of UBC's five-year BSc program in Wood Product Processing. This program has been modelled after similar programs which have been successful in Europe. It is designed to provide technically-capable graduates for entry-level positions in the management of wood products manufacturing companies. Wood, a renewable resource, is a critical component of Canada's economy. Graduates with a sound technological and management background are needed to guide this industry into the future.

The UBC program has strong industry support in the form of scholarships and guaranteed employment. The co-operative education format of the program is recommended, as it includes five paid work terms in the industry and provides students with valuable experience.
