Mechanical Engineering added to Camosun’s suite of technology programs

Camosun’s new Mechanical Engineering program opened in September 1985.

Supported by a major grant from the Federal Government Skills Growth Fund and relying heavily on computer applications, this program was unique in BC and introduced CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design & Computer Aided Manufacuring) to the Interurban Campus.

It was later to be used in the pilot Engineering Bridge program which prepared graduate technologists for advanced entry to Mechanical Engineering at UVIC.
