Admission Requirements

To be eligible for admission, you must possess the following:
• Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent including these required courses:
– Grade 12 English (ENG4C or ENG4U or equivalent)
• Mature student status
• College or university transfer status

All applicants whose first language is not English must meet Humber’s English Language Proficiency Policy.

Post-admission testing in writing and basic mathematics is required. Applicants may be counselled into an alternative choice based on test results. While the General Arts and Science programs have been designed to prepare students to enter a major course of study in their chosen area, a General Arts and Science certificate or diploma is neither a guarantee, nor a requirement for entry into subsequent programs at Humber or elsewhere.

Selection: Admission selection is based on the academic criteria indicated. Meeting minimum eligibility requirements does not guarantee admission.

Our Program

Math and science are critical requirements to move into many in-demand jobs. Structural designer, construction manager, radio frequency field technician, computer-aided drafting and design operator, and civil engineer are just some of the jobs based on a solid understanding of math and science. Consider the numbers: technicians, skilled trades and engineers are among the top job categories around the world. Demand will only grow in those and other areas as 75 per cent of new jobs created from 2009 to 2018 will be in high-skill occupations – but the reality is that the majority of high school students stop taking science in Grade 10. And that’s where Humber’s General Arts and Science – Technology certificate program can help.

Our program is designed to help you improve and build on your math, science and English skills – skills that are absolutely necessary to help you pursue a career in engineering and technology. Humber’s General Arts and Science – Technology certificate program can help you prepare for future studies in the field of your choice. It is a preparatory program that will help you develop the skills and knowledge you will need with courses in chemistry, physics, technical mathematics and writing, AutoCAD and technology foundations. In a special integrated skills course, you will improve academic skills, explore learning styles and decide on the career path that best suits your abilities and interests.
