General Engineering Program

General Engineering Program

The General Engineering Program (GEP) is offered in addition to the Faculty of Engineering’s majors (Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Materials, Mechanical, Mining, and Software Engineering). The GEP permits students with strong mathematics, physics, and chemistry results in high school to pursue a common first-year curriculum without declaring a particular major program at the time of application. The GEP spans one academic year only (Year 0). Students then apply for placement and continue in an Engineering major program.

The GEP is not open to students with more than 6 transfer credits toward their engineering major (e.g., transfer credits from Advanced Placement (AP) exams or from courses taken at other universities).

Applicants who already know which major(s) they wish to study should apply directly for the major(s) rather than select the General Engineering Program option.
