Welcome to Bridge2ENGG

Your success is our top priority. So no matter where you are, we’re still offering you one of the world’s best engineering degrees this fall.

To make sure you’re fully prepared and confident in your ability to adapt to university-level math and science, we’re offering all applicants a unique suite of optional virtual summer programs.

You’ll further develop your skills in calculus and physics, and have access to live online tutorials, experiments, and mentorship. You will also learn time management and study skills, mental health strategies, and communication practices. 

This will be a great opportunity for you to meet your professors and fellow students, and learn about the array of resources that are available for your academic, social, and professional success. Community is everything in engineering, and we want to provide you with an opportunity to develop yours before the journey really begins in the fall. 

Bridge2ENGG is an optional program and is held during the summer months of July and August. The various streams within the program range in cost, and are delivered asynchronously, or live.  With different program styles and options, you can tailor Bridge2ENGG to meet your specific needs.

This is what students are saying about Bridge2ENGG!

“My favourite part of B2E was being in a positive and supportive environment where we debated over serious questions like whether a hotdog is a sandwich or not.” – Priya, Edmonton

"My favorite part of B2E was definitely getting a little sneak peak into what Engineering at the UofA is going to be like and meeting some other new people." – Yuki, Yellowknife 

"I found that B2E really helped me get to know people but also realize that these people have the same worries and concerns that I do. So it just kind of gave me more confidence; everyone is in the same boat and everyone just wants to make friends." – Alexa, Lethbridge

"The dynamic of the lecture, everyone’s just super chill all the time and open to questions and participation and jokes in the chat, both the participants and the instructors. That was really fun and that made me a lot less anxious for going into university." – Nyah, Edmonton

"I’m really glad I got to meet a lot of people going into the same program as me, and also that we weren’t just doing content, but also these real world applications and problem solving, I thought that was really fun." – Maia, Edmonton

"The experience gave me an idea of what’s expected of me at university so that was good for me going in. It was also good to see that everyone was going through this transition as well. And I also liked the real world application of the content." – Joel, Fort Erie

This program is not for university credit.

This program is available to all students who have applied to Engineering at Alberta, regardless of application status.

This program uses typical engineering examples to review the fundamentals of math and calculus required for engineering programs. The key focus is preparing you for MATH 100, MATH 101, MATH 102 or similar courses in other programs, and skills for engineering. 

Calculus Essentials will be delivered primarily asynchronously, meaning that you’ll be able to work through it at whatever pace you’d like. Synchronous workshops will also be held weekly to review harder subtopics within each of the concepts covered using typical engineering examples. All of your work will be supplemented with weekly office hours where you can chat with instructors and teaching assistants to have your questions answered.

Asynchronously, we provide:

  • Introduction to the fundamentals in the form of videos, simulations, example & solution packages, and note packages. 

Synchronously, we provide:

  • Live workshops by instructors to take your knowledge and confidence to the next level. 
  • Four workshops will be held in July, each geared at a different topic. 

This program will be available from July. Workshops will take place throughout the month, and asynchronous material will be available from July onwards.

This program is available to those students who have been admitted to the Engineering at Alberta first-year program or in first year transfer programs at institutions with transfer agreements with the faculty. 

Think of the B2E Full Program as your all-access pass to first-year engineering and university life. In addition to the full suite of B2E partial stream classes, you’ll have access to a virtual 4-week synchronous (real-time) course to better prepare you for university.

In this virtual setting, you will:

  • Build on your understanding of high school math, physics and calculus—and become familiar with key concepts taught in courses like Math 100, 101, Physics 130, and Engineering Physics 131 through demonstrations, tutorials, and lectures.
  • Meet your professors, fellow students, and key engineering support staff before fall classes begin.
  • Work in teams with fellow students, as you’re guided through some of the most important curricular and co-curricular skills for success in your first-year program.
  • Develop important academic habits and skills like time management, effective note-taking, goal setting, and self-care techniques.
