Qualifying First Year: Your chance to explore Engineering!

If you are applying directly from high school or with no previous university experience, UAlberta Engineering offers a chance to learn about the entire profession during a common first year of Engineering courses (officially it's called the qualifying first year – when you're ready, learn more about it in the UAlberta Admissions website).

This first-year curriculum is designed to give you a solid foundation and introduce you to the vast opportunities available. You'll not only increase your academic capacity, you'll also discover how you can shape your future career.

From there, you will have the opportunity to choose a discipline and degree path that starts in second year, in both traditional four-year Engineering degrees as well as five-year Co-op Engineering degrees.

First Year Engineering Transfer Program

The Engineering at Alberta also offers one-year Engineering Transfer Programs through the following Alberta and British Columbia post-secondary institutions:

Students in the engineering transfer programs will take equivalent courses to those completed by first year Engineering students at the University of Alberta and will be considered for admission into a second year Engineering at Alberta program based on their first year results.

Students interested in an Engineering Transfer Program should apply directly to the transfer institution and applications will be assessed in accordance with that institution's admission requirements.

Additional information on transfer requirements can be found on our Transferring from an Engineering Transfer Program webpage.

Other Transfer Options

We also offer options for transferring in from other programs at the University of Alberta, Engineering Technologist Diploma programs, and other post-secondary institutions.
