Engineering Students Seeking Admission to a Different Program

This information is for students who are currently registered in a discipline in the Faculty of Engineering. If you are not a current Engineering student and you are interested in applying or transferring into the Faculty of Engineering, please visit our Admission Requirements page, in Study with Us.

Each discipline has a limited number of spaces, and students who have not been admitted into a discipline previously, are given preference in the admission process. Students seeking a discipline change must meet the minimum admission requirements, and approved changes will be dependent on available space in the discipline.

Minimum Admission Requirements

To be considered for admission into a different discipline, students must complete a minimum of eight courses from their current discipline over two terms, and present a minimum two-term GPA of 3.0. Courses completed outside of the current discipline are not included in the GPA calculation for admission purposes. Students must complete their degree program in the six-year time limit from the date of their admission into their original discipline.

In the case where all program space is full, special consideration for admission will be given to a student who completes the minimum course load, and has a minimum GPA of 3.5.

Application Process

Complete the online University Admission, Readmission, or Internal Transfer application form. The deadline to apply is March 1. Students will be notified of the admission decision in late July.
