FACULTY OF ENGINEERING AND APPLIED SCIENCE

ADMISSION MODES

Direct Entry: Students may apply for direct entry into first year Engineering when they apply to the University from high school. Direct admission from high school is normally based upon the student being admitted to the University and having sufficient prerequisites in Mathematics and the Physical Sciences to be able to complete First Year Engineering courses in their first year of University.

Fast Track: Exceptionally well prepared students may apply for direct entry into second year Engineering (Term 1) from high school. Direct admission into second year is normally based upon a student being admitted to the University, having advanced placement equivalent to University credit in Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry and having an admission average of at least 80% in the final year of high school.

Entry from within the University: students registered in other programmes within, or other campuses of, the University may apply for entry into second year Engineering (Term 1). Such entry is normally based upon the same criteria as promotion from first year Engineering into second year (see section 5) under Examinations and Promotions, except that a third course chosen from one of the departments listed in section 5.c under Examinations and Promotions may be substituted for Engineering 1000; students will be required to make up Engineering 1000 in Term 1.

Bridging Programmes: The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science has bridging programmes which allow certain diploma graduates to enter the Engineering programme with advanced standing. In each case the bridging programme consists of two academic terms: Fall and Winter Semesters, followed by entry into Academic Term 4 of the appropriate discipline.

To be admitted to the bridging programme students must have graduated from the diploma programme with a cumulative average of at least 75%.

The currently approved bridging programmes are:

(1) Civil Engineering Technology from the College of the North Atlantic to the Civil Engineering Programme.

(2) Electrical Engineering Technology or Electronics Engineering Technology from the College of the North Atlantic to the Electrical or Computer Engineering Programme.

(3) Naval Architecture Programme or Marine Systems Design Programme at the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University to the Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering Programme.

(4) Techniques d'architecture navale at the Institut maritime du Québec, Rimouski, to the Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering Programme.

Details of individual course requirements are outlined in the preceding charts.

Other Entry: students are occasionally admitted to later terms in Engineering from other institutions. Such entry is normally based on a detailed analysis of the student's record and is handled on a case by case basis.
