4.6 Transition Program for Students Entering First Year in Fall 2007
  1. Students may apply for direct entry from high school into a transitional first-year engineering program in the 2007-08 academic year. Such admission is on a competitive basis for a limited number of seats. The minimum requirements for direct admission from high school are general admission to the University and eligibility for registration in the following courses, by satisfying the prerequisites specified by the respective departments: Physics 1050, Chemistry 1050, and Mathematics 1000. Meeting these minimum requirements does not, however, guarantee admission to the program.

    Students who are admitted to the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science in Fall 2007 and who wish to seek entry to Academic Term 3 in the Fall semester of 2009 must follow the course of study in these tables during the 2007-08 and 2008-09 academic years.
