In addition to meeting the requirements under UNIVERSITY REGULATIONS - Admission/Readmission to the University (Undergraduate), Applicants Who Have Followed the High School Curriculum of Newfoundland and Labrador, Admission Criteria, performance in advanced mathematics, chemistry, physics and English is of particular interest, and grades above 80% are normally required for consideration.

  • With careful planning the course load for the Engineering One requirements can be spread out over three semesters, to provide flexibility and additional time for a successful transition to the University and the Bachelor of Engineering degree program. However, as some courses are not offered in some semesters, a student should check with the appropriate academic unit to determine in which semester(s) each course is offered.

  • An applicant who is not admissible to Engineering One, but who is interested in pursuing an engineering degree, may complete the Engineering One course and promotion requirements, subject to normal course prerequisite and space requirements, and apply for admission to Academic Term 3.
