BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING (CO-OP): A five year co-operative degree program composed of eight full-time academic terms and up to six full-time co-operative terms. There are six majors available (see list below), as well as the opportunity to to take offshore oil and gas engineering electives, which are available in all of our undergraduate degrees.
Students will have the opportunity to apply the engineering concepts and theories they learn in classrooms and laboratories to the real world as they embark on four work terms that will give them the equivalent of two years of real engineering work experience prior to graduation.
ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS TO ENGINEERING ONE: The common first year of the engineering program is known as Engineering One. Students will study mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering fundamentals which are common to each of the majors offered. Students must fulfill the following requirements to be considered eligible for admission to Engineering One directly from high school.
Students must be eligible to register for Math 1000 in Engineering One. In order to register for Math 1000 students must:
NOTE: Completion of International Baccalaureate Math (higher level) with a score of four or higher or completion of Advanced Placement Mathematics (Calculus AB or BC) with a score of three or higher will be accepted as equivalent credit for Math 1000.
PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY:
Students must register for Chemistry 1050 and Physics 1050 and 1051 in Engineering One.
Entry to Engineering One and to the majors offered by the faculty is competitive for a limited number of placements. Meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee a student's acceptance into the program. Final admission and readmission decisions rest with the Engineering Admissions Committee.
Students who intend to apply to the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, but are currently not eligible for Engineering One, should contact our Undergraduate Office at 709 864 8813 or email us at UndergradEngineering@mun.ca.
* The Math Department administers a diagnostic of basic skills in mathematics called the Mathematics Placement Test (MPT). The MPT has been carefully designed by mathematics educators to measure levels of competence in specifc core areas of mathematics - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of numbers, fractions, and algebraic expressions. For more information on the MPT visit www.mun.ca/math/mpt.
The Engineering Help Centre is designed specifcally for Engineering One students and is staffed by senior engineering students. The help centre is open Monday through Saturday and students can schedule a time or drop by.
The Division of Co-operative Education provides opportunities for students to gain relevant employment skills and realistic expectations of the work force; documented practical experience; a resumé; job search skills and a network of contacts upon graduation.
Graduates from the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science have gone on to pursue a variety of careers, including:
Graduates of Memorial University of Newfoundland's engineering programs have been enjoying the benefits of full accreditation with the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) since 1975. This accreditation places our programs among the very best in Canada. Accreditation of our process engineering major is anticipated to coincide with the graduation of our first class of process engineering students in 2013.
The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science is the first engineering school in Canada to offer a major in process engineering. It is also the only engineering school in North America to offer a major at the undergraduate level in ocean and naval architectural engineering and the only engineering school in the world to offer a co-operative ocean and naval architectural engineering program.
