Application Deadline: March 1
BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING (CO-OP) A five-year mandatory co-operative degree program composed of eight full-time academic terms and a minimum of four full-time work terms. Students can choose from six available majors and may also 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 the classrooms and laboratories to the real world as they embark on a minimum of four work terms or a maximum of six that will give them the equivalent of two years of real engineering work experience prior to graduation.
The common first year of our engineering program is referred to as Engineering One. Students will study mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering fundamentals which are common to each of the majors we offer. The engineering courses in Engineering One introduce students to engineering problem-solving, analysis, design, communication and teamwork. Students will develop an understanding of different engineering fields and how engineering relates to real world issues.
ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS TO ENGINEERING ONE
Admission to the bachelor of engineering program 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.
In general, an average of more than 80 per cent in high school advanced math, chemistry, physics, and English can be considered a minimum for consideration. Student applications are processed on an ongoing basis in the year of application so students are encouraged to apply early. Decisions are based on final grades available at the time of application processing. If a student’s final grades for their grade 12 year are unavailable due to the date of processing, it is likely that the admission committee would make an initial decision based on a student’s grade 11 final grades.
MATHEMATICS Students must be eligible to register for Math 1000 in the fall semester of Engineering One. In order to register for Math 1000:
Students who complete Math 3208 (or an equivalent differential calculus course) may write the Calculus Placement Test (CPT). Successful students will receive credit for Math 1000 and can proceed to Math 1001. Students who are unsuccessful in their writing of the CPT will need to score at least 75 on the MPT to gain entry to Math 1000.
Transfer credit for Math 1000 will be granted for completion of International Baccalaureate Higher Level Mathematics with a score of four or higher or completion of Advanced Placement Mathematics (Calculus AB or BC) with a score of three or higher.
*The Department of Mathematics and Statistics 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 specific 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.
PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY Students must be eligible to register for Chemistry 1050 and Physics 1050 and 1051 in Engineering One.
Students who are not eligible for direct entry into Engineering One may complete Engineering One courses as a bachelor of science student, where space permits. These students can apply for direct acceptance into engineering academic term three.
Students who intend to apply to the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science but are currently not eligible should contact our Student Liaison Officer.
