Undeclared Engineering (First Semester Studies Only)

Is it for you?

Undeclared Engineering is an entry option that provides an opportunity to learn more about the various engineering disciplines before selecting a program of study. As all of our engineering programs share a common first semester, you’ll be in phase with the rest of your classmates when you declare your discipline.

First-year classes

  • First semester is common: Introduction to Engineering, General Chemistry, Calculus I, Linear Algebra, Physics: Mechanics, and a lower level liberal studies course. It’s recommended that students complete their lower level liberals by the end of second year.
  • Second semester courses: Computer Programming Fundamentals or Digital Computation and Programming, Principles of Engineering Economics, Calculus II and Physics: Waves and Fields, plus courses specific to your chosen program.

Academic requirements

Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent with a minimum of six Grade 12 U or M courses including the following program-specific requirements.

Typically, a minimum overall average of 70% establishes eligibility for admission consideration; subject to competition individual programs may require higher prerequisite grades and/or higher overall averages:

  • English/anglais (ENG4U/EAE4U)
  • Advanced Functions (MHF4U)
  • Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U)
  • Physics (SPH4U)
  • Chemistry (SCH4U)
  • Note: The grades required in the subject prerequisites (normally 70%) will be determined subject to competition

Academic admission requirements for all other applicants are available at: Admission Requirements.
