Engineering Explorations

As part of the first-year engineering program, students attend Engineering Explorations events held by the engineering departments. Explorations allow students to confirm their interest in their chosen major. For undecided students, these explorations provide an opportunity to make an informed decision about their discipline.

Transition to a Major

Undergraduate academic advisors guide students by helping them to understand requirements that must be met before moving to their department of choice.

“Like many students, when I started university,
I had only a vague notion about what my major would be.
So, I selected courses that would count in any major.”
