You don't have to worry what courses to pick when you start engineering. We've taken care of that for you. In your first year, you will take 10 courses in design, mathematics, science and engineering principles to prepare you for what's ahead.
We create class blocks to help you with scheduling. Once you pick a block, and enroll in the assigned courses, this allows you to share your classes with the same group of students all year. It's our way of helping you form study groups and make friends from the very beginning.
Choosing your major
Following a first year that exposes you to all of the engineering majors we offer, you enter your program of choice in your second year. Our Engineering Student Centre is here for you, helping you decide which major, and potentially minor, to pursue.
Guaranteed program placement
We offer guaranteed first choice of program to all students when they select their major in second-year. No need to apply to enter the engineering discipline you want to pursue - the choice is yours.
We're all about hands-on learning here. We build things in our classes like drawing devices or water filtration systems. If you learn best by doing, engineering at the University of Calgary is perfect for you.
