Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Same as Canadian students.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as resident students.

Residency Requirements

To qualify for a degree, a transfer student must successfully complete at least four regular sessions of full-time study and a minimum of 10 full courses or equivalent while registered in the Schulich School of Engineering.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer applicants are considered for admission to the first year common program, or they may be eligible to be considered for direct admission to a degree major (e.g. Civil, Mechanical, Electrical) in second year if they are awarded at least eight transfer credits for the U of C engineering first year technical courses. Transfer students who are eligible for consideration for direct admission to a degree major will be admitted to the departmental program based on their GPA on the most recent eight to ten university transferable technical or scientific courses. If a transferable course is repeated, only the first passing grade (C- or better) will be counted in this GPA. The GPA required for admission may be different for each degree major.

Transfer Conditions and Minimum Requirements:

(a) 6 or more single semester university level courses: Admission GPA = *2.50 or more calculated on most recent courses up to 10; Matriculation Average will not be considered.
(b) 3-5 single semester university level courses: Admission GPA = *2.50 or more AND Matriculation Average = *75% or more.
(c) 0-2 single semester university level courses: Matriculation Average = *75% or more; Admission GPA will not be considered.
(d) 2 year Engineering Diploma or Applied Technology Degree: Cumulative GPA = *3.00 or more on the diploma or applied technology degree.

*Minimum requirements do not reflect the final cut-offs which are determined in August. In recent years the final cut-offs have been significantly higher than the minimum requirements.
Apart from post-secondary courses, all transfer applicants must present matriculation (Grade 12) standing in the five specified high-school subjects including English, Mathematics, Calculus, Physics and Chemistry. Admission matriculation average, when applicable, is calculated on these five required matriculation (Grade 12) subjects.

For transfer applicants who are deficient of one or more of the required high school subjects but have completed similar courses in post-secondary school, the Faculty and/or the Admissions Office will assess whether the material of the deficient grade 12 course(s) has been covered by any completed post-secondary course(s).

Apart from matriculation standing in Grade 12 English, all applicants must demonstrate English language proficiency for the purpose of admission. Please refer to http://www.ucalgary.ca/admissions/elp.html for detail.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

Research Description By Engineering Research Center

Alberta Ingenuity Centre for In Situ Energy

The AICISE brings together the world's leading innovating scientists, industry and other partners to develop more efficient, cost-effective and sustainable processes and practices for in situ recovery and upgrading of Alberta's oil sands resources, with extremely low environmental impacts. The proposed research is both transformative and necessary. AICISE’s vision for integrated in situ recovery and catalytic upgrading responds to the need for strategic game changing research that will lift the oil sands and heavy oil industry to a higher level of economic and environmental performance. The Centre holds the potential for transforming the recovery and conversion of bitumen and heavy oils to value added fuels into an industry with significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions and water utilization.
The research team is integrated and multidisciplinary (Petroleum engineering, upgrading
chemical engineering, geology and geological engineering, bitumen characterization, and numerical modeling), and leverages important international academic collaborations and partnerships with global oil companies.
HQP development by AICISE emphasize multidisciplinary training, providing students with knowledge and skills from disciplines such as chemical and petroleum engineering, geology,
chemistry, physics and computer modeling. The applied research conducted is the ideal vehicle for HQP training. Students work with cutting‐edge technologies, develop practical solutions and gain valuable experience by interfacing with industry.
Industry is also involved in the training of students through student presentations of research progress to industry partners, feedback from the companies to students, and mutual discussion of issues arising from the research. Interactions of students with industry and government partners leads to job opportunities for graduating students and provides the industry and government partners of AICISE with a pre‐screened supply of highly qualified employees.
Our international partners provide students with exposure to experts and opportunities abroad. The educational experience is significantly enhanced by enabling the students to work with some of the best researchers in the world through shared supervision, travel and work experience, and workshops and meetings.

Pipeline Engineering Center (PEC)

This center's goal is to provide support and direction to industry in pipeline engineering. The center addresses two specific aspects in this endeavor, first education and second research.

In the educational aspect a number of approaches are taken, being the development of graduate classes in the pipeline engineering area, the establishment and running of short courses, the development and delivery of training courses, the hosting of seminars and workshops and the publication of monographs. All of these work towards the transfer of knowledge, such that industry is kept up to date in the latest information pertaining to the pipeline area. Specializations for graduate degrees in engineering can be obtained in "pipeline engineering" throughout the various Engineering Departments and the development of a Engineering Faculty masters degree in pipeline engineering is being developed. Certificates and continuing education units, CEU's, are established for the various training and short courses. Further the center acts to promote and develop an awareness of pipeline engineering.

In the research aspect the center strives to lead the way in the generation of new knowledge in the pipeline engineering area. It accomplishes this through the pursuit of leading edge knowledge and the development of information for application in the pipeline area. It will work towards establishing engineering knowledge in new areas such as multi-phase flow, improvements in safety and environmental control, and hydrogen transmission among others. In the pursuit of knowledge the training of graduate students is an integral part or this program.
