Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

High School Courses - Mathematics (3 years plus calculus), Chemistry (3 years), Physics (3 years), English (3 years). Alberta matriculation courses Chemistry 30, Pure Mathematics 30, Mathematics 31 (Calculus), English Language Arts 30-1, Physics 30.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Admission to Engineering Departments in Traditional and Co-op Routes: At the end of the first year. Departmental and program quotas exist. Admission based on first year GPA.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

From outside Canada: International students should contact the Admissions Division, Office of the Registrar, 201 Administration Building, Edmonton, AB T6G 2M7. Minimum TOEFL requirement: 580 (paper-based), or 86 (internet-based).
From US: May be considered for admission if they present a full academic high school program including three consecutive years of study in the appropriate subjects and Grade 12 standing or if they have an acceptable score on the Scholastic Aptitude and Achievement Tests in the appropriate subjects (i.e., SAT I and II scores) and Grade 12 standing.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

From other provinces and territories of Canada: Students from other provinces who have clear senior matriculation and who would be acceptable in a similar program in those provinces may be considered for admission at the University of Alberta. Such applicants must have completed senior matriculation courses in the same subject areas as required of applicants from Alberta high schools.

Residency Requirements

Students obtaining a Bachelor's Degree in Engineering are expected to complete at least half of the credits required through courses offered by the University of Alberta. Where a student has been accepted as a transfer student from another accredited engineering program at a Canadian university with the equivalent of six full-terms of transfer credit, the residence requirement may be reduced to one academic year.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer credit may be granted to applicants for admission who have completed one or more University level courses(s) at another recognized university, college, or technical institute. Special transfer credit arrangements exist with specific institutions. Students may complete the first year of Engineering at specified Alberta postsecondary institutions with Engineering Transfer Programs.

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 243
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 0

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Application for graduate admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies & Research must be made directly to the Department in which the student wishes to pursue a program of studies. Applicants to Master's Programs are normally required to have completed a four-year baccalaureate degree, or its academic equivalent, from an academic institution recognized by the University of Alberta. Applications to Doctoral Programs are normally required to have completed a master's degree, or its academic equivalent, from an academic institution recognized by the University of Alberta. An admission grade point average of 3 on most 4-point grading systems or B on most letter grading systems, based on the most recent two years of full time study (or equivalent) is required. However, individual Departments may have additional or higher admission qualifications. Applicants must be recommended for admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies & Research by the Department to which a student applies.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Graduate admission requirements vary by Department. Admission requirements include a baccalaureate degree or its academic equivalent from an academic institution recognized by the University of Alberta with a minimum average of 3.0 on most four-point grading systems in the most recent two years of full-time study.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

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.
