These optional preparatory workshops are for students who’ll be taking the following courses during first year.
Undergraduate Engineering Welcome Day
In September, we host our annual Welcome Day for first-year students to get to know our faculty and each other. Come meet our student clubs and associations and receive more information about your program before courses begin! This event is mandatory for new students.
Optional events and activities
Join us for a day of workshops and activities to help you transition to university. Meet other engineering students and tour our buildings. This event is optional but open to all new Faculty of Engineering students.
Your student associations, the Engineering Student Society and the Computer Science Student Association, are planning a series of fun social activities during 101 Week to welcome you to the Faculty.
Find out what else is happening on campus during the first week of school.
