Undeclared Engineering

Not yet sure about which engineering discipline is right for you? Consider our undeclared engineering entry option.

Students in Undeclared Engineering are given the opportunity to review the different disciplines of engineering offered at Ryerson through the common first-semester course, Introduction to Engineering. This course helps students to make an informed decision when selecting the engineering plan that is right for them.

Students in Undeclared Engineering must declare by December 1 in their first semester which of our eight engineering programs they intend to pursue. Because all of our engineering programs share a common first semester, undeclared students will be in-phase with the rest of their classmates in their chosen disciplines.
