Undeclared Engineering (First Year Studies Only)

Is It for You?

Undeclared Engineering is an entry option to the bachelor of engineering programs that provides students with the opportunity to learn more about the various engineering disciplines before selecting a program of study. As all of our engineering programs share a common first semester, students in undeclared engineering will be in-phase with the rest of their classmates when they declare their discipline.
