Arrangements with Other Institutions
82.16 Arrangements with Other Institutions
82.16.1 Engineering Transfer Programs at Alberta Colleges
Students may complete their first year of Engineering at any of the following Alberta postsecondary institutions: Grande Prairie Regional College, Keyano College (Fort McMurray), University of Lethbridge, Medicine Hat College, Grant MacEwan College (Edmonton), Mount Royal College (Calgary), and Red Deer College. Students who complete the Engineering Transfer Program at one of these institutions may apply to enter second-year Engineering at the University of Alberta and will be considered for program placement on an equal basis with continuing University of Alberta Engineering students.
82.16.2 Transfer Credit Agreement Between the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary Faculties of Engineering
The first year engineering programs at the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary are similar but not identical. The first year program requirements at the two universities, effective with the 2002–2003 academic year, are indicated below. Where there is a course entry for both the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary, these courses are equivalent and qualify for transfer credit. Students who completed the first year program at the University of Calgary prior to the 2002–2003 academic year and are interested in a transfer to the University of Alberta should consult the Faculty of Engineering concerning transfer credit.
Two Chemistry Courses
Engineering Statics (See Note 1)
Engineering Dynamics (See Note 1)
EN PH 131
(See Note 1)
Two Calculus Courses
Physics (Waves and Optics)
(See Note 2)
Physics (Electricity and Magnetism)
(See Note 3)
Orientation To The Engineering
Profession: 2 Courses
Design and Communications
(See Note 4)
Complementary Studies Elective
(See Note 5)
The University of Calgary offers a second Engineering Statics/Dynamics course in second year ENGG 349. ENGG 205 and ENGG 349 at the University of Calgary is equivalent to ENGG 130 and EN PH 131 at the University of Alberta.
The University of Calgary offers an equivalent course, PHYS 369, as part of the second year program.
The University of Alberta offers an equivalent course, PHYS 230, as part of the second year program. Students entering the Civil, Mining, Computer Process Control option in Chemical and Petroleum Engineering programs at the University of Alberta cannot receive degree credit for PHYS 259 from the University of Calgary or PHYS 230 from the University of Alberta.
The University of Alberta offers no directly equivalent courses. Students completing ENGG 251/253 at the University of Calgary will only receive transfer credit for ENGG 100/101.
Complementary studies electives in first year are courses selected from the humanities (excluding languages) or social sciences. English courses are acceptable.
82.16.3 Transfer from Alberta Technical Institutes
Students from Alberta Institutes of Technology (e.g., NAIT, SAIT) should refer to the Alberta Transfer Guide and the Faculty of Engineering website for information on admission policies and potential transfer credit.
82.16.4 Geomatics Engineering at the University of Calgary
The University of Calgary offers a four-year program leading to a BSc in Geomatics Engineering. After appropriate practical experience, a graduate may register as a Professional Surveying engineer and/or a Provincial and/or Canada Lands Surveyor.
A student interested in a career in geomatics (surveying) may take the first year of Engineering at the University of Alberta. On successful completion of the first-year program, students would be admitted to the second year of Geomatics Engineering at the University of Calgary. For information regarding Geomatics Engineering at the University of Calgary, please write the Dean, Faculty of Engineering, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta T2N 1N4.
82.16.5 BSc Program in Agricultural Engineering Bioresource Engineering
The University of Saskatchewan offers a four-year program leading to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BE) with Agricultural and Bioresource Engineering as a field of specialization. Students wanting to transfer to the Agricultural and Bioresource Engineering program at the University of Saskatchewan following one year of engineering at the University of Alberta may be eligible to receive scholarship funds from the University of Alberta (MacHardy-Stephanson Fund) to support their transfer. For additional information about the program, contact the Head, Agricultural and Bioresource Engineering, College of Engineering, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, S7N 5A9 or access the website: www.engr.usask.ca/dept/age/
82.16.6 Exchange Program with École Polytechnique
Students in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Alberta may participate in an exchange program whereby one year of their studies is completed at École Polytechnique in Montréal. École Polytechnique, affiliated with the University of Montréal, is one of the premier schools of engineering in Canada and is the largest French-language school of engineering in the country. Students must have demonstrated superior academic ability and be fluent in French. The exchange normally takes place in a student's third year. Exchange programs are available in all engineering programs except Petroleum Engineering. Please consult the Associate Dean (Student Services), Faculty of Engineering, for more information.
