Admission Requirements

Admission Requirements

Applicants must hold an advanced technology diploma (3 year) or equivalent in related technology field with a minimum cumulative GPA of 75% in one of the following fields: 

  • Chemical Engineering Technology 
  • Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology 
  • Manufacturing Engineering Technology 
  • Mechanical Engineering Technology

Additional Notes: 

  •  If your cumulative GPA is between 70-75%, or if it has been more than 10 years since you completed your qualifying education, please consider applying to the Technology Certificate program which, upon completion, may qualify you for admission into the B.Tech. Degree Completion program.
  • Applicants with educational backgrounds equivalent to those completing advance level college diplomas, including internationally educated applicants, will be considered on an individual basis and are encouraged to apply. We cannot pre-assess candidates for admission prior to becoming applicants.
  • You must submit transcripts for ALL post-secondary work that you have completed (i.e. at a university or college in Canada or internationally), including work in any non-technology field completed prior to or after your advanced diploma.

Not finished college yet? In order to finalize your admission, we require final transcripts and indication that an advanced diploma has been granted. For this reason, students cannot begin in the term immediately following college studies.

Co-op and Experiential Learning

Gaining relevant co-op experience is an essential part of earning a B.Tech. degree. This required program 8 month co-op component will allow students to gain valuable work experience and career connections.

While support and guidance is available through the Engineering Co-op and Career Services to assist students with searching for jobs, resume writing and interviewing skills, it is ultimately the responsibility of the student to satisfy the co-op program requirement.

Students who have completed college work terms or who have work experience in a related field can be assessed for a waiver for the co-op requirement.
