Find your engineering focus. If you are not certain of which engineering discipline you would like to pursue during your undergraduate degree, you are welcome to apply to our General Engineering program (with or without co-op). All engineering programs begin with a general first year that provides students flexibility in program choice. This allows you to learn more about each of our undergraduate programs prior to selecting your major (civil, electrical, environmental, industrial or mechanical) as you move into your second year of study. You’ll receive guidance from our world-renowned faculty, hands-on learning in a supportive environment and gain the skills needed for a successful career.
Sample Courses: Engineering Mechanics I, Engineering and the Profession, Engineering and Design, Engineering Thermofluids, Engineering Technical Communications, Physics, Chemistry, Linear Algebra, Differential Calculus, and Integral Calculus
Career Tracks: The General Engineering program is not a degree program from which you graduate; you must choose one of our five undergraduate programs before second year (civil, electrical, environmental, industrial, or mechanical engineering).
Professional Designation Available: PEng (Professional Engineer)
Course Requirements: ENG4U, MHF4U, SCH4U and SPH4U required. MCV4U is strongly recommended. A minimum average of 74% in all math and science courses except biology is also required.
Minimum Average: 74%*

"The co-op placements through the University of Windsor helped me see my potential and improved my chances in finding full-time positions after graduation. The classes that helped me the most in achieving my goals were Electronics, Analog Circuit Design, Electromagnetic Waves, Embedded System Design, and many other courses."
Hanan Mekawy BASc in Electrical Engineering 
"I chose engineering because I wanted to make a change in the world. The foundation of knowledge and engineering mindset I gained during my time at the University of Windsor has definitely done that for me. Be it my bioremediation research work in Northern Delhi, opportunities within the campus entrepreneurial community to develop my own business or simply participating in intramural sports leagues, there has been no shortage of opportunities for development and professional growth in the University of Windsor campus."
Dylan Verburg BASc (Honours) in Environmental Engineering 
With the programs you want and smaller student-to-faculty ratios, you can get the hands-on learning that’s sure to set you on a journey to a future you’ll be proud of.
