WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
PRE-PROFESSIONAL TRANSFER PROGRAM IN ENGINEERING
Campus:Lethbridge or Lethbridge and Calgary
Complete the qualifying year of your University of Alberta or University of Saskatchewan engineering degree at uLethbridge
This transfer program allows you to complete the first year of your engineering degree here at the University of Lethbridge. After the successful completion of your courses, you will transfer to either the University of Alberta (UAlberta) or the University of Saskatchewan (uSask) to complete your degree.
We have developed a number of courses specific to each institution that will give you the best start to your engineering degree. You must take the appropriate course package for the institution to which you plan to transfer. You can learn about the courses on the program planning guides highlighted below.
While this pre-professional program will transfer seamlessly to either uAlberta or the uSask, it is not exclusive to these two universities. The courses you take may be used to transfer to other engineering programs. You should seek advice from your intended university.
Students pursuing a future in engineering have a number of opportunities available to them while at uLethbridge including co-operative education, international exchanges, independent and applied studies as well as volunteer opportunities.
uLethbridge is the only university in Alberta to offer co-operative education to all majors in the arts & sciences, at both the undergrad and grad level. To learn more about this exciting opportunity, visit the Co-operative Education webpage.
University of Alberta | Entrance to the second year of your engineering program at the University of Alberta is contingent upon a minimum first year GPA of 2.5. Acceptance to specific engineering streams at the University of Alberta is competitive and may require a GPA higher than 2.5. Students presenting a GPA lower than 2.50 may be offered admission based on available seats. Students are expected to complete the required 12 courses within one academic calendar year. Please note that ENGG 1100 and ENG 2100 (1.5 credits each) are not full courses, and have been designed to help students with study skills and offer other advice that will aid in their other courses. In addition to the above, applicants are expected to have completed the following senior high school courses: Chemistry 30, English Language Arts 30-1, Mathematics 30-1 or Pure Mathematics 30, Mathematics 31 and Physics 30. Admission to this program is competitive, and typically an admission average of 75% or higher on these courses and a minimum grade of 70% on each of these courses is required.

University of Saskatchewan | Entrance to the second year of your engineering program at the University of Saskatchewan is contingent upon a minimum first year GPA of 2.5. Students presenting a GPA lower than 2.5 may be offered admission based on available seats. Students are expected to complete the required courses within one academic calendar year. In addition to the above, applicants are expected to have completed the following senior high school courses: Chemistry 30, English Language Arts 30-1, Mathematics 30-1 or Pure Mathematics 30, Mathematics 31 and Physics 30
There is some flexibility with transferring to uSask in that you do not need to complete all the courses listed above in one year and can spread them out over two years. This is a great option for students who have other obligations while at the University of Lethbridge (e.g. work, family).
