Our Engineering Program - First Year
Our first year Engineering program provides students with a unique learning opportunity, as it is a pathway to Laurentian University’s Bachelor of Engineering program.
Are you a college student? Visit the ONTransfer website to view more of our pathway agreements.
Algoma University and Laurentian University have partnered to facilitate a seamless transition for students who complete the first year at Algoma University to transfer directly to year two, three, and four in the Bharti School of Engineering at Laurentian University.
The Engineering Pathway provides the opportunity for first year students at Algoma U to study in areas such as mathematics, chemistry, and physics in courses that prepare them to enter the exciting world of Engineering. In year two, they will transfer directly to their second year of study in the Bharti School of Engineering at Laurentian University. Students choose their area of focus from three degrees: Chemical, Mechanical, or Mining
Each program has a co-op option available to eligible students. Work term opportunities are available in numerous locations throughout Ontario and beyond. For students wishing to return to Sault Ste. Marie for work terms, co-op options in Sault Ste. Marie are available to a select number of students each year.
Laurentian University has the highest post-graduation employment rate in Ontario at 95 per cent, ensuring graduates are well-positioned for a successful transition to the workforce in a high demand field.
The Bachelor of Engineering programs are accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.
