Internal Transfer to the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science

Information for Queen's students wanting to transfer into Engineering.  They can enter as one of two ways:

  • as a first-year student
  • as an upper-year transfer student

It's the number of first-year Engineering courses that students have that determines if they are first-year or upper-year admission.  Students who will have completed fewer than the equivalent of at least 6 of the 11 courses first-year Engineering students take should apply for first-year Engineering.  Those with at least 6 of the 11 first-year Engineering courses need to apply for upper-year Engineering.  See the following web site for a list of first-year Engineering courses: http://www.queensu.ca/calendars/appsci/First_Year_Studies.html

APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR FIRST-YEAR APPLICANTS:   1 FEBRUARY

APPLICATON DEADLINE FOR UPPER-YEAR APPLICANTS:  1 JUNE

Applications must be submitted through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre using a 105D Application.

To be eligible for admission consideration to the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, students in other Faculties or Schools at Queen's University must have taken Ontario 4U Chemistry, 4U Physics and 4U Calculus (or their equivalents).

The chart below indicates equivalencies for first-year mathematics and science courses for the Faculty of Arts & Science and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science.

ARTS AND SCIENCE COURSE  REQUIRED MINIMUM MARK  ENGINEERING EXEMPTION 
PHYS 104 or 106 1.0 or D APSC 111 + 112 
CHEM 112 or 116 2.7 or B- APSC 131 + 132 
CISC 101 or 121  1.0 or D APSC 142 
GEOL 104 1.0 or D  APSC 151 
MATH 120  1.0 or D  APSC 171 + 172 
MATH 121, 122, or 126  2.0 or C APSC 171 
MATH 121 or 122  3.0 or B APSC 171 + 172 
MATH 110 or 111  1.0 or D APSC 174 
MATH 112  2.0 or C APSC 174 

Note:  in order to be considered for admission into the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, applicants must have a minimum GPA of 2.7 and no failures in relevant courses on their university transcript.  Some Engineering programs, such as Mechanical and Chemical, are more competitive, because of limited space for upper-year transfer students.

A list of upper-year Engineering programs can be found on the Engineering and Applied Science course calendar
