New Students

The standard first year engineering curriculum has no electives. Students will register for these courses upon admission to the university. The required courses are as follows:

Fall Term:
Winter Term:
APSC 1073 and APSC 1070L APSC 1113 and APSC 1110L
APSC 1223 and APSC 1220L APSC 1413 and APSC 1410L
MATH 1013 and MATH 1010L MATH 1023 and MATH 1020L
PHYS 1013 and PHYS 1010L PHYS 1023 and PHYS 1020L
CHEM 1013 and CHEM 1010L CHEM 1023 and CHEM 1020L
  MATH 1323

Names and descriptions of all the courses listed above can be found under the 'Your First Year' tab or by clicking the 'Course Catalog' tab under 'Our Programs' in the main menu.

CAS Engineering students normally select an engineering discipline at the end of their first year, receiving a placeholder from Dalhousie and begin to specialize in their second year of study. For combined BASc and CAS students, this process typically occurs one year later with discipline selection occurring at the end of second year. A chart that shows all of the courses by discipline in the CAS program can be found here. 

Letter from the Director

"Hi Everyone,

Thanks for choosing to study Engineering at Acadia! We’re looking forward to meeting you soon in person, if you haven’t been here already on a tour or open house day. I’m confident that you will enjoy both the program and the general university environment here.

I look forward to meeting you in the fall.

Yours Truly,"
