ENGINEERING AT LASSONDE
Your journey from creative to creator starts here.
Engineering Core First-Year
Students in Engineering begin their studies with a foundational common first-year. The first-year courses in applied mathematics, physical sciences, programming and engineering (design, ethics and communication) provide a strong base for branching out into the engineering majors.
While you are learning these engineering fundamentals, the common first-year allows you to explore the variety of engineering majors available, before you commit to a particular area for your second year. The first-year program provides information and examples from all engineering disciplines. At Lassonde, we believe that our common first year gives you time to explore your passions and find your fit.
The Engineering Core First-Year is available at both the Markham and Keele Campuses.

What is an Engineering Program Guarantee?
Secure your spot in your preferred Engineering program before you have to accept your offer of admission. This way you’ll know if you have a space reserved for you in your program of choice for your second year.
If you change your mind about your program during your first year, or if you aren’t sure now which
Engineering program you are most interested in – that’s ok – we guarantee that some of the spaces in each program will be available for students to choose after their first year. You can apply to change programs for your second year. These spaces are allocated based on your performance in your first year.
When we receive your application, you’ll be sent details on how to let us know what your preferred programs are.
In your first year as an Engineering student, you have the option to choose your preferred learning method for the fall term:
Traditional Model or Block Model.
Students in their final year participate in a Capstone Project. As a member of a project team, mentored by Lassonde professors, you will develop a solution to a real world problem which addresses one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. You can choose to define your own project or work on a challenge sponsored by an industry partner. In addition to nurturing your design, prototyping and assembly skills you can also gain valuable business case development experience.
