DescriptionAlgoma University’s first year is a pathway to Laurentian University’s Bachelor of Engineering program. The Engineering Pathway provides qualifying students access to a first year of study at Algoma University in Sault Ste. Marie, followed by a seamless transition to the second year of Engineering at Laurentian University in Sudbury in either Mechanical, Chemical, or Mining Engineering. Students in the first year at Algoma University will 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.
