Back to Engineering


UNBetween is a transition-to-university camp and is an opportunity for you to:

  • experience the university setting early by staying in residence
  • attend real primer classes and laboratories in chemistry, mathematics, physics and computer science
  • learn more about the various engineering disciplines
  • receive advance standing credit for a fall term course
  • engage with student societies (e.g. Engineers Without Borders)
  • improve your skills in test-writing, note-taking, study and time-management
  • become aware of the various student support systems and people on campus
  • meet new classmates and share in some scheduled fun

It will be similar to a typical week for current engineering students, with added social events to balance out the experience. Students will have to complete assignments, labs and by the end of the week take tests in each subject. The program learning outcomes have been designed by our education specialists and our best instructors will be providing the lectures on key subject matter.

After the camp you will receive a personalized assessment of your learning strengths and guidance on where to seek help if ever required. Studies at other universities have shown that these transition camps greatly improve student performance in first year and beyond.
