Undergraduate alternate admissions pathways

We know high school doesn't always go to plan, this is why we offer FEAS. Our Faculty of Engineering Admissions Scheme (FEAS) is an alternate pathway for high school graduates. We’ll evaluate your ability in math, physics and other sciences as well as attitude and motivation towards studying engineering.
