Students must apply for general admission to SFU and also directly to the School of Engineering Science (ENSC). Students must meet SFU’s:

  • General entrance requirements. See the link for SFU Admission Requirements
  • Program specific requirements. For students transferring from Langara, a minimum of 24 units of transferable coursework is required including:
    • At least one mathematics course: MATH 152, 232 (or 240)
    • At least one computing course: CMPT 128, 225 (or 125)
    • At least one physics course: PHYS 121 (or 221)

Applicants must have a high GPA in a full-time course load. In addition, most Engineering Science courses are not available at Langara. Students are advised to transfer to SFU after completing the courses below

At SFU, a C- grade or better in prerequisite courses is required to enroll in Engineering Science courses. In addition, students are required to have a minimum CGPA of 2.4 to enroll in 300 level Engineering Science courses
