Information for New Undergraduates

Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering Department!

Congratulations on a successful first year.  We hope you will find your time with us both challenging and enjoyable. The following information will help you plan your fall and winter timetable, understand how to register for classes using Aurora, and hopefully answer any other questions about being a student at the University of Manitoba!

Step 2: Make a fall and winter timetable using the checklists.  Decide how many courses you want to take per term. Please note the Price Faculty of Engineering requires that students registered in fewer than three courses (or 9 credit hours) in a term must be approved by the Department Head.  (See University of Manitoba Calendar, section 3.3)   

Step 3: Check your initial registration access time on your Aurora account (registration date and time is based on your Degree GPA). Registration for all  Engineering students is usually on or after July 15th each year.  https://aurora.umanitoba.ca
