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 1: All students will be assigned to either a 5 year Model A or 5 Year Model B Program.  Model Assignments are completed in the Mechanical General Office and a copy of your 5 year checklist with your model assignment will be provided to you prior to Tuesday July 4th via email.  Please notify the Undergraduate Student Advisor if you have not received your Model Assignment by July 4th.  If you plan to complete the program in 4 years please print off the 4 year Model below insert the course grades in the space provided for the courses you have completed and move to step 2.

Step 2: Make a fall and winter timetable using the 4year, 5 year Model A or the 5 year Model B checklist provided to you.  Decide how many courses you want to take per term based on your personal schedule (job, sports, etc.).  Then open or print a copy of the fall and winter term schedules.  Please note the Faculty of Engineering requires that students registered in fewer than three courses 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) - All Engineering students begin registering on or after July 20, 2016.  https://aurora.umanitoba.ca
