This Engineering degree transfer pathway allows students from UCSI University in Malaysia to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree from the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada by completing a portion of their degree studies at UCSI University in Malaysia and then transferring to The University of Manitoba for the remainder of their degree program. The maximum number of courses that can be transferred is from nineteen to twenty-two depending on the program and which courses are offered at UCSI.

Students can transfer to the University of Manitoba (UM) anytime during their studies as long as thy complete a minimum of eight Year 1 courses at UCSI. To be accepted to UM the student must obtain an overall GPA of 2.7 and pass all courses with a minimum grade of C. All courses taken at UCSI are transferred to UM once they have been accepted. The program is open to students from Malaysia as well as other countries in East Asia and Africa where UCSI University recruits.

As a university, UCSI has autonomy with their courses and U of M assesses each course periodically for equivalency to courses taught at U of M. Additionally, UM makes yearly visits to UCSI to assess the quality of education and meet wth administrators, instructors and students in the program.

The current pathway applies to all of the programs in the Faculty of Engineering:

  • Biosystems Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering (including the Aerospace Option and Manufacturing Option)

The pages within this section describe the pathway and the courses that the students can take at UCSI to transfer successfully to the University of Manitoba. This program has been designed to meet Faculty residency requirements and specific Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) requirements. An equivalency matrix of the courses for each program can be found at the following links. Both institutions often modify their program so the student is encouraged to contact the program coordinators for updated transfer requirements.
