Application and orientation

To join ENGAP and access all we have to offer, you'll start by filling out an application form and participating in a summer orientation.

The ENGAP recruitment team is here to help you become a UM student whether you are applying directly from high school, are coming from an adult learning centre or are a mature learner. The ENGAP office is the first stop for prospective Indigenous engineering students applying to UM.

How to apply

People of Indigenous ancestry (Status, Non-status, Inuit, or Métis) with a strong aptitude in math, physics and chemistry who have some high school education in these areas are encouraged to apply. All students with an Indigenous background studying engineering at the University of Manitoba are eligible to be a part of ENGAP.

To apply, please fill out the application form (PDF) and submit it to our office before May 1.

Summer orientation

A two-week summer orientation with refresher courses in math and computer skills, as well as study and writing skills, helps students in their transition to university. If you have been away from high school, or did not have access to a rigorous program at the high school level, you may be required to take additional introductory courses in math, physics, computer science and chemistry to prepare you for first-year engineering courses. ENGAP students study all other courses in the regular engineering program of their choice.

In addition to upgrading and reviewing essential material, during the summer orientation you can meet with an advisor to decide on a program of study and become familiar with the university’s campus, policies and services. The orientation is also a great time to meet and build community with other first-year students.
