Less than one percent of engineers in Canada are Indigenous, and there is a strong demand for engineers with an Indigenous background. The Engineering Access Program (ENGAP) provides an opportunity for students of Indigenous ancestry who may not have had access to the resources to obtain the normal prerequisites required to get into, prepare for, and succeed in engineering. It is not a special degree; there is no difference in the engineering degree of an ENGAP student. However, the program involves a number of custom support mechanisms to help Indigenous students:
Social activities help students derive a sense of community within the Price Faculty of Engineering, in addition to the Faculty spirit that all engineering students enjoy.
