Level 3: ENGG Camp is your opportunity to really get prepared for first year by tackling real-world Engineering problems in a group of other new students and senior students from the Faculty of Engineering.

This 3-week virtual program in August will tie in the academic skills with the soft skills, and have you working in teams to write reports, prepare presentations, and make prototypes in response to complex engineering challenges.

This is a great chance to engage further in Engineering concepts; expand your own curiosities and ideas of what it means to be an engineer, and meet other soon-to-be first-year Engineering students just like you. Each week will include a variety of different sessions:
  • Engineering Challenges: Teams will be presented with a worldly problem that requires the application of high school calculus and physics to propose solutions to real engineering challenges. Students will work together with mentorship from senior engineering students and academic staff to complete research, data analysis, and prototyping, before presenting their solutions at the end of the week.
  • Skills Sessions: Students will be required to use a variety of different software within their engineering degree. Through ENGG Camp, students will have an opportunity to refine old skills and develop new ones in: Report Writing in Word, Presentations in PowerPoint, Data Analysis in Excel, Referencing & Citations, etc.
  • Wellness Sessions: The University of Alberta is home to a wide variety of helpful programs and resources to support you as a student. ENGG Camp Wellness sessions are designed to connect you with the offices, people and processes that can help you throughout your university degree. There will be opportunities to meet your professors and key engineering support staff before fall classes begin; develop important academic habits and skills like time management, effective note-taking, goal setting, and self-care techniques; and to have your questions answered about academics, mental health through advice from senior students who recently experienced the transition from high school into university and more
  • Guest Speaker Sessions: ENGG Camp will bring together professionals in the engineering world to give you your first bit of experience networking. As well as see the vast spectrum of work engineers do, what it’s like to work in the engineering profession, and how to prepare yourself to start your career when you graduate.
