UM Engineer Access Program
There is a strong demand throughout Canada for engineers with an Indigenous background. The Engineering Access Program (ENGAP) provides opportunities for Indigenous students to get into, prepare for and succeed in the Price Faculty of Engineering. ENGAP students receive the same degree as other engineering students, but the program involves a number of custom resources. Through its warm and supportive community and staff, ENGAP offers its students a home away from home.
The Engineering Access Program provides many different resources to ENGAP students and graduates, ranging from counselling services, financial support, professional tutoring and peer support activities to annual events. Our services include:
- Academic: We can help you select and register for courses, provide free tutoring for all courses and offer upgrading courses to help you be better prepared for engineering.
- Personal: Our counsellor provides assistance with personal and family counselling, resume and job search advice and help locating daycares and accommodations as required.
- Financial: We’ll help you obtain financial support through numerous bursaries and scholarships, including the ENGAP Scholarship and Bursary Initiative.
- Social: Social activities help you find a sense of community within the Price Faculty of Engineering, while group study spaces let you work alongside your peers.
