Aerospace Engineering (BEng)

Date: Monday, August 28, 2017
Time: 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Location: Upper Gym

Description: All new engineering students are automatically enrolled in CEN 199: Writing Skills, which is a test that is graded on a Pass/Fail basis. CEN 199 is not an actual course; it is used solely to track the results of the mandatory Writing Skills Test (WST). A grade of ‘B’ or higher on the WST is needed to achieve a passing grade in CEN 199. Students cannot proceed into the third year of their engineering studies without passing CEN 199.
All students admitted into first-year engineering are required to write the mandatory Writing Skills Test (WST) during orientation week. There are no other English tests will exempt you from writing the WST. Students who pass the WST by achieving a grade of B or higher will receive a grade of “pass” in CEN 199, and may enroll in their chosen Liberal Studies courses. Students who do not pass the WST will receive a grade of INP (in-progress) in CEN 199, and will be required to enroll in LNG 111, LNG 112, LNG 113, or LNG 121, depending on the outcome of the WST assessment. These courses are writing-intensive humanities and social science courses designed to give students the opportunity to strengthen their foundations in communication. They also count as lower-level Liberal Studies courses.
Students who do not pass the first WST will have additional chances to pass the WST. The second test will be administered in November. The third test will be in May following the completion of the first-year engineering curriculum. The fourth test will be conducted during the following year’s orientation week with the next cohort of first-year engineering students.
Students who fail the second WST, or who need to further develop their language and writing skills after completing the LNG courses, may benefit from Ryerson’s online and/or in-class preparatory English Language courses offered through the G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education.

Students who do not pass the first WST will have additional chances to pass the WST. The second test will be administered in November. The third test will be in May following the completion of the first-year engineering curriculum. The fourth test will be conducted during the following year’s orientation week with the next cohort of first-year engineering students.
Students who fail the second WST, or who need to further develop their language and writing skills after completing the LNG courses, may benefit from Ryerson’s online and/or in-class preparatory English Language courses offered through the G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education.

Undeclared Engineering (First Year Studies Only) (BEng)

Date: Monday, August 28, 2017
Time: 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Location: Upper Gym

Description: All new engineering students are automatically enrolled in CEN 199: Writing Skills, which is a test that is graded on a Pass/Fail basis. CEN 199 is not an actual course; it is used solely to track the results of the mandatory Writing Skills Test (WST). A grade of ‘B’ or higher on the WST is needed to achieve a passing grade in CEN 199. Students cannot proceed into the third year of their engineering studies without passing CEN 199.
All students admitted into first-year engineering are required to write the mandatory Writing Skills Test (WST) during orientation week. There are no other English tests will exempt you from writing the WST. Students who pass the WST by achieving a grade of B or higher will receive a grade of “pass” in CEN 199, and may enroll in their chosen Liberal Studies courses. Students who do not pass the WST will receive a grade of INP (in-progress) in CEN 199, and will be required to enroll in LNG 111, LNG 112, LNG 113, or LNG 121, depending on the outcome of the WST assessment. These courses are writing-intensive humanities and social science courses designed to give students the opportunity to strengthen their foundations in communication. They also count as lower-level Liberal Studies courses.
Students who do not pass the first WST will have additional chances to pass the WST. The second test will be administered in November. The third test will be in May following the completion of the first-year engineering curriculum. The fourth test will be conducted during the following year’s orientation week with the next cohort of first-year engineering students.
Students who fail the second WST, or who need to further develop their language and writing skills after completing the LNG courses, may benefit from Ryerson’s online and/or in-class preparatory English Language courses offered through the G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education.
