Academic Orientation:
The First-Year Engineering Office welcomes our first-year engineering students at our mandatory academic orientation on Monday, August 27th at 10 am. Please arrive by 9:30am.



Writing Skills Test (CEN199)
All new engineering students must write the Writing Skills Test and will have their first opportunity to write the test on this day.

All new 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. Please remember to bring a pen and your student card or piece of photo ID with you to the test.
