Sault Ste. Marie students who want to study engineering can take their first year of studies at home before transferring to Sudbury.

Algoma University in Sault Ste. Marie and Laurentian University in Sudbury have struck an agreement to launch an engineering pathway, which will start in September, 2018.

The pathway agreement provides qualifying students access to a first year of study at Algoma University in Sault Ste. Marie, followed by direct access to the second year of engineering at Laurentian University in Sudbury in either mechanical, chemical, or mining engineering.

Students in the first year at Algoma University will study in areas such as mathematics, chemistry, and physics in courses that prepare them to enter the field of engineering.

In year two, they will transfer directly to their second year of study in the Bharti School of Engineering at Laurentian University.

Algoma will then offer four, one-year co-op placements for students in their third year of study. 

The Bachelor of Engineering programs are accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.
