7 SUCCEEDING IN ENGINEERING

8 Some thoughts on first year Intro and general courses It gets more interesting – and easier! Smaller classes More applications Teamwork Design Projects

9 My First Year at McGill From CEGEP (Dawson College) Advantages / Disadvantages First auditorium experience at McGill Adjusting to University grading system Working alone / Working in groups

10 Succeeding in your courses Use Your Resources Classmates Teaching Assistants EPTS Professors Extra Practice Materials – Library databases – Online resources – Copi-EUS – Friends who took the class before

11 Succeeding in Engineering Don’t lose sight of why you chose Engineering Academic Advisors Mentors, older students – Em(POWE)r program – Getting involved in other activities – Design teams

12 Benefits of being in Engineering Comparison to Pre-Med and Science U0 courses Sense of community Abundance of free resources
