admission requirements
Admission Requirements
  • MCT4C minimum for almost all programs
  • Exceptions are Woodworking and IT programs
  • 10% bonus given to U level math courses in grade 11 and 12 (except MDM4U)
  • 10% bonus given to U level English courses in grade 11 and 12
  • Applicants academically ranked based on math and English marks
why mct4c
Why MCT4C?
  • MAP4C does not adequately prepare the students for engineering technology
  • College technology programs are rigorous and intensive
  • On average, students are more successful if they have advanced/academic math preparation
rigour of eng it programs
Rigour of Eng/IT Programs
  • 22 – 25 hours of class per week
  • 6 – 8 courses per semester
  • 15 week semesters
  • weekly assignments in most courses
