Math Preparation

The Faculty of Engineering has put into place a math preparation course known as MTHEL 99 (First-Year Engineering Readiness) to help refresh your knowledge of high school mathematics and prepare you for academic success.

In the past, weak mathematical abilities and missing background topics have been identified as a cause for poor academic performance. Possible missing background topics are even more relevant this year, given that many incoming students have had their final year of studies impacted by the pandemic.

We are providing students with MTHEL 99 to assess their personal level of math preparation and enable them to easily fill in any missing background knowledge.
