First Year Team

The First Year Office is here to help you make a successful transition to a new and exciting learning environment at the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering. Many general questions can be addressed by emailing our front line team at firstyear@engineering.utoronto.ca, and you can also make an appointment with your Academic Advisor through the Advising Portal for detailed information and advice.

Some of the topics we can assist you with are:

  • Questions about your program of study
  • Course load options and upper-year course information
  • Academic success supports
  • Personal matters and referrals to campus resources

U of T Engineering’s Advising Portal allows you to book advising appointments, review upcoming and past appointments and includes all appointment-related notes, referral information and links to University resources.
