[reps] Critique my Queens ESSAY! [reps]
- » Counsellor Resources
Associate Dean Brian Frank discusses the nature of Queen’s University’s well-rounded engineering program and what he looks for in applicants.
Why Queen’s Engineering?
One of Canada’s oldest and most prestigious engineering schools, the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Queen’s University is known for its high academic standards and proud alumni network.
But the program is so much more.
Our curriculum is built on The Engineering Design and Practice Sequence (EDPS)
The Engineering Design and Practice Sequence (EDPS) is a four-year sequence of courses for students in all engineering programs. It provides an opportunity to develop skills in design, creativity, economics, communications, and professionalism in engineering contexts. The first two years of the EDPS are delivered by faculty-wide project-based courses APSC-100 (EDPS I) and APSC-200/293 (EDPS II). The third and fourth years of the sequence (EDPS III and IV) are delivered by departments, and tailored to the disciplinary design and practice approaches. EDPS IV is a culminating capstone design project supervised by an engineering faculty member.

Personal Statement of Experience
We highly value the PSE
Admission at Queen’s is very competitive and we use the Personal Statement of Experience (PSE), Supplementary Essay (SE) (where required) and your academic record to help make admission decisions. For all programs, except Commerce, completion of the PSE is optional-but recommended. While we recommend that all applicants submit a PSE, applicants who have not submitted a PSE (with the exception of Commerce) will be considered equally for admission to Queen’s.
For applicants who fall within a critical range, we may consider your PSE, in support of your application to the program.

Challenge Examinations in Year One Subjects: Prior Learning Assessment
Exceptionally qualified applicants who feel that their preparation would allow them to follow an accelerated program of study are encouraged to write challenge examinations that are available in most of the First Year courses. These examinations are usually written during the first week of term in September and are only available to those students who have not yet started in any classes in Engineering and Applied Science. Application to write should be made to the First Year Program Assistant, (613) 533-2055, [email protected], before 31 July. There is a special fee for each Challenge examination (see the section on Fees).
Credit will be granted to those First Year courses in which competence is indicated by the results of the challenge examinations. A student may then elect to reduce the First Year curriculum by those courses for which exemption has been obtained, or elect to undertake an accelerated curriculum by replacing those courses with more advanced courses. Students who wish to preserve their eligibility for scholarship standing will need to formulate a program which provides the same or greater unit load as the standard First Year curriculum.

my engineering aspirations – Queens PSE Essay
In an essay of 300 words, or fewer (approximately 1950 characters with spaces), write about your goals for your time at Queens University and beyond. Your answer will be evaluated for content and writing style.
I feel that my conclusion is not strong enough, but I am limited to 300 words. Can anybody give me suggestions on how to shorten parts of the essay where information is not necessary and create a stronger conclusion while still limiting to 300 words? Thanks a bunch!
I believe that the best knowledge and opportunity for new experiences can enable me to fully peruse my engineering aspirations. Queens university is the most profound place for this, as there is a large diversity in the student body, many outstanding clubs to join, and a group of excellent professors. The Integrated Learning Centre particularly attracted me to the university. Hence, one goal is to be able to work inside this facility and develop new skills and build upon previous skills including leadership, teamwork, and communication and increase the depth of my learning. In essence, I will have a greater understanding of other engineering disciplines and of the role of professionals outside of engineering.
I am a person who devotes a part of my life into helping others, as that brings upon great satisfaction. During my time at Queens University, I would not only like to achieve high academic grades, but also be greatly involved with the community at Kingston and activities outside of academics. I believe that Queens University will provide me with this complementary aspect due to the amazing Queens University International Centre and my aspiration is to, one day, become a part of their team. Due to Queens great worldwide relations, I am looking forward to their international exchange opportunities and spend a part of my time studying or working abroad to build a larger international social network and build my understanding of other countries and their cultures.
After graduating from Queens University, I will apply the numerous academic and social skills that Ive learned into my career as an engineer. Along with that, I hope to fulfill my childhood dream: to create and give rise to something using my own skills that will enlighten the world and that I will be recognized and remembered for.
