10 Point Success Model

The Faculty of Engineering at Queen's University has always had a very strong record for supporting our students. In the last few years we have quantified this into our 10 point student success model. This model brings together the key elements that students need to be successful over their years at Queen's.

1. Recruiting Advisors 

Helps prospectives students learn about Queen's Engineering before making that important decision. 

2. First Year Advisor 

The first point of contact for incoming students or all of their concerns and questions.

3. Section 900 & J Section

A safety net that allows students to retake failed fall semester course early inter term. This allows them to get back on track before entering second year. 

4. Douglas Tutorials

5. Free Choice of Discipline

Relieves the stress of competing with peers for a spot in their first choice program.

8. EngBounceBack

With these 10 points, the Queen's Community is unlike any other. Not only do we focus on giving students a strong academic and professional background, but this model provides students with the support system they need to succeed.
