Waterloo switching engineering disciplines

A photo of PiggyAndy PiggyAndy
I've been admitted to Electrical engineering at Waterloo. However when I first applied, I did not really know which type of engineering I want to do. Right now, I'm more interested in Mechanical engineering than Electrical. Is it possible for me to switch before school starts in September? I heard it's possible to request to switch after first term but I that means I would have to retake courses or even start from day 1 (I really wouldn't want that! :S). Has anyone tried this or heard of someone who tried this?

Thanks in advance!

Petition for the switch in June, after all the acceptances have been tallied.

I actually sent an email to the admission office about it. They told me the earlier the more likely I will be able to switch. So for those of you out there who wants to switch programs in Waterloo, let them know ASAP!

Goes to show that contact the school directly is the best way to get the right answer. I put in my two cents, but that's exactly what it's worth.
