Go and speak with the school you may be interested in to see what the admissions process is for a cross-campus transfer. If you have not done so already, enroll in Engineering 100 to get a better understanding of engineering so that you can make the right decision.

What about Team projects, study groups, collaborative work?

Ans: Some classes require that you work with other students, e.g.  In lab groups, design teams, or as programming partners.  In our college it is also common to form study groups with other students in the course.  Collaborative study is a good thing, but in these situations you need a clear understanding of how to maintain your academic integrity, so that you can act accordingly.
