Combining programs

Engineering can be combined with any other Faculty of Science or Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences major. It is possible to complete the requirements for both the BEng and BSc or BA in five years – or six if you also do an internship or the co-op program.

BSc/BEng

Students who meet the admission requirements for the Bachelor of Science program and the Bachelor of Engineering program are eligible to select this concurrent degree option. Students accepted will complete the 15-credit BSc and the first two years of engineering studies leading to the Diploma in Engineering concurrently in a period of three calendar years. At the end of the three year period, both the degree and the diploma will be awarded to successful candidates. This opportunity should appeal to students with career objectives in multi-disciplinary fields such as Biomedical Engineering, Environmental Science, or Materials Science (among others). It is thus possible to complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Engineering degrees concurrently in a time period of five years in total (or up to six years for Co-op programs).

BA/BEng

Students have the option to complete the 15-credit BA degree program and the first two years of engineering studies leading to the Diploma in Engineering concurrently in a period of three calendar years. At the end of the three year period, both the degree and the diploma will be awarded to successful candidates. It is also possible to complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Engineering and the Bachelor of Arts degrees concurrently in a time period of five years in total (or up to six years for Co-op programs).

Classes in the fourth and fifth years are those required to finish the Bachelor of Engineering degree.

Diploma of Engineering

Students who have successfully completed the academic study program in the first four terms in any of the disciplines may be eligible to apply for the Diploma of Engineering. This means a student must have a minimum GPA of 2.0, and have completed, with a minimum grade of D, the required courses as specified in the discipline curriculum.
