Engineering One

The common first year of the engineering program is referred to as Engineering One. It comprises courses in mathematics and basic science (physics and chemistry), as well as courses covering engineering fundamentals which are common to each of the majors. The engineering courses in Engineering One introduce students to engineering problem-solving, analysis, design, communication, and teamwork. Students will develop an understanding of the different engineering specialities, as well as the interdisciplinary nature of engineering practice.

Course Planning Guidelines and Semester Information

Courses in Engineering One build on the material presented in high school and introductory university courses. Careful consideration for these dependencies can prevent the need for extra courses that could increase the amount of time needed to earn a Bachelor of Engineering degree. The following links provide guidelines to help plan course schedules as well as information specific to each semester.

Promotion to Academic Term 3

Effective 2010-2011, all students must successfully complete the following requirements of Engineering One prior to being promoted to Academic Term 3:

  • a grade of at least 55 per cent in each of MATH 1001, MATH 2050, PHYS 1051, CHEM 1050, ENGI 1010, ENGI 1020, ENGI 1030 and ENGI 1040
  • a grade of at least 55 per cent in one of the ENGL 1080, ENGL 1020, ENGL 1000
  • an average of at least 65 per cent over the above nine courses

Students admitted to Engineering One must complete the requirements for promotion to Academic Term 3 before the end of the academic year of admission in order to remain in the Engineering program. Students who fail to meet the requirements for promotion to Academic Term 3 before the end of the academic year of admission will be deemed to have withdrawn from the Engineering program.

Work Term 1

Students who complete all Engineering One requirements by the end of the Winter Semester may be eligible for a Work Term in the Spring Semester. In that case, the student must apply to determine eligibility and the course ENGI 200W Professional Development Seminars must also be completed by the end of the Winter Semester.

Assignment of Major

Students completing the requirements of Engineering One are required to apply for their major assignment by the last day of March of the academic year of admission, indicating their preferences for major in rank order. All Engineering students who meet promotion requirements from Engineering One at the end of the academic year of admission will be guaranteed a place in Academic Term 3, although not necessarily in the preferred major. The faculty reserves the right to limit the number of spaces available in each major. The faculty also reserves the right to guarantee admission into a particular major at the time of admission into the engineering program.
