FACULTY OF ENGINEERING AND APPLIED SCIENCE

ENGINEERING REGULATIONS

NOTE: A student may appeal against any decision of the Faculty as indicated below, and any Faculty regulation may be waived by Faculty Council or, on behalf of the Council, by the Appeal Committee or Undergraduate Studies Committee of the Faculty, as follows, provided that no General University Regulation is contravened by the waiver. Appeals, and applications from students for a waiver or other variance of the Engineering and Applied Science Regulations, must be submitted in writing to the Office of the Associate Dean (Undergraduate) for submission to the appropriate committee. Unless otherwise stated in the pertinent portion of the Regulations, the time limit for an application for the waiver or other variance, is as stated below in this Note.

(a) A waiver of an admission requirement may be granted by the Undergraduate Studies Committee upon recommendation by the Faculty Admissions Committee.

(b) Appeals against decisions of the Faculty Admissions Committee and appeals against promotion decisions of Faculty Council will be considered by the Faculty Appeal Committee. An appeal against promotion decisions of Faculty Council will normally only be considered upon presentation of evidence which has not been placed before Faculty Council. Any such appeal must be made within one month of the issue of the decision of the Admission Committee or within one month of the issue of results by the Registrar, as the case may be. When a student has requested a re-read of an examination paper which may affect an appeal that appeal must nevertheless be made within one month of the issue of the original results, and consideration of the appeal will be delayed until the result of the re-read is available.

(c) A request for exemption from a course or courses required in the Engineering programme, the substitution of a course by another course, or any other variation of the requirements of the academic terms, will be considered by the Faculty Undergraduate Studies Committee upon recommendation by the Associate Dean (Undergraduate) in an application concerning Core courses, or upon recommendation by the relevant Discipline Chair concerning all other courses. Any such request must be received at least one week before the last day to add courses in the semester in question.

(d) A request for exemption from a work term, and for any other variation in the requirements for the work terms, will be considered by the Faculty Undergraduate Studies Committee, upon recommendation by the Office of Co-operative Education.

Any such request must be received before or on the last day to drop courses without academic prejudice in the semester in question. Only when the circumstances which may justify a variance in the requirements occur unavoidably after this drop date, will a later application be entertained, at the discretion of the Committee.

An appeal against a decision by the Faculty Appeal Committee or by the Faculty Undergraduate Studies Committee of the Faculty should be directed to the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Studies.
