7.2 Promotion Status (Engineering One)
  1. The minimum requirements for promotion to Academic Term 3 are:

    1. an Engineering One promotion average of at least 65%. The promotion average is defined as the overall average of the following nine courses: Mathematics 1001, Mathematics 2050, Physics 1051, Chemistry 1050, English 1090 or the former English 1080, ENGI 1010, ENGI 1020, ENGI 1030 and ENGI 1040; and

    2. a grade of at least 55% in each of the above nine courses.

  2. Meeting the minimum Engineering One promotion requirements does not guarantee promotion to Academic Term 3.

  3. A student who meets the promotion requirements and has an Engineering One promotion average of at least 70% will be guaranteed promotion to Academic Term 3.

  4. A student who meets the promotion requirements and has an Engineering One promotion average of less than 70% will be promoted to Academic Term 3 as Faculty capacity permits.

  5. To be considered for promotion to Academic Term 3 no required course in Engineering One may be failed more than once. If a student fails one of the Engineering One courses more than once the student will be withdrawn from the Engineering program.

  6. In order to remain in the Engineering program, a student admitted to Engineering One must complete the requirements for promotion to Academic Term 3 before the end of the academic year following the academic year of admission. Therefore, a student in Engineering One will have at most two years to complete all requirements for promotion to Academic Term 3.

  7. A student who fails to meet the requirements for promotion to Academic Term 3 before the end of the academic year following the academic year of admission will be withdrawn from the Engineering program.

  8. Promotion from Engineering One guarantees admission to one of the six majors, but not necessarily to a student’s preferred major. The Faculty reserves the right to establish the capacity of each major. The Faculty also reserves the right to guarantee admission into a particular major at the time of admission into the Engineering program. A student promoted to Academic Term 3 with an Engineering One promotion average of 75% and greater is guaranteed a preferred major.

  9. A student is required to submit a Major Preference form, indicating a preferences for major in rank order, by April 1 in the academic year in which the student expects to complete the requirements of Engineering One.
