BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING (CO-OP) A five-year mandatory co-operative degree program composed of eight full-time academic terms and a minimum of four full-time work terms. Students can choose from six available majors and may also take offshore oil and gas engineering electives, which are available in all of our undergraduate degrees.

Available majors:

  • Civil engineering
  • Computer engineering
  • Electrical engineering
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Ocean and naval architectural engineering
  • Process engineering

Students will have the opportunity to apply the engineering concepts and theories they learn in the classrooms and laboratories to the real world as they embark on a minimum of four work terms or a maximum of six that will give them the equivalent of two years of real engineering work experience prior to graduation.


The common first year of our engineering program is referred to as Engineering One. Students will study mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering fundamentals which are common to each of the majors we offer. The engineering courses in Engineering One introduce students to engineering problem-solving, analysis, design, communication and teamwork. Students will develop an understanding of different engineering fields and how engineering relates to real world issues.

Students must fulfil the following requirements to be considered eligible for admission to Engineering One directly from high school:

MATHEMATICS Students must be eligible to register for Mathematics 1000 in Engineering One. In order to register for Mathematics 1000 students must:

Note: Completion of International Baccalaureate Mathematics (higher level) with a score of four or higher; or completion of Advanced Placement Mathematics (calculus AB or BC) with a score of 3 or higher will be accepted as equivalent credit for Mathematics 1000.

PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY Students must be eligible to register for Chemistry 1050 and Physics 1050 and 1051 in Engineering One.

  • Students who have completed Chemistry 3202 (or equivalent) in high school, and received at least 75 per cent will be eligible for admission to Chemistry 1050 in their first semester. Math 1000 must be taken concurrently with Physics 1050 and Chemistry 1050

  • It is strongly recommended that students complete Physics 3204 (or equivalent) prior to registering for Physics 1050


Admission to the bachelor of engineering program is competitive for a limited number of placements. Meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee a student’s acceptance into the program. Final admission and readmission decisions rest with the Engineering Admissions Committee.

Students who are not eligible for direct entry into Engineering One may complete Engineering One courses as a bachelor of science student, where space permits. These students can apply for direct acceptance into engineering academic term three.

Students who intend to apply to the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science but are currently not eligible should contact the Student Liaison Officer (see contact below).
