PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE YEAR

Students registered within this program, and all other undergraduate programs within the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, may elect to enrol and participate in the Professional Experience Year (PEY) program. The PEY program requires that qualified students undertake a paid, full-time 12-16 month continuous work period with a cooperating industry. Details are described in the beginning of this chapter. For more information, consult the Professional Experience Year Office, 222 College Street, Suite 106.

3rd Year Technical Electives

The flexibility for students to choose 1 course in each of the third year terms from the categories: Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS), Complementary Studies (CS) or Technical Electives (TE) offers the opportunity for early streamlining of individual course selections to accommodate students’ preferences for areas of specialization. For example, the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering offers several Minors and Certificate Programs which require third year Technical Electives courses in various programs. Similarly, students who wish to specialize in eligible 4th year subject areas offered by other programs should consult the calendar for third year prerequisite courses.

The MSE Department Technical Electives can be categorized into four theme areas: Biomaterials, Sustainable Materials Processing, Manufacturing with Materials and Design of Materials. The tables below list the third year Technical Electives, organized by theme areas. Students can choose to take courses from different themes. A total of 5 Technical Electives are required for graduation and can be taken between Years 3 and 4. Other courses can also be considered and students should consult with the Associate Chair, Undergraduate Studies for approval. Students who do not select HSS/CS courses in third year must take these in fourth year to meet the minimum number of HSS/CS weight units required by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB).

CS/HSS Requirement - In order to fulfill degree and Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) requirements, each student must take a total of 4 half year (or 2 full year) Complementary Studies (CS) Electives.  Two of those CS electives must be Humanities/Social Sciences (HSS) courses.  In MSE, these courses are taken in 2nd and 3rd years.  (Note: Students may choose to take technical electives in 3rd year instead; and, then take their CS/HSS courses in 4th year.)  Since students are responsible for ensuring that each CS/HSS elective taken is an approved course, be sure to consult the electives list on the Faculty of Engineering's Registrar’s Office website.

Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) Requirements

In order to complete the MSE Program of Study, students are responsible for ensuring that they have taken all the required core courses, the correct number of Technical Electives, HSS/CS electives (total 1.0 credit of each) and a Free Elective. 

To satisfy the CEAB requirements, students must accumulate, during their studies, a minimum total number of "accreditation units" (AUs) as well as a minimum number of AUs in six specific categories: complementary studies, mathematics, natural science, engineering science, engineering design, and combined engineering science & design.
