Practical Experience Requirement

  • As described in the beginning of this chapter, students are required to have completed a total of 600 hours of acceptable practical experience before graduation (normally during their summer vacation periods).

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE YEAR

Students registered within this program, and all other undergraduate programs within the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, may elect to enroll 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, 45 Willcocks Street 2nd Floor early in session 2F or 3F.

THESIS

The thesis ( CHE499Y1) is a full-year (Fall and Winter Sessions) thesis that requires approval from the department and research project supervisor.

TECHNICAL ELECTIVES

Students may take any of the Technical Elective courses listed in the table below, or from any of the technical Engineering Minors (excluding the Minor in Engineering Business).  Students wishing to pursue an Engineering Minor should take their core courses as technical electives in terms 3F and 3S.  For more information on the various Minors, please see the sections of the Calendar relating to these programs.
