CIV201 - INTRODUCTION TO CIVIL ENGINEERING

CIV201 is a three-day field-based course. The course will be held on the Tuesday, immediately after Labour Day. Students are required to bring and wear their Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The results of this course are used in computing the student's Second Year Fall Session average. An extra fee is charged to cover a transportation and accommodation.

CS/HSS REQUIREMENT

Students are required to complete 4 half-courses of CS/HSS, at least two of which must be HSS, before graduation. The second year core course APS301H1 - Technology in Society and the Biosphere I, counts as one half-course (0.50) towards an HSS requirement. Note that valid HSS courses are more restrictive in scope than are CS courses. A list of pre-approved CS and HSS courses can be found on the Faculty of Engineering's Registrar's Office website.

PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENT

Students are required to have completed a total of 600 hours of acceptable practical experience before graduation (normally during their summer vacation periods). Satisfactory completion of CME358H1 - Survey Camp (Civil and Mineral Practicals), will contribute 100 hours towards this requirement. Satisfactory completion of the Professional Experience Year (PEY) will also completely fulfill the Practical Experience Requirement.

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 company. Details are described in the beginning of this chapter. For more information, consult the Professional Experience Year Office, 222 College Street, Suite 106 early in session 2F or 3F.

JEFFREY SKOLL BASC/MBA PROGRAM

The Jeffrey Skoll Combined BASc/MBA Program allows qualified and selected students in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering to complete both a BASc and an MBA in a reduced time.  Students will be admitted to the program prior to entering their fourth year of studies in the BASc program.  Interested students should contact the Rotman School of Management.

MINORS AND CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS

Several Engineering Minors and Certificate Programs are available and generally require the student to successfully complete a carefully selected slate of electives in their Fourth Year.  Late in the Third Year Winter Session, students use an online pre-registration tool to indicate their preferred fourth-year electives.  Students should review the various minor and certificate program requirements and attend the department's information sessions in Third Year to ensure that the appropriate electives are taken in Fourth Year.  Students should note that they can also complete the requirements of a minor or certificate program even after they have graduated, as long as the additional requirements are met within nine years of their initial registration in the BASc program.  If completed after graduation, additional fees will be assessed. A transcript will be issued with the amended courses and indication of completed minor or certificate program requirements.

OTHER ELECTIVE COURSES

Elective courses in addition to those listed above may be considered based on the following general guidelines. Students wishing to take elective courses from other departments need to ensure that they have the appropriate background and prerequisites. Students with an overall average of 75% or greater in their third year may take up to two graduate level (1000-series) courses, depending upon availability. In all cases the interested student should consult with the Civil Engineering Office of Student Services (GB116) to obtain further information and the appropriate permission.
