1 In general, scientific geography courses, statistical courses, and studio/performance courses in fine arts, music, and theatre will not satisfy this requirement. Courses that teach language skills are not acceptable. See Complementary Studies Courses.
2 To be chosen from a list of Electrical Engineering design elective courses from the advising sheet provided by the School of Engineering.
3 To be chosen from a list of technical elective courses provided by the School of Engineering. Up to two third or fourth year courses offered outside the School of Engineering may qualify as technical electives with permission from the Electrical Program Chair.
4 Students with transfer credits from other institutions (e.g. transfer programs, Go Global/CIE, Bridge programs) should consult the Electrical Engineering Advising sheet and check with an Engineering Advisor prior to their 4th year registration date.
Available to Mechanical and Electrical students, the Biomedical Option allows students interested in biomedical Engineering and wearable technology to have courses focused in these areas.
Application to the Biomedical Option is open to students who have completed the first or second year of the Bachelor of Applied Science program and are starting year 2 or higher in the next academic year specializing in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering.
Applications for admission must be submitted to the Engineering Advising Office by May 31st. Enrolment in this option is limited and admission will be competitive based on GPA.
The Biomedical Option under Electrical Engineering requires the following courses:
- Required 4th year courses (as listed above) and:
- ENGR 401 Bioinstrumentation
- ENGR 482 Biomedical Engineering I
- Students must select four of the following elective courses:
- ENGR 402 Biotechnology: Fundamentals and Applications
- ENGR 404 Biomechanics and Rehabilitation Engineering
- ENGR 406 Microelectromechanical Systems
- ENGR 407 Inclusive Design
- ENGR 423 Wearables
- ENGR 450 Clinical Engineering
- ENGR 495 Tissue Engineering
Note that it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the electives chosen meet the program graduation requirements for design and technical electives.
Note that not all technical elective courses will be offered every year.
The option consists of typical years one to three, followed by a set of prescribed fourth year courses with one additional required course (APSC 193) beyond the Bachelor of Applied Science degree.
Students may encounter difficulty fitting these courses into their schedule. Careful planning is essential and completion of the Option may require a summer session or an additional term of study.
Entry into and continuation in the Option require that the student remain in Good Standing. Upon successful completion of the option, the notation “Biomedical Option” will be added to the student’s transcript.
Available to Mechanical and Electrical students, the Mechatronics Option allows students interested in electromechanical systems integrated with embedded electronics, sensors, actuators, and related systems to have a course focus in these areas.
Application to the Mechatronics Option is open to students who have completed the first or second year of the Bachelor of Applied Science program and are starting year 2 or year 3 in the next academic year specializing in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering.
Applications for admission must be made through the Engineering Advising Office by May 31st. Admission will be competitive based on GPA and enrolment in this option is limited.
The Mechatronics Option under Electrical Engineering requires the following courses:
- COSC 121
- COSC 222 OR COSC 2101
- Required 3rd and 4th year courses (as listed above) and Elective requirements:
- 12 credits of Design Electives and 12 credits of Technical Electives from the School of Engineering Mechatronics Option Curriculum Map, including mandatory courses ENGR 480, MANF 386, 486.
Note that it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the electives chosen meet the program requirements for design and technical elective graduation requirements.
Students may encounter difficulty fitting these 2 Computer Science (COSC) courses into their schedule. Careful planning is essential and completion of the Option may require a summer session or additional term of study beyond that required to complete the Bachelor of Applied Sciences degree alone.
Entry into and continuation in the Option requires that the student remains in Good Standing. Upon successful completion of the option, the notation “Mechatronics Option” will be added on the student’s transcript.
1COSC 222 is recommended for students planning to pursue a Minor in Computer Science.
