82 General Information
82.1 BSc Engineering
The Faculty of Engineering offers undergraduate programs leading to BSc degrees in Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Materials Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mining Engineering, and Petroleum Engineering.
All engineering students follow a common curriculum in their first year and take courses in Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Computing, Humanities, Engineering Mechanics, and Introduction to the Engineering Profession. In March of the first year, students choose among the various engineering disciplines offered and also between the traditional and cooperative education streams. The disciplines and education streams are described in the following sections.
The second-year program includes courses such as Mathematics and English, common to all departments, as well as courses specific to the chosen discipline. As students progress through the program, courses become more specialized. Also, exposure to basic business concepts is important to an engineering education. Programs for all disciplines include courses in engineering economics, and several engineering management and business electives are available.
Enrolment in all Engineering programs is limited.
82.1.1 Engineering Instruction in French
In conjunction with Faculté Saint-Jean, most of the first-year curriculum can be taken in French on the Faculté Saint-Jean campus (see §180). Academic conditions and content of the courses are equivalent to their English counterparts. Note that only a few second-year and higher level courses for Engineering programs are available in French. See §184.10 for further details.
