Program Help

Substitute Courses

If you are entering the first year (Qualifying) program in the Faculty of Engineering but have post-secondary transfer credit for any first year courses you need to carefully plan your schedule. All first year engineering students are required to carry a full course load over or be subject to a light load adjustment and possibly be deemed ineligible for entry into second year programs.

Table III provides a list of courses that you can use to boost your course load to the required level if you are entering the first year with transfer credit.

Before selecting any courses from Table III please check the Calendar carefully for program requirements, prerequisites and corequisites. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the courses they select transfer into the program(s) they are hoping to enter.
