In addition to the University Regulations in §5.12, the following Faculty regulations apply to all students registered in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. See §5.9.3 for descriptions of the different kinds of GPA referred to in this section.
In order to be eligible for inclusion on the Dean's Honour List, Engineering students must obtain a TGPA of 85.00% on at least 12 credit hours of numerically graded courses.
University regulations governing academic performance apply to Engineering students (see §5.12).
The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science evaluates academic performance each semester.
Starting from the completion of first full-time semester (with at least nine credit hours), students are expected to maintain a PGPA of at least 60.00%. Those whose PGPA falls below 60.00% will be placed on faculty probation (faculty probation does not appear on official transcripts). Their next academic semester will be considered to be a probationary semester, during which they may take any courses for which they have the prerequisites, and must achieve a TGPA of at least 60.00%. Students who do not achieve the 60% TGPA and who still have a PGPA of less than 60.00% are required to discontinue (Faculty RTD) for at least 2 semesters from the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science.
Students on faculty probation who achieve the 60.00% TGPA but who still have a PGPA of less than 60.00% will remain on faculty probation. Students will be reviewed at the end of their next academic semester subject to the faculty probation conditions outlined above. Students will be permitted two continuations of their probationary semesters to increase their PGPA to the required minimum of 60.00% Failure to achieve this minimum in three probationary semesters will result in a required to discontinue for at least two semesters from the Faculty.
Students may also be required to discontinue from the Faculty at any time for unacceptable professional conduct. Refer also to §5.12, Discipline.
Notification of a requirement to discontinue will be issued no later than one week after the start of lectures and students who are required to discontinue studies will have their registration in academic courses cancelled immediately.
Students must repeat all required courses in which they have a grade of less than 50% (failed course).
When calculating a student's average, the Faculty will use the last grade obtained for all repeated courses (see §5.11).
If an IN is not completed by the end of the following semester, an NP will be assigned.
Averages are calculated to 2 decimal points. The calculation is not rounded but is truncated to 2 decimal points.
These decisions can be appealed to the Faculty's Student Appeals Committee. Refer to §12.8 for procedures.
Students who have been required to discontinue under the Faculty regulations may petition for re-admission after they have discontinued studies for the required period, or may petition for transfer to another faculty (see §2.7).
Upon completion of all program requirements, students are required to submit an application for graduation to the Engineering General Office. The deadlines for 2012-2013 are as listed:
|Completion of Classes||Deadline for Application||Approval from Executive Council||Convocation Ceremony|
|Spring/Summer session||July 31||September||Fall|
University regulations and deadlines governing graduation and convocation ceremonies apply to Engineering students. See §6, Graduation.
Students must complete the BASc degree within ten years of starting in the Faculty. Students transferring into the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science and who have been given transfer credits may have this time reduced depending on the transfer credits that have been given. Students with exceptional circumstances may request the approval of the Faculty for an extension.
Double majors are permitted if a student meets the course requirements of each program. Students must consult the Associate Dean (Academic) for approval.
A PGPA of 60.00% is required for graduation.
A PGPA of 80.00% is required for graduation with distinction.
A PGPA of 85.00% is required for graduation with great distinction.
Successful completion of four work terms is required for graduation with Co-op designation.
Successful completion of the 12 or 16 month internship is required for graduation with Internship designation
