THIRD YEAR
Students must have completed all the 1st year courses and at least ten 10 of their 2nd year courses before being allowed to register into the 3rd year courses courses including all pre-requisite courses required for registration into the 3rd year courses.

*** Students opting for the Integrated BASc/MASc program:
    The Faculty of Engineering offers a Bachelor's/Master's Integrated Engineering Degree program which allows students with outstanding academic ability to achieve both a B.A.Sc. and M.A.Sc. degree in a time period as short as five years. This program treats the educational process through the B.A.Sc. to the M.A.Sc. degree as a single coherent integrated whole, while ensuring that the requirements for both degrees are fully satisfied. This structured program represents a complementary alternative to the existing separate undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

    Application to the Integrated B.A.Sc./M.A.Sc. can be made early in the Winter semester of the student's third year of undergraduate B.A.Sc. study. Normally, only applicants who have a cumulative average of at least 77%, and a semester average of 77% in the Fall semester of their third year of undergraduate B.A.Sc. study may be granted admission to the integrated program which confers conditional admission status to the M.A.Sc. program.

Fall Term
GENG-3130. Engrg. Economics
ELEC-3130. Electromech. Systems I
ELEC-3160. Electronics II
ELEC-3300. Dig. Logic Design II
ELEC-2110. Computer Aided Analysis

Winter Term
Co-op students only
GENG-3980. Work Term II

Summer Term
ELEC-2250. Physical Electronics
ELEC-3240. Control Systems I
ELEC-3270. Microprocessors
ELEC-3290. Analog Comm.
GENG-2500 Engineering and the Environment
One non-technical course from the Faculty of Engineering’s approved list.
