*** 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.
