Management Sciences Option/Accelerated BASc-MASc
Beginning in 3A, students begin to add electives to their curriculum. By graduation each student is required to have successfully completed six technical electives from List I, one CSE List A Impact elective, and two “free” electives.
To help you understand and choose electives, compatible with your program, the department has provided the Management Engineering Electives list.
Capstone Design Project & Symposium
Capstone Design Project: This fourth year project is completed by management engineers in their final year, utilizing their skills and working in teams with a faculty supervisor to solve real world problems.
Co-op and Work Term Reports
Detailed information can be found at the Faculty of Engineering Exchange Office.
In Management Engineering, exchange is only available in 3A and/or 3B and to students who have a minimum overall average of 80% with no failed courses.
Once placed at the host institution, you must prepare a study plan and get it approved as follows:
- For each course in your exchange term (3A or 3B), you must find a match at the other school.
- No courses will be approved over load. 3A and 3B both have a load of 5 courses.
- For electives, you must find an appropriate technical elective (containing a large amount of engineering science and/or design) and match it to a technical elective here. If there is no match and the Associate Chair approves the course as a technical elective, it is possible for the course to be approved as GENE 21U (Topics for Technical Courses Taken on Exchange by Management Engineering Students). Only technical electives will be approved.
- Your proposed study plan for approval consists of the Proposed Study Plan Form (doc) and a course outline or syllabus for each course. A course description is insufficient. You must obtain a course outline. When a complete syllabus cannot be obtained online, please email the host university and ask to be sent a copy.
- Each course syllabus should be a separate PDF file and named with the MSCI course number it is a match for as well as the foreign course name. For example, MSCI-332-FOR42115.pdf. Providing links to websites is unacceptable; each syllabus must be a separate PDF file.
- Send your completed form and syllabi to the Associate Chair Undergraduate Studies (email) for approval. Course approvals can take up to two or three weeks.
Please note that with going on exchange comes the risk of a delayed graduation and/or a missed co-op. We only recommend following through on the exchange only when all required courses are available.
