Then in the sidebar, click on "Faculty of Engineering", then "Bachelor of Applied Science and Bachelor of Software Engineering specific degree requirements", and then "Management Engineering".
Beginning in 3A, students begin to add electives. By graduation, each student is required to have successfully completed six technical electives, one CSE List A impact elective, and two “free” electives.
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.
Management Sciences Option
The MSCI option consists simply of six courses: three (3) required and three (3) elective courses. Many of these courses have equivalents from other programs.
- At least three of the six courses must be MSCI courses from the Department of Management Sciences.
- A maximum of one course not from the approved list may be counted toward the option, with written approval from the MSCI option coordinator and the associate chair of undergraduate studies in the student's home department. You must complete a course substitution request form (PDF) for a substitution to be considered.
- You may take both MSCI 211 and MSCI 311, in which case one will count toward the required courses and the other toward the elective courses.
- For the designation "Option in Management Sciences" to be included on your transcript, you must achieve a minimum overall cumulative average of 60% in the six courses.
Check the University's official schedule of classes for confirmation of actual course offerings each term.
Accelerated Master's Program
Students accepted to the Accelerated BASc-MASc program can take, during their 4A or 4B terms or during their undergraduate work term, as extra to degree, up to two approved Management Sciences graduate courses which could count toward their MASc degree. These courses will not count toward their BASc degree requirements and can only be taken with written approval of the graduate course instructor, their supervisor, the Management Sciences associate chair for undergraduate studies, and the Management Sciences associate chair for graduate studies.
With approval of the supervisor and Management Sciences associate chair for graduate studies, work done by students during their fourth-year work term(s) under the direction of the supervisor can be included in their MASc thesis provided this work was not used for a Management Sciences 499 project. Note: If the work is done in industry, permission from the company for the work to be published will be necessary
