Welcome to the Software Engineering program!
We understand that the first year of university can be overwhelming, so we want to help make your transition as easy as possible.
The links and information contained on this page and on your class homepage are intended to get you settled in and to help you find everything you need to succeed in your first year!
If you have any questions that have not been addressed on these pages, then feel free to contact us or drop by the Software Engineering Admiministration Offices (DC 2536, DC 2538, DC 2539).
As a first-year student in the Software Engineering program, you will automatically be enrolled in your first year courses. You will be able to view your schedule and fee statement on Quest, as well as update your personal information. Starting in 2A, you will use Quest to pre-enroll and enroll for your elective courses, so become familiar with Quest.
Computing on campus
The WatCard is your one card to access many facilities and services both on and off campus.
Students elect their class representatives in their concepts course (SE101) during their 1A term. New student representatives are elected each subsequent academic term.
Among other things, class reps act as the main liaison between their classmates, professors, and the SE administration. They also attend 3 meeting throughout the term and bring forward any class concerns.
Communication Skills Requirement
Strong communication skills are essential to academic, professional, and personal success. As such, Software Engineering students must take a course from the Linkage Elective Communication List in the 2A term. This elective list parallels the Math Communication Skills Requirements List 1.
Workplace Hazardous Material Information System (WHMIS)
All students in the Faculty of Engineering must have appropriate instruction on issues of workplace safety: Workplace Hazardous Material Information System (WHMIS) training satisfies this requirement. Software Engineering students will receive the appropriate level of WHMIS training in ECE 140.
