Rolling Cap Increases for ENGG Courses

Space in certain ENGG courses will be increased daily during the initial course selection period.  This allows for fair, distributed access to sections as each window opens.  All efforts are being made to increase space as quickly as possible after the window opens.

Please refer to the University’s Course Selection Windows webpage for important dates and process information.

ENGG Course Restriction Removal

Courses that are restricted to certain BENG majors will remain restricted until August 4, 2020.  WebAdvisor will be closed for the morning of August 4th while restrictions are being removed and then reopened at 12:00 noon for resumed registration. 

Please refer to the University’s Course Selection Windows webpage for important dates and process information.

Fall 2020 Course Selection Restrictions for Returning BENG Students

Course registration restrictions have been placed on some ENGG courses to manage priority access for specific BENG majors, and to manage SOE resources.  Restrictions will be removed after the initial course selection period is over.  Date of restriction removal still to be announced in most cases.

ENGG*3150*0101

Engineering Biomechanics: the 0101 section is initially restricted to BME only to manage BME access to other courses.  This section restriction will be removed when the majority of BME students in Semester 5 have selected required courses.  An announcement will be made to the ENGGUNGRAD listserv one or two days in advance of the restriction removal.

ENGG*3260 0101-0106 

Thermodynamics:  Sections 0101-0106 are restricted to BME, ESC, MECH programs.  The 01 Lecture is “flavoured” for these majors (pilot offering)

ENGG*3260 0207-0209

Thermodynamics:  Sections 0207-0209 are restricted to BIOE, ENVE, WRE programs.  The 02 Lecture is “flavoured” for these majors (pilot offering)

ENGG*4460

Robotics: Registration by waiver form only – this restriction will not be removed for Fall 2020.  Approvals will be granted by the Engineering Program Counselling office.  Please do not ask the instructor for an approval signature.  Completed waiver forms should be submitted to engcouns@uoguelph.ca by Monday, July 20, 2020.  Students who do not receive registration approval will be notified.  Due to the nature of the course, which includes a significant lab component, and the restrictions on physical distancing due to COVID-19 pandemic, the course enrollment has been significantly reduced. As such, priority is given to students who might not have another opportunity to register in this course, and who can attend the labs in person. We also note that this course will not be offered in Winter 2021. The conditions listed below, will be considered for priority registration.  Students are encouraged to include in an email reasons for wanting to register in this elective course this Fall 2020.

  • Must be able to attend labs in person.  Face-to-face labs are mandatory.
  • Registration in one of: ENGG*4000 or ENGG*41X
