Am I Ready to Graduate?
I need to register for ENGG*4000.
Engineering students must successfully complete the capstone design project course (41X) associated with their engineering program in their final academic semester. As a prerequisite to 41X, all students must successfully complete ENGG*4000 (Proposal for Engineering Design IV). In this course, students select their group, their topic and their advisor. Students must apply to the Engineering Counselling Office to register for ENGG*4000.
When is the Iron Ring Ceremony?
All engineering graduates in Canada can receive an Iron Ring at a ceremony called the Ritual of the Calling of the Engineer. The ring is worn on the little finger of the engineer’s working hand. The ring symbolizes the pride which engineers have in their profession while reminding them of their duty of responsibility to the public. The ring serves as a reminder to the engineer and others of the engineer's obligation to live by a high standard of professional conduct. Students receive their iron ring just prior to graduation.
When do I apply to graduate and attend convocation?
An email is sent to each student registered at the university in their final academic semester, inviting the student to apply for the upcoming convocation via WebAdvisor. Students who wish to apply for graduation but are not eligible to do so via WebAdvisor can download a hard copy application or email the Undergraduate Graduation and Convocation Coordinator to request one.
