Recommendations and Notes:
- All applicants are encouraged to include both OAC Physics and Chemistry in their course credits.
- Applicants are considered on the basis of academic performance and a review of a Student Profile Form submitted to the B.Sc.(Eng.) Admissions Committee. In addition, due to the nature of the program, personal interviews and/or special tests may be used to assist in the selection of candidates. Differential criteria may prevail for admission to the various B.Sc.(Eng.) programs. Students who are admitted but lack required OAC courses must complete replacement courses available at the University which do not count towards the 44 courses required for the B.Sc.(Eng.) program. Students intending to enrol in these courses should consult the timetable and Section XII of the Calendar to determine the semester during which they are offered.
- Applicants who lack a specific OAC subject requirement but who have a high overall academic standing are encouraged to apply for admission. Replacement credits are available at the University of Guelph and 1 may be counted for credit in the degree.
- Students selecting a major in Environmental and Biological Engineering are advised to include Physics, Chemistry and Biology in their program of study. Students intending to major in Water Resources Engineering should include Physics, Chemistry and 1 of Biology or Computer Studies. Engineering Systems and Computing majors should include Physics, Chemistry and Computer Studies.
