University of Guelph 2001-2002 Undergraduate Calendar

X--Degree Programs, Bachelor of Science in Engineering [B.Sc.(Eng.)]

Program Information

Objectives of the Program

Students in this program obtain a liberal engineering education, which enables them to undertake the solution of engineering problems of the biological world and the associated environment of soil, water and atmosphere. Core subjects, combined with elective opportunities, gives an understanding of the interactions between the environment and human activity. This understanding of the environment is used to develop capability to design systems, structures and machines to operate within the environment.

Concern over both urban and rural environment provides challenges for engineers to optimize the use made of air, water and land for the community at large.

Career opportunities are open in many segments of the economy. Examples are: consulting services to municipalities, utilities and industry; resource agencies in advisory, regulatory, planning and utilization; service industries of construction, power and water supply and public health; industrial and agricultural production, design of computer and control systems for processing, storage and transportation.

Many engineers assume management responsibilities after gaining experience in design, development and operations. The liberal education in life, computational, earth or biological sciences in addition to the social sciences and arts prepares students for career mobility.

Accreditation

The baccalaureate degree programs in all engineering programs are accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers. Graduates from accredited engineering programs have the educational requirements to apply for membership in the Professional Engineers, Ontario (PEO) and other provinces after a number of years of acceptable engineering experience and successful completion of a PEO examination in engineering law and ethics.

Requirements of the Program

Students combine their required courses in mathematics, physical sciences and engineering with additional credits providing the opportunity for specialization in: one of the programs; complementary studies courses; and elective subjects. A minimum of 23.75 credits must be obtained. At least 3.00 credits must be complementary studies, which consist of courses in the social sciences, arts, management, engineering economics and communication. They complement the technical content of the curriculum.

All credits are selected according to the schedule of studies for the program. Restrictions apply to the number of non-core credits which may be at the 1000 level. Further information on approved courses may be obtained from the B.Sc.(Eng.) Program Guide available from the director or program counsellor of the School of Engineering.

Programs

The choice of program is made at the time of application. Change of program requires the approval of the director.

The available programs are:

The schedule of studies for each program is provided below but guidance in the selection of appropriate courses is available from the program counsellor of the School of Engineering.

Additional Course Requirements

Students lacking OAC courses are advised to consult the Recommendations and Notes in Section IV--Admission Information-B.Sc.(Eng.).

Continuation of Study

Students are advised to consult the regulations for continuation of study within the program which are outlined in detail in Section VIII, Undergraduate Degree Regulation & Procedures. Students will be ineligible to continue in the B.Sc. (Eng.) program and will not be readmitted to the degree program if the same course is failed three times.

Normally, students in the B.Sc. (Eng.) program will be permitted only one supplemental privilege during their studies. It will usually be granted for 3000 or 4000 level courses only.

Conditions for Graduation

To qualify for the degree the student must complete the courses required for a B.Sc. (Eng.) program, obtaining a minimum of 23.50 credits and must meet the appropriate continuation of study requirement.

Co-operative Education

Students studying for the B.SC. (ENG.) degree may participate in a Co-operative Education program following the completion of the first 4 semesters of study. The Co-operative Education program consists of a minimum of 4 semesters of experience in industry with employers who participate in the program. Reports and assignments are graded by a faculty supervisor with assistance from the employer. Evaluations of Co- op semesters are recorded on the student's academic record. The Co-operative Education program provides an excellent opportunity for students to obtain work experience in industry directly related to their field of study. Interested students should consult their program counsellor.

Students wishing to participate in the Co-operative Education program should indicate their intention to do so by applying for admission to the Co-op program on entrance. Following the completion of semester 2, in-course applicants will be considered for admission to the Co-op program.

Successful applicants will:

Specialization Requirements

Biological Engineering Program Regular and Co-op (BIOE/BIOE:C)

School of Engineering, College of Physical and Engineering Science.

Students interested in problems requiring the application of knowledge from both the biological sciences and engineering will find a challenge as a Biological Engineer. This field of engineering relates to the control of technological processes with the aim of enhancing human, animal and plant life. The program encompasses the technologies of biotechnology, waste management, food engineering, and ergonomics. For example, a Biological Engineer concentrating on biotechnology might design and manage bioreactors to improve their productivity. A career in Biomedical Engineering, which requires graduate work beyond the Bachelor's degree, involves designing instruments and diagnostic techniques to be used in the practice of medicine, developing prosthetic devices, and applying engineering techniques to the study of physiological systems.

In the last quarter century, the computer has grown so rapidly in importance that engineering, science, business and industry could not function without it. With this growth, a need has evolved for specialists who can incorporate computers and information into complex industrial processes. The Engineering Systems and Computing program has been conceived to satisfy this need. Graduates from this program will have, in addition to the basic engineering skills, the ability to identify application areas where computer technology represents the optimum solution, specify appropriate software for process control, data reduction and/or expert system implementation and integrate the computer into the overall system application.

Water Resources Engineering Program Regular and

Co-op (WRE/WRE:C)

School of Engineering, College of Physical and Engineering Science.

Water resources engineering focuses on the use and management of land and water resources in rural and urban watersheds. The hydrologic and hydraulic behaviour of watershed flow systems is combined with engineering science and. Water management includes flood prevention, warning and control; drainage; design of natural channels; irrigation; and erosion prevention and control. The supply of water for municipal, industrial and agricultural purposes is considered in the context of resource conservation. Identification of potential point and diffused sources of pollutants is used to develop efficient, environmentally sustainable and economical methods to preserve high-quality water to sustain human life and water-dependent ecosystems.
