Core courses in the Engineering Physics plan provide the student with fundamental physical principles and theoretical tools for professional practice as well as a firm foundation in modern experimental techniques. To relate these abilities to the attitudes and knowledge of other engineering disciplines, the plan has four sub-plans: electrical, materials, mechanical, and computing. These sub-plans provide a sequence of courses in other engineering departments and thus provide career or graduate studies opportunities in both engineering and applied physics.

NOTE: Students will not be registered in any core second year engineering physics courses until they have passed all the required first year mathematics and physics courses. It is strongly recommended that students have a grade of C- or better in the first year mathematics and physics courses.

Fourth year elective courses must be chosen such that at the end of the academic plan each student meets or exceeds the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) program requirements. A spreadsheet will be provided by the Undergraduate Chair to aid fourth year students with their course selection.

Options available:

  • Electrical Option
  • Materials Option
  • Mechanical Option
  • Computing Option
