The Geological Engineering plan requires that each student take 5 Technical Electives and 3 Complementary Studies Electives (below). The Technical Elective list is at the end of the Geological Engineering plan calendar entry. These courses can be taken at any point during the program to accommodate timetabling, but usually 2 TECHNICAL Electives and 1 COMPLEMENTARY electives are taken in third year, and 3 TECHNICAL and 2 COMPLEMENTARY electives are taken in fourth year. Students should plan to ensure that prerequisite and co-requisite requirements are met. Students should note that a reduction of total course load to less than 80% of the normal load may prevent them from holding Queen’s University scholarships.
Refer to the Complementary Studies section of this calendar for courses that may be taken for all Engineering plans. For the Geological Engineering Plan, the Engineering Economics course is APSC 221, and the Communications course is APSC 293 in addition to first year plan and the three Complementary Studies courses (as above): 2 from List A and 1 from Lists A, B, C, or D.
