Successful completion of an Engineering Certificate is included on transcripts.  Note that no course counted for degree credit, can be counted for more than one minor or certificate.

Since the dawn of the industrial revolution, engineers have been amongst the most successful entrepreneurs, and this is especially true in today’s global economy. The enormous growth of the e-Economy has enabled many young people to be successful even earlier than the previous generation did. Wealth creation is a legitimate aspiration today and many of you will be successful in this endeavor. Furthermore, strategic uses of technology in all sorts of businesses make the difference between success and failure for these firms. The “entrepreneurial” spirit together with drive and persistency are requirements for success. Also, to participate effectively in this global economy, large and medium sized corporations are desperately seeking intrapreneurs, entrepreneurial individuals who prefer to work inside a larger firm rather than to start or run their own business.  Owning a business has many advantages. Entrepreneurs can control their own lives, structure their own progress, be accountable for their own success and can see the fruit of their labours in the wealth they create. After all, engineers are the most capable people to be in the forefront of this drive which will depend on the on-line e-Business environment fostered by the Internet and the Web in the new millennium. The development of these talents is addressed in a set of two courses but be forewarned that these courses require a substantial effort on the part of the student and the instructors. They are unusual in that, to be accepted into them, a student has to possess some of the prerequisite personality traits and some unique abilities required to become a successful entrepreneur.

Prior to being accepted into APS234H1, a short test is offered to those who believe that they have the drive and talents to start their own business. APS234H1 is available in the Fall semester in any but the first year of study. APS432H1 is offered in the Winter and can be taken in the same or a later year. The courses are sequential and the first is the pre-requisite of the second.

Aerospace Science and Engineering

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM IN AEROSPACE SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING

The University of Toronto offers a comprehensive program of study in Aerospace Science and Engineering at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The undergraduate program is offered through the Division of Engineering Science, while the graduate program is offered at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies (UTIAS).  All Engineering Science students follow a common curriculum during the first two years, with emphasis on mathematics, science, and engineering fundamentals. The final two years in the Aerospace Option focus on aeronautics and space engineering, with courses delivered primarily by faculty from UTIAS.
 The undergraduate aerospace curriculum reflects the diverse and dynamic activities associated with the aerospace industry in Canada and abroad. Students are exposed to courses associated with aeronautical and space sciences and engineering, and also gain practical experience in laboratory and design courses. Capstone design courses in fourth year include Space Systems Design, where student teams design hardware associated with a space mission, such as a Hubble telescope repair mission, or a Europa landing probe. Engineers from MDA Space Missions play a major role in the delivery of this course. In the Aircraft Design course, student teams design and build model aircraft with various configurations, which are then flown in a fly-off competition at the end of the term.
 The aerospace field has progressed extensively since the record-setting flights by F.W. Baldwin and J.A.D. McCurdy - both University of Toronto engineering graduates - during the early 1900s. It has evolved into a multi-disciplinary activity that finds itself at the cutting edge of high technology research and development. Consequently, the field is rich with technological and engineering challenges in diverse areas such as hypersonic aerodynamics, multi-disciplinary optimization, and space exploration. Students at the fourth year level will have opportunities to select courses and work on thesis projects related to the many specialized areas of active research at UTIAS.
 While the undergraduate program prepares students for immediate entry into a professional engineering career, many students continue to the graduate level in order to enhance their qualifications and employment opportunities.

Biomedical engineering is an interdisciplinary field that integrates the principles of biology with those of engineering, the physical sciences, and mathematics to create solutions to problems in the medical/life sciences. Through its faculty (90+), staff, and students, and through close collaboration with the faculty of related departments, hospitals and other institutions, the Institute serves as the centre for both Direct Entry and Collaborative Graduate Programs in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto. An undergraduate degree in engineering is not a prerequisite for admission into the MASc/PhD graduate program.

 

At the undergraduate level, the Institute educates students in the biomedical systems engineering major in engineering science, and bioengineering and biomedical engineering minor programs. An active undergraduate summer student program offers both employment and a structured educational experience within the Institute’s research laboratories. IBBME houses a unique and innovative Teaching Laboratory for training undergraduate students in the use of state-of-the-art bioanalytical, imaging, and biomedical engineering tools, techniques, and platforms. A sophisticated Design Studio fully equipped with rapid prototyping tools, and electronic test and measurement platforms is available in support of the biomedical engineering undergraduate design and capstone courses.

 

Graduate students registered directly into the Institute, or in collaborating graduate departments, proceed towards MASc, MHSc, MEng (Biomedical Engineering), MSc or PhD degrees in engineering, dentistry, medicine, or the physical or life sciences, enabling careers in industry, government, and academia. The Institute has a Clinical Engineering concentration within its PhD program, which complements its two-year MHSc professional degree program in Clinical Engineering. Graduates from the Clinical Engineering specialization programs normally find employment in health-care institutions or in the medical devices industry both in Canada and internationally.

 

The Institute’s core laboratories are principally located in the Rosebrugh Building, the Lassonde Mining Building, and the Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research on the St. George Campus, with a unique satellite facility housing the Translational Biology and Engineering Program of the Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research in the MaRS2 Discovery Tower. Approximately 50 per cent of our core faculty have laboratories located in other university departments and hospitals. These laboratories serve as centres for development of experimental and clinical techniques, tools and instrumentation; real-time and interactive computer applications; innovative biomaterials; functional replacements for biological tissues and simulations for electrochemical and physiological models. Many IBBME faculty are appointed in departments in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, Medicine, as well as hospital research institutes.

Chemical Engineering is that primary engineering discipline based on the fundamental sciences of chemistry, physics, biochemistry and mathematics, in which processes are conceived, designed and operated to effect compositional changes in materials of all kinds.  Chemical engineers play an important role in the development of a healthier environment and safer and healthier industrial workplaces. They develop new industrial processes that are more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly and create products that improve the quality of life. They are responsible for improvements in technologies and in evaluating and controlling hazards.  In addition to the basic sciences, chemical engineers use a well-defined body of knowledge in the application of the conservation laws which determine mass flow and energy relations; thermodynamics and kinetics which determine whether reactions are feasible and the rate at which they occur; and the chemical engineering rate laws which determine limits to the transfer of heat, mass and momentum. Graduating chemical engineers are skilled problem solvers.  A strong background in applied chemistry furnishes the chemical engineer with the knowledge to participate in the broadest range of engineering activities, and indeed to pursue other professional careers in management, medicine, law, teaching and government. Instruction in important aspects of economic analysis is also included.  In the Fall Session of Fourth Year, students participate in small teams in the design of a chemical plant. 4th year students may undertake an individual full year research project. This project, the culmination of which is a thesis, serves in many cases as an introduction to research, and provides an opportunity to apply the principles developed during the first three years of the program to problems of engineering interest. A thesis project may, for example, concern an experimental laboratory investigation, the design of a process, or a computer study of a complex chemical system.

The Technical Elective subjects available in the Third and Fourth Years cover a wide range of fundamental and application areas of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry. By choosing electives from a restricted list, it is possible for students to complete the requirements for an Engineering Minor. A minor signifies that a student has gained an enhanced understanding of a specific field of study. For more information on the various Minors, please see the sections of the Calendar relating to these programs

Civil Engineering exists at the intersection of the human, built, and natural environments. Civil Engineers have historically been the professionals leading the design, construction, maintenance and eventual decommissioning of society's physical infrastructure, including: transportation networks, water supply and wastewater treatment systems, the structures for energy generation and distribution systems, buildings and other works, land and water remediation, and more.

Although civil engineering is a highly technical profession, responsible engineering today also requires that engineers understand the impact of their decisions and their constructed works on society at large, including issues of environmental stewardship and life-cycle economic responsibility. For example, significant proportions of the world's energy and raw materials production goes into the construction and operations of our buildings and transportation systems. Civil Engineers have a significant role to play in making these systems more sustainable for future generations. The undergraduate program is therefore designed to complement technical training with learning opportunities that address these challenges.

added text 

Students enhance their undergraduate experience through a number of enriched programs. The undergraduate courses have been deliberately sequenced so that students can take advantage of the Minors in Bioengineering, Environmental Engineering or Sustainable Energy; the Certificate Programs in Preventative Engineering and Social Development or in Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Small Business; co-op work opportunities through the Professional Experience Year Internship Program; and post-graduate academic opportunities through the Jeffrey Skoll BASc/MBA Program or through fast-tracked Master's degree programs.

The computer engineering undergraduate program is distinctive as it is based on the broad areas of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.  These foundations are used in the design and organization of computer systems, the design of programs that turn these systems into useful applications, and the use of computers in communication and control systems.  The design includes hardware, as well as, operating systems and software.  Computer engineering students will learn how computer systems work and how they can be integrated into larger systems that serve a wide range of users and businesses.  As a result, the program also ensures that our students will gain experience in communication, problem-solving and team management skills.

A computer engineer may be involved in the design of computers and computer systems.  They may also be engaged in the design of computer-based communications and control systems or in the design of microelectronic circuits, including computer-aided design and manufacturing.  Computer system analysis and the design of both hardware and software for applications, such as artificial intelligence and expert systems, database systems, wireless networks, computer security and robotics, are included in the scope of the computer engineer’s work.

The first two years of study provide the essential background in basic science and mathematics, and also introduces the student to the important concepts in Electrical and Computer Engineering such as circuits, digital systems, electronics, and communication systems. These two years of study are identical to Electrical Engineering.

In third and fourth year, the curriculum allows flexibility in a student’s course selection, subject to program and accreditation requirements described below.  A student has greater choice from a broad array of courses in six areas of study that would appeal to their individual strengths and interests. An on-line program called Magellan is available to facilitate the course selection process. All second year students will have access to Magellan by the end of their fall term .  If at any time a student has questions about their curriculum decisions, contact information can be found at: https://magellan.ece.toronto.edu

Graduates of the program may decide to go directly into careers in a wide range of fields, and continue to learn by direct experience and through the opportunities of company-sponsored education.  Students may also decide to pursue studies at the graduate level with studies in most areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering, or Computer Science.  More detailed information can be found at:  http://www.ece.utoronto.ca/graduates-home/

ECE Program Requirements

There are nine requirements:

1.  BREADTH REQUIREMENT:  A minimum of four kernel courses, each in a different area, must be chosen.

2.  DEPTH REQUIREMENT:  Select at least two areas from which one kernel course has been chosen.  In each of these two areas, two additional technical courses must be chosen.  Kernel courses may also be chosen to meet this requirement.

3.  ENGINEERING ECONOMICS REQUIREMENTSECE472H1 must be chosen.  Course can be taken in either third or fourth year.

4.  CAPSTONE REQUIREMENT:  The Design Project, ECE496Y1, must be taken in fourth year.  To be eligible to register for the capstone course, you must have at least 7 technical electives or 6 technical electives plus ECE472H1.

5.  MATH/SCIENCE REQUIREMENT:  At least one course from the Math/Science area must be chosen.

6.  TECHNICAL ELECTIVE REQUIREMENT:  A minimum of three additional ECE technical courses must be chosen from any of the six areas of study.  With approval from ECE, one of the technical electives can be taken from another department. Only 300, 400 and 500 level courses can be used as a technical elective.

7.  FREE ELECTIVE REQUIREMENT:  One is required, and may be a technical or a non-technical course.

8.  COMPLEMENTARY STUDIES REQUIREMENT:  In each of terms 3F, 3S, 4F, and 4S, a complementary studies course must be taken.  Of the four complementary studies courses, a minimum of two must be humanities and social science (HSS) courses chosen from an approved list on the Registrar's website: http://www.undergrad.engineering.utoronto.ca/Office_of_the_Registrar/Electives.htm

9. PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENT:  Students are required to have completed a total of 600 hours of acceptable practical experience before graduation (normally during their summer vacation periods).  Students registered within this program, may elect to enrol and participate in the Professional Experience Year (PEY) program.  The PEY program requires that qualified students undertake a paid, full-time 12-16 month continuous work period with a participating company.  Details are described at the beginning of this chapter.  For more information, consult the PEY Office early in session 2F or 3F.

A sample course selection arrangement for third and fourth year is shown in the table below.

3F Technical Elective Other Science/Math Area Kernel Area Kernel Complementary Studies
3S Engineering Economics Depth Area Kernel Area Kernel Complementary Studies
4F Technical Elective Depth Depth 4th Year Design Project Humanities & Social Science
4S Free Elective Technical Elective Depth 4th Year Design Project Humanities & Social Science
Degree Designation

If, among the eight courses required to satisfy the Breadth requirement (1) and the Depth requirement (2), at least four are selected from Areas 5 and 6, then the student is eligible for the B.A.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering.  If, among these eight courses, at least five are selected from Areas 1 to 4, then the student is eligible for the B.A.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering.  By appropriate choice of kernel courses as technical or free electives, it may be possible to satisfy these requirements simultaneously; in this case, the student must choose one of the two designations.

In addition to the above program requirements, all CEAB requirements, including the minimum number of accreditation units (AU's) in the various CEAB categories, must be met in order to graduate.

CEAB Requirements

To satisfy CEAB requirements, students must accumulate, during four years of study, a minimum number of academic units in six categories:  complementary studies, mathematics, basic science, engineering science, engineering design, combined engineering science and design.  For details on how to verify satisfaction of CEAB requirements, students are referred to the ECE Undergraduate website:
https://magellan.ece.toronto.edu.

It is recognized that the course selection process can be complex in the flexible curriculum for third and fourth year.  Students are advised to consult the ECE Undergraduate Office on questions related to course selection.  In addition, tools will be provided to assist students to ensure satisfaction of all requirements in their course selection.  For complete details, students are referred to the ECE Department Undergraduate Studies office at askece@ecf.utoronto.ca.

A student who selects a course of study that does not meet ECE and CEAB requirements will not be eligible to graduate.

Graduate Programs in Computer Engineering

Graduate study and research in Computer Engineering may be pursued in either the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering or the Department of Computer Science.  Both theoretical and applied topics are encouraged.  Programs lead to the M.Eng. or M.A.Sc. degree in Engineering or the M.Sc. in Computer Science, and to the Ph.D. in either Department.  Prospective graduate studies should consult the Departments early to determine the most appropriate Department in which to register.

Electrical engineering is an exciting and extensive field that applies the principles of science and mathematics with engineering fundamentals which are then used to develop a student’s skills needed to analyze, design and build electrical, electronic and photonics systems.  The program includes diverse areas of study such as microelectronics, digital communications, wireless systems, photonics systems, signal processing, control, microprocessors, computer technology, energy systems and electronic device fabrication.  This breadth is unique to Electrical Engineering and opens a wide range of career possibilities.  As a result, the program also ensures that through their course work, a student gains experience in communication, problem-solving and team management skills.

An electrical engineer may be involved in the design, development and testing of electrical and electronic equipment such as telecommunication systems, industrial process controls, signal processing, navigation systems, power generation, transmission systems, wireless and optical communications and integrated circuit engineering.

The first two years of study provide the essential background in basic science and mathematics and also introduces the student to the important concepts in Electrical and Computer Engineering such as circuits, digital systems, electronics, and communication systems. These two years of study are identical to Computer Engineering.

In third and fourth year, the curriculum allows flexibility in a student’s course selection, subject to program and accreditation requirements described below.  A student has greater choice from a broad array of courses in six areas of study that would appeal to their individual strengths and interests.  An on-line program called Magellan is available to facilitate the course selection process. All second year students will have access to Magellan by the end of their fall term.  If at any time a student has questions about their curriculum decisions, contact information can be found at: https://magellan.ece.toronto.edu.


Graduates of the program may decide to go directly into careers in a wide range of fields and continue to learn by direct experience and through the opportunities of company-sponsored education.  Students may also decide to pursue studies at the graduate level and can find more detailed information at: http://www.ece.utoronto.ca/graduates-home/

PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENT:  Students are required to have completed a total of 600 hours of acceptable practical experience before graduation (normally during their summer vacation periods).  Students registered within this program, may elect to enrol and participate in the Professional Experience Year (PEY) program.  The PEY program requires that qualified students undertake a paid, full-time 12-16 month continuous work period with a participating company.  Details are described at the beginning of this chapter.  For more information, consult the PEY Office early in session 2F or 3F.

A sample course selection arrangement for third and fourth year is shown in the table below.

3F Technical Elective Other Science/Math Area Kernel Area Kernel Complementary Studies
3S Engineering Economics Depth Area Kernel Area Kernel Complementary Studies
4F Technical Elective Depth Depth 4th Year Design Project Humanities & Social Science
4S Free Elective Technical Elective Depth 4th Year Design Project Humanities & Social Science
Degree Designation

If, among the eight courses required to satisfy the Breadth requirement (1) and the Depth requirement (2), at least four are selected from Areas 5 and 6, then the student is eligible for the B.A.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering.  If, among these eight courses, at least five are selected from Areas 1 to 4, then the student is eligible for the B.A.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering.  By appropriate choice of kernel courses as technical or free electives, it may be possible to satisfy these requirements simultaneously; in this case, the student must choose one of the two designations.

CEAB Requirements

  To satisfy CEAB requirements, students must accumulate, during four years of study, a minimum number of academic units in six categories:  complementary studies, mathematics, basic science, engineering science, engineering design, combined engineering science and design.  For details on how to verify satisfaction of CEAB requirements, students are referred to the ECE Undergraduate website:
https://magellan.ece.toronto.edu.

  It is recognized that the course selection process can be complex in the flexible curriculum for third and fourth year.  Students are advised to consult the ECE Undergraduate Office on questions related to course selection.  In addition, tools will be provided to assist students to ensure satisfaction of all requirements in their course selection.  For complete details, students are referred to the ECE Department Undergraduate Studies office at askece@ecf.utoronto.ca.
  A student who selects a course of study that does not meet ECE and CEAB requirements will not be eligible to graduate.

Graduate Programs in Electrical Engineering

Graduate study and research in Electrical Engineering may be pursued in either the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering or the Department of Computer Science.  Both theoretical and applied topics are encouraged.  Programs lead to the M.Eng. or M.A.Sc. degree in Engineering or the M.Sc. in Computer Science, and to the Ph.D. in either Department.  Prospective graduate studies should consult the Departments early to determine the most appropriate Department in which to register.

Engineering Science is an enriched program that provides excellent preparation for postgraduate studies in engineering and science as well as for other professional degree programs such as business, law and medicine. Graduates of the program are also well qualified to immediately embark on professional engineering-related careers.


The Engineering Science program shares elements of the Faculty’s Engineering programs, but is distinct in many respects, with the key differences being:

Engineering Science students in years 1, 2 and 3 are required to maintain a full course load, unless they gain permission from their academic counsellor in the Division of Engineering Science to pursue part time studies or less than a normal/full course load due to medical or personal reasons. Students entering year 4 are expected to maintain a full course load, but students with medical or personal reasons or who have completed program requirements prior to Year 4 may go part time or less than a full course load in 4F and/or 4W. This is subject to the approval of their academic counsellor. Please note that a reduced course load in 4F or 4W may impact award assessments. Please refer to the academic calendar under "Academic Regulations VII: Academic Standing" for Honours Standing criteria related to course load, and consult with your academic counsellor for more information.

Transfers in Year 1 from Engineering Science to one of the Faculty’s Engineering programs are permitted early in the Fall Session (typically in the first two weeks of the Fall session), at the end of the Fall Session, and at the end of the Winter Session.  Continuation into the Winter Session of Year 1 requires a minimum average of 55% in the Fall Session; continuation into Year 2 requires a minimum average of 65% in the Winter Session of Year 1.  Students who do not meet these requirements are required to transfer into one of the Faculty’s Engineering programs, subject to the requirements and provisions outlined in the section on Academic Regulations in this Calendar.  

THE ENGINEERING SCIENCE CURRICULUM
The first two years of the curriculum focus on the foundations of both engineering and science.  The courses in the first two years of the program are common for all students and are only offered to students in the program.  At the end of Second Year, each student selects one of the following Majors to pursue in their final two years. This represents their major field of specialization:


The curriculum for the first two years and the curricula for the eight Majors are presented on the pages that follow.

Degree Designation
Engineering Science students graduate with the degree “Bachelor of Applied Science in Engineering Science”.  On their official transcript, their chosen Option is indicated as their Major, e.g. Major in Aerospace Engineering.

Degree Requirements
In order to graduate, students must meet all of the degree requirements outlined in the section on Academic Regulations in this Calendar.  In addition to these requirements, students must also successfully complete their chosen Program of Study in Engineering Science as described on the following pages of this Calendar, as well as the curriculum requirements of the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB). 

To complete their chosen Program of Study, students are responsible for ensuring that they have taken all of the required courses and the correct number of technical electives for their Major.  Students may request elective course substitutions, but any such substitutions must be approved in advance by the Division of Engineering Science through the student's counsellor. This also applies to any course listed as ‘Other Technical Elective’. Students must also meet the Complementary Studies (CS) requirements of the program. This includes 2.0 credits, of which 1.0 credit must be in Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS). More information on CS and HSS electives may be found in the Curriculum & Programs section of this Calendar. Students may change the term in which they take Technical and CS/HSS Electives (for example, switch a CS/HSS elective in Year 3 Fall with a Technical Elective in Year 4 Fall), as long as they meet the elective requirements for their Major.

To satisfy the CEAB requirements, students must accumulate during their program of study a minimum total number of accreditation units (AU) as well as a minimum number of AU in six categories: complementary studies, mathematics, natural science, engineering science, engineering design, and combined engineering science and design.  The Division of Engineering Science provides students with a planning tool called the AU Tracker to help students ensure that they satisfy these requirements. The AU Tracker, which lists all successfully completed courses as well as all of the courses they are enrolled in for the current academic year, confirms whether students are on track to meet or exceed the CEAB requirements.

If a student is deficient in terms of the Program of Study or falls short in any of the CEAB categories, the student must adjust their course selection accordingly in order to graduate.

Practical Experience Requirement
Students are required to have completed a total of 600 hours of acceptable practical experience before graduation (normally during their summer vacation periods).  Satisfactory completion of the Professional Experience Year (PEY) will also completely fulfill the Practical Experience Requirement.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM IN MATERIALS ENGINEERING (AEMMSBASC)

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT COUNSELLOR:
Ms Sabrin Mohamed
Room 140, Wallberg Building 416-978-7308
Email: sabrin.mohamed@utoronto.ca

The goal of the materials engineering undergraduate curriculum is to provide an understanding of the underlying principles of synthesis, characterization and processing of materials and of the interrelationships among structure, properties, and processing.   The program prepares students for professional careers in a wide variety of industries, as well as for advanced study in this field. It also provides students with the opportunity to broaden their education in engineering and science or to expand their knowledge in a particular technical area by offering course foundations in four core areas: biomaterials, manufacturing with materials, sustainable materials processing, and design of materials (including nanomaterials).

The first year of the program establishes basic fundamentals in math, chemistry, and physics with an introduction to design, communications, and societal issues in Engineering.  In the second year, the students are introduced to the structural and analytical characterization of materials, mechanics of solids, thermodynamics, diffusion and kinetics, fundamentals and processing of organic materials, and engineering statistics. The third year is devoted to core courses in electrical and quantum mechanical properties of matter, thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer, phase transformations, process design, mechanical behaviour along with a full year materials manufacturing and design laboratory. The fourth year has core courses in environmental degradation of materials and materials selection in design plus technical electives in the four core areas (for technical electives outside the calendar list provided please consult with the Associate Chair, Undergraduate).  The fourth year also culminates in a senior design course in which the students integrate the knowledge obtained during their prior studies.  The technical aspects of the curriculum are complemented by communication, humanities and social sciences courses and by material on leadership, ethics, team building and environmental responsibility that are distributed throughout the curriculum.

For those students interested in pursuing an Engineering Minor, please read the detailed information provided at the beginning of this chapter.  By selecting courses which meet both MSE requirements and the requirements of the respective Minor, it is possible for a student to complete a Minor during the normal course of study.

For those students interested in pursuing the Jeffrey Skoll BASc/MBA (SKOLL) Program, please read the detailed information provided at the beginning of this chapter.

ENGINEERING SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM (eSIP) PROGRAM

The Engineering Summer Internship Program (eSIP) is a paid summer co-op program offered through the Engineering Career Centre.  It is available to eligible engineering students in year 2 or 3 of study, including engineering international students. eSIP is more akin to a traditional co-op placement, where students work for four months and thus serves as an introductory career development program for participants. Through formalized and interactive workshops and individual counseling appointments, students are introduced to concepts and tools to prepare them for the workplace.  The majority of applicants are in their year 2 of study, for which eSIP holds particular value in preparing students to be competitive for future opportunities, such as the intensive model of the PEY internship.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE YEAR

Students registered within this program, and all other undergraduate programs within the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, may elect to enrol and participate in the Professional Experience Year (PEY) program. The PEY program requires that qualified students undertake a paid, full-time 12-16 month continuous work period with a cooperating industry. Details are described in the beginning of this chapter. For more information, consult the Professional Experience Year Office, 222 College Street, Suite 106.

3rd Year Technical Electives

The flexibility for students to choose 1 course in each of the third year terms from the categories: Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS), Complementary Studies (CS) or Technical Electives (TE) offers the opportunity for early streamlining of individual course selections to accommodate students’ preferences for areas of specialization. For example, the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering offers several Minors and Certificate Programs which require third year Technical Electives courses in various programs. Similarly, students who wish to specialize in eligible 4th year subject areas offered by other programs should consult the calendar for third year prerequisite courses.

The Materials Department offers specialization in four Theme Areas: Biomaterials, Sustainable Materials Processing, Manufacturing with Materials and Design of Materials. In the table below several suggested third year Technical Electives are listed for each of the four Theme Areas. Other courses can also be considered and students should consult with the Associate Chair, Undergraduate Studies for approval. Students who do not select HSS/CS courses in third year must take these in fourth year to meet the minimum number of HSS/CS weight units required by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB).

HSS/CS Requirement - In order to fulfill degree and Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) requirements, each student must take a total of 4 half year (or 2 full year) Complementary Studies (CS) Electives.  Two of those CS electives must be Humanities/Social Sciences (HSS) courses.  In MSE, these courses are taken in 2nd and 3rd years.  (Note: Students may choose to take technical electives in 3rd year instead; and, then take their HSS/CS courses in 4th year.)  Since students are responsible for ensuring that each HSS/CS elective taken is an approved course, be sure to consult the electives list on the APSC Registrar’s website.

Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) Requirements

In order to complete the MSE Program of Study, students are responsible for ensuring that they have taken all the required core courses, the correct number of Technical Electives (in accordance with Theme requirements), HSS/CS electives (total 1.0 credit of each) and a Free Elective. 

To satisfy the CEAB requirements, students must accumulate, during their studies, a minimum total number of "accreditation units" (AUs) as well as a minimum number of AUs in six specific categories: complementary studies, mathematics, natural science, engineering science, engineering design, and combined engineering science & design.  MSE now provides students with a planning tool, the "AU Tracker", to help students  to ensure that all requirements are met. Using the AU Tracker, a student can list all successfully completed courses, as well as all the courses enrolled in for the current academic year.  The Tracker confirms whether or not students are on track to meet or exceed the CEAB requirements.

Industrial Engineering (IE) is a discipline that applies engineering principles to the design and operation of organizations. Industrial Engineering students learn to analyze, design, implement, control, evaluate, and improve the performance of complex organizations, taking into consideration people, technology, and information systems. Industrial engineers use operations research, information engineering, and human factors tools and methods to improve and optimize systems operations and performance.
Industrial engineers share the common goal of increasing an organization’s efficiency, profitability and safety in a variety of industries including health care, finance, retail, entertainment, government, information technology, transportation, energy, manufacturing, and consulting. Unlike traditional disciplines in engineering and the mathematical sciences, IE addresses the role of the human decision-maker as a key contributor to the inherent complexity of systems and the primary benefactor of the analyses.
Industrial Engineering bears close resemblance to: Management Science, Management Engineering, Operations Research, Operations Management, and Systems Engineering.
The objective of the Industrial Engineering program curriculum is to educate engineers who:
  • Employ effective analysis and design tools;
  • Integrate perspectives into a systems view of the organization; and
  • Understand both the theory and the practice of Industrial Engineering.

In the first two years of the curriculum, emphasis is placed on fundamental principles of engineering and core industrial engineering concepts. Tools taught in second year include: probability, psychology for engineers, fundamentals of object oriented programming, engineering economics and accounting, operations research, differential equations, statistics, human centered systems design, and data modeling.
In the third year, students learn various perspectives on the operation of organizations, including productivity, information, ergonomics, and economics.  They also select technical electives allowing them to specialize in information engineering, operations research and human factors, and investigate other IE areas such as business process engineering, design of information systems and facility planning. These same courses may be taken as fourth-year technical electives (schedule permitting). Therefore, students may use their fourth year electives to pursue their specialization further in depth, or to investigate other IE areas.
In fourth year, the central theme is the design and management of an organization as an integrated system. All students participate in an Integrated Systems Design course to design the business processes of an organization, and a Capstone Design course that requires students to draw on knowledge from all years of the IE program to tackle a real-world project with an industry partner. There is also a research thesis option.
Job opportunities for IE graduates are very diverse and offer challenging careers in a wide variety of industries, including consulting. Three prototypical jobs for new graduates include:
•    Manage an organizational supply chain to ensure new products can be successfully introduced into global sales channels.
•    Test the interaction features of a new software application.
•    Identify increased capacity requirements necessary to accommodate the expected surgical volume of hospitals.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING (AEMECBASC)

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT COUNSELLOR:
Ms Carla Baptista
Room MC109, Mechanical Engineering Building 
416-978-6420

The Mechanical Engineering profession faces unprecedented challenges and exciting opportunities in its efforts to serve the needs of society. The broad disciplinary base and design orientation of the field will continue to make the skills of the mechanical engineer crucial to the success of virtually all technical systems that involve energy, motion, materials, design, automation and manufacturing. The explosive growth in the availability of lower-cost, compact and high speed computing hardware and software is already revolutionizing the analysis, design, manufacture and operation of many mechanical engineering systems. Mechanical engineering systems are part of automotive engineering, robotics, fuel utilization, nuclear and thermal power generation, materials behaviour in design applications, transportation, biomechanical engineering, environmental control and many others.
To prepare Mechanical Engineers for the challenges of such a broad discipline, the program is designed to:
   (i) Provide fundamental knowledge of the various subdisciplines;
   (ii) Teach methodology and systems analysis techniques for integrating this knowledge into useful design concepts, and
   (iii)  Make graduates fully conversant with modern facilities, such as CAD/CAM and microprocessor control, by which design concepts can be produced and competitively manufactured.
 The knowledge component includes the key subdisciplines of mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, control theory, dynamics, material science and design. All are based on adequate preparation in mathematics and in such fundamental subjects as physics and chemistry.
 Integration of this knowledge is accomplished in third and fourth year courses. Students select many upper-year courses from a list of electives, permitting them to choose subjects compatible with their individual interests. Most technical elective courses from one of five streams or subject areas: Manufacturing, Mechatronics, Solid Mechanics and Machine Design, Energy and Environment or Bioengineering. Students are encouraged to select a sequence of courses from two of the five streams, acquiring greater depth of knowledge in those areas.The fourth year Capstone Design course encompasses all aspects of the program as students complete a two-term design project for an industrial partner or client. Students also have the option of doing a one or two term thesis in the fourth year, allowing independent study and research with a university faculty member.
 With this diverse background, virtually all industries seek the services of the practicing mechanical engineer as an employee or a consultant. Mechanical engineers are involved in the primary power production industry where hydraulic, thermal and nuclear energy is converted to electricity; in integrated manufacturing of automobiles and other equipment; in aircraft and other transportation systems; in the heating and air conditioning industry; in the design and manufacture of electronic hardware; in materials processing plants and many others industries.
 For the modern mechanical engineer, the undergraduate program is only the first step in this educational process. An increasing number of graduates pursue advanced degrees in particular areas of specialization. Graduates entering industry can continue their education by participating in the graduate program. For further details please see the information following the program outline.

ASSOCIATE CHAIR, UNDERGRADUATE:
Professor John Harrison

Mineral engineering encompasses those activities necessary to extract and process natural mineral resources. The Lassonde Mineral Engineering Program is comprehensive, covering topics from the entire scope of minerals engineering: from geology and mineral exploration, through analysis and design of surface and underground excavations, mechanical and explosive excavation of geological materials, planning and management of mines and quarries, processing of metallic, non‑metallic and industrial minerals, safety and environmental protection, and on to financial aspects of minerals operations. This wide range of topics means that the program is truly interdisciplinary, using concepts and techniques from mathematics, physics, chemistry, geology and economics; in the setting of the University of Toronto it is thus both interdepartmental and interfaculty, with the Departments of Civil Engineering, Geology and Materials Science and Engineering contributing to the program. As Toronto is a world centre for mining and mining finance, the program is able to maintain close links with the minerals industry, and thus invites recognised experts from various branches of the industry to deliver state-of-the-art treatment of specialised topics within the curriculum.

The first year of the four-year curriculum is similar to that of other engineering programs at the University. All subsequent years are unique to the Lassonde Mineral Engineering Program, with transfer into Year 2 of Mineral Engineering being permitted from both the General Engineering first year and other engineering programs. Year 2 concentrates on minerals engineering fundamentals, and years 3 and 4 comprise a minerals engineering core supplemented by technical electives. A wide range of technical electives are available, thereby allowing students to specialise should they so wish in one particular branch of minerals engineering. Students also study humanities and complementary studies electives in the final two years. Practical aspects of the program are presented through laboratory sessions, and students attend one survey and one geology field camp, each of two weeks duration. Students are encouraged and helped to obtain industrial experience during summer vacations, and have the opportunity to take a Professional Experience Year between years 3 and 4. Attractive entrance and in-course scholarships and bursaries are available, including the prestigious, competitively awarded Lassonde Scholarships.

Graduates obtain a comprehensive training in minerals engineering, and are well prepared for future challenges in the planning and financing of mineral and related engineering projects as well as for graduate study in mining, geological, or civil engineering. The program is accredited with the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

There will be many occasions where students are required to use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including safety footwear bearing the CSA Green Patch, hard hats, protective eyewear with side shields, tear away safety vests and ear protection.  Students are required to purchase their own PPE.  All field trips, laboratories, and other events require advance briefing on the nature of potential hazards and students are required to attend these briefings and to follow the provided instructions.

PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENT
Students are required to have completed a total of 600 hours of acceptable practical experience before graduation (normally during their summer vacation periods).  Satisfactory completion of CME358H1 - Survey Camp (Civil and Mineral Practicals), and MIN400H1 - Geology Camp will contribute 200 hours towards this requirement.  Satisfactory completion of the Professional Experience Year (PEY) will also completely fulfill the Practical Experience Requirement.
PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE YEAR
Students registered within this program, and all other undergraduate programs within the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, may elect to enrol and participate in the Professional Experience Year (PEY) program.  The PEY program requires that qualified students undertake a paid, full-time 12-16 month continuous work period with a cooperating company.  Details are described in the beginning of this chapter.  For more information, consult the Professional Experience Year Office, 222 College Street, Suite 106 early in session 2F or 3F.
SUMMER FIELD CAMP

An August Field Camp must be completed by all Lassonde Mineral Engineering students in the summer before Fourth Year.  Results of the course are used to compute the Fourth Year Fall Session average.  An extra fee is charged to cover part of the cost of transportation, food, and accommodation.

MINORS AND CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS

Several Engineering Minors and Certificate Programs are available and generally require the student to successfully complete a carefully selected slate of electives in their Fourth Year.  Late in the Third Year Winter Session, students use an on-line pre-registration tool to indicate their preferred fourth-year electives.  Students should review the various minor and certificate program requirements and attend the department's information sessions in Third Year to ensure that the appropriate electives are taken in Fourth Year.  Students should note that they can also complete the requirements of a minor or certificate program even after they have graduated, as long as the additional requirements are met within nine years of their initial registration in the BASc program.  If completed after graduation, additional fees will be assessed, and a transcript will be issued with the amended courses and indication of completed minor or certificate program requirements.

JEFFREY SKOLL BASC/MBA PROGRAM

The Jeffrey Skoll Combined BASc/MBA Program allows qualified and selected students in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering to complete both a BASc and an MBA in a reduced time.  Students will be admitted to the program prior to entering their fourth year of studies in the BASc program.  Interested students should contact the Rotman School of Management.

GRADUATE TRAINING IN MINERAL ENGINEERING

Students with the necessary qualifications (generally at least a B+ average in the final year of the undergraduate program) who wish to proceed to graduate studies may do so through the Lassonde Institute, an interdisciplinary research institute for engineering geoscience.  The Department of Civil Engineering, the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, the Department of Geology, and the Collaborative Program in Geophysics are all collaborators in the Lassonde Institute.

The Engineering Departments offer programs leading to the MASc, MEng, and PhD degrees.  Other Departments offer MSc and PhD degree programs.  Additional information may be obtained at www.lassondeinstitute.utoronto.ca or the websites of the collaborating Departments.
