Integrated Engineering

Integrated Engineering (IGEN) is a multi-disciplinary engineering program that places a strong focus on team-based engineering design by means of three full year project courses. In addition to developing a broad foundation in engineering, the student develops primary and secondary knowledge in specific engineering disciplines via 18 credits of technical electives in third and fourth year.

Completion of a B.A.Sc. in Integrated Engineering will normally take four years of study. Students may enter the program from first-year Applied Science or via transfer from the first-year Science or Engineering transfer program at a community college. Students entering from first-year Science will normally have course deficiencies that must be made up. Consult the IGEN Student Advisor for assistance in such cases.

There is a Co-operative Education option (Co-op) where students normally take eight academic semesters and five Co-op semesters over a five-year period. Students normally apply for Co-op between January of first year and September of the second year of the program. Visit Engineering Co-op for more information.

All inquiries concerning the program should be directed to the Program Director. See Integrated Engineering for contact information.
