Engineering Entrepreneurship Option

The Engineering Entrepreneurship Option (EEO) consists of eight courses as an optional addition to any of the nine B.E. degrees. Six, and up to seven, courses are delivered in the Edwards School of Business. The program capstone course (GE 430.0 Engineering Entrepreneurship Capstone) is taught in the College of Engineering.

Students must follow the program of study that was in place at the time of their entrance to the College of Engineering. However, the College reserves the right to make necessary program adjustments. It is recommended that students contact the Engineering Student Centre to confirm their program of study on a regular basis.

The recommended schedule for courses required in the EEO is as follows:


To be admitted to the option, students must apply to the Engineering Student Centre. Engineering students must have completed 60 credit units towards a B.E. degree (that is, have completed second year) and have achieved and must maintain a 65% Sessional Weighted Average. They must also have credit for a course covering elementary probability and statistics (eg. GE 210, EE  216, ME 251) before they enroll in COMM 205 (for which COMM 104 is prerequisite). Students add one course per term in third and fourth year of their engineering degree and stay on for an additional term in a fifth year to complete two additional courses and the capstone course. In some engineering programs, up to six credit units from the EEO may be used to satisfy the "business science elective" requirement but the remaining 15 credit units must be used only to satisfy the EEO.

GE 430.0 (3L) is a seminar course in Engineering that requires COMM 357 and 477 as corequisites (must be taken in the same term).
