Engineering Entrepreneurship Option
The Engineering Entrepreneurship Option (EEO) consists of eight courses as an optional addition to any of the eight 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.
All undergraduate students within the College of Engineering are required to complete a first-year common core. Students that secure admission to a specific upper-year discipline must follow the program of study that was in place at the time of their admission to an upper-year academic discipline, recognizing that course and program changes may result in modification to the original program of study. 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 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). Normally, 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. For exceptions to this schedule, please see an Academic Advisor or the Engineering Entrepreneurship Option Coordinator. 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).
