Courses

This page outlines the courses you must take as part of the BSEng curriculum, organized according to our recommended schedule1. There are also additional schedules for your first year of engineering.

While there is some flexibility in how you organize your terms at UVic, following this schedule1 helps you stay on track with the BSEng degree requirements—certain required (core) courses are only offered one time per year, and there are many prerequisites/co-requisites that determine the order courses can be taken, which our recommendations take into account. For help organizing your course schedule, contact one of our friendly program advisors in the Engineering Undergraduate Office.

Consult the UVic calendar for the official list of BSEng program requirements, other approved course substitutions, and to verify course schedules. Information about complementary studies electives, natural science electives, and technical electives can be found on the Curriculum page.

**Important Note: Courses in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ELEC XXX and CENG XXX) are being merged under a new name (ECE XXX) effective May 2018. Please consult the ECE Department website for a list of the new course numbers.**
