Faculty of Engineering : Engineering Programs
Applications from students who were required to withdraw for academic reasons will not be considered until the required withdrawal period has been completed (see Undergraduate Information under Requirement to Withdraw from the University . In addition to satisfying the Undergraduate requirements for re-admission to the University, it is expected that before re-applying to the program, students will successfully complete transferable courses that demonstrate improved academics (with all grades C+ (65%) or higher) in relevant subject areas. A student who was required to withdraw will be placed on academic probation upon re-admission to the BEng or BSEng program and must obtain Satisfactory Standing at the next standing review. See Standing.
Students not completing their programs within the specified time limits must have their program extension approved by the Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programs. The starting month in determining the length of a student's program is the first month in which courses are taken in the BEng or BSEng programs at UVic.
Any request for a review of a final grade must normally reach the Engineering Undergraduate Office within 21 days after the release of assigned grades.
Approval may be given, at the discretion of the Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programs for a student to replace one or more BEng or BSEng degree program courses with other acceptable courses. Written approval must be obtained in advance. Normally, such replacement courses will be taken at UVic. When a replacement course is to be taken at another institution, the student must obtain a Letter of Permission from the Engineering Undergraduate Office prior to undertaking the studies. See Letters of Permission for UVic Students to Undertake Studies Elsewhere.
For academic regulations regarding deferred status, please see page 61of the Calendar.
Applications for supplemental examinations, accompanied by the required fees, must be received by the departmental office by the dates indicated in table “Supplemental Examination Dates and Deadlines.”
The Faculty of Engineering may grant credit to applicants to the BEng or BSEng degree program for courses taken at UVic or at other post-secondary educational institutions. A Letter of Permission must be obtained from the Engineering Undergraduate Office prior to undertaking studies at another institution for credit towards the UVic degree program. See Letters of Permission for UVic Students to Undertake Studies Elsewhere Credit will be considered only for courses that are equivalent to courses in the BEng or BSEng degree program and in which satisfactory performance has been achieved. For courses with prefixes BME, CIVE, CENG, ELEC, ENGR, MECH and SENG, detailed documentation supporting the credit request may be required; students should contact the Engineering Undergraduate Office for specific instructions before beginning studies in the faculty. Credit for courses completed while outside the Faculty of Engineering will only be granted for courses in which a grade of C (60%) or higher has been awarded on the official transcript. For some courses a higher minimum grade may be required. For courses taken prior to admission to the program, the student must initiate all requests for course credit in the first term (four months) of registration in the BEng or BSEng program.
Students must meet the normal University Minimum Degree Requirements for Graduation including a graduating average of at least 2.0, as well as:
