Faculty of Engineering : Computer Engineering
PHYS 110, 111, or 122, 125
Students are admitted to the Biomedical Option at the beginning of their 2A term. Enrolment is limited and students are cautioned that they must apply for admission and be admitted before registering in any of the option-required courses. In addition to the standard Computer Engineering program courses, the Biomedical Option requires completion of the following four courses:
BME 200 (1.5)
BME 201 (1.5)
ECE 335 (1.5)
ECE 435 (1.5)
ECE 434 (1.5)
PHYS 432 (1.5)
Notes: Students in this option may take EPHE 141 and BIOL 225 in lieu of BME 200 and 201, but must then take BIOL 190A as their Science Elective. BIOL 190A and BIOL 225 cover prerequisite material necessary for admission to the medical program at UBC. Please refer to the UBC medical program requirements at <mdprogram.med.ubc.ca/admissions/admission-requirements>.
CSC 475 (1.5)
ECE 4846 (1.5)
MUS 401C (1.5)
MUS 406A (1.5)
MUS 406B (1.5)
MUS 4077 (3.0)
The department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers outstanding undergraduate students an opportunity for a head start in a master's program. Qualified students will be permitted to enrol in graduate-level courses during their fourth year as outlined in Registration by Undergraduates in Graduate Courses (https://web.uvic.ca/calendar/grad/registration/undergrad-registration.html). These courses will be in addition to any undergraduate requirements and thus can be transferred to the MASc or MEng degree program. All of the admission and transfer credit regulations of the Faculty of Graduate Studies must be met. For more information, please contact the Chair or the Graduate Adviser of the department.
The program requires completion of seven technical electives (10.5 units) to be chosen from the lists3 below. Students who complete three courses (4.5 units) in one of the specialization areas listed below can request a letter from the Electrical and Computer Engineering office confirming this; the area will not be shown on the transcript.
Note that some courses appear under more than one category. Not all technical elective courses will be offered every year. Please check the department course schedule website for planning.
Students normally must successfully complete ENGR 130 (Introduction to Professional Practice) before undertaking their first work term.
CSC 115 may be substituted in a term when CSC 116 is not offered. CSC 116 is strongly recommended.
A course in natural science as required by CEAB guidelines and as approved by the Faculty of Engineering. Students may choose a course from a pre-approved list: https://www.uvic.ca/engineering/current-students/planning/index.php or seek permission from the Engineering Undergraduate Office (EUO).
MUS 407 is a two-term course taken in the fall and spring.
Students normally take ENGR 446 in the term preceding the final term of their academic programme (academic or work term.)
ENGR 297 may also be offered in other terms.
