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).
Undeclared students who qualify for second year standing (those with at least 12 units of applicable coursework, including transfer credit) are given the opportunity to declare their chosen Engineering program (discipline). Students with a minimum qualifying GPA of 3.00 on UVic's 9 point grade scale (equivalent to C+) and no applicable courses with grades less than C will be considered for available seats in the disciplines. All courses that contribute to program requirements, including those beyond 1st year, will be used in qualifying GPA calculations for the program declaration process. With repeated courses, the most recent academic attempt will be used in the qualifying GPA calculation, disregarding the previous attempt. Complementary studies and Natural Science electives are not used in the qualifying GPA calculations. Students with grades below thresholds can contact an admissions advisor to create a plan, improve grades, and re-apply for program declaration at a future date.
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, ECE, 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:
