B. Electrical Engineering and Management Option


Admission Requirements

Normally, students apply to the HBA program during their second year in Engineering by the published deadline. Application for the combined program is made during the first year in the HBA program. Students applying to the Ivey Business Schoolís Academic Excellence Opportunity (AEO) are also eligible to be considered for the combined program. Admission to the program is competitive and limited. Upon completion of the program students will receive both an HBA and a BESc degree.

To be eligible for the concurrent program, all students, including those admitted via the AEO route, must have completed all the requirements of the first year curriculum in the Faculty of Engineering and the second year program in Option B in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Students must obtain a weighted average (YWA) of 78% in each year. During the second year of the program students are required to complete Business Administration 257 with a minimum grade of 70%. Engineering students may take Business Administration 257 during Intersession either after their first or second year. Demonstrated participation in extra curricular and/or community activities, leadership and work experience are also admission criteria.


Progression Standards

Students in this concurrent program must meet the following progression standards: Students enrolled in first year HBA (Year Three) must attain at least 78%.

In Years Four and Five, students must attain a minimum weighted average of 75% in their 400 level HBA courses and a 75% average in their Engineering courses.


Failure to Meet Progression Standards

A student who fails to meet the progression standards in any year must withdraw from the concurrent program. However, a student who has met the progression standards of either the HBA or BESc program will be allowed to proceed to the next year of that program. If the progression standards of both individual programs have been satisfied, the student may continue in either program and may petition the School or Faculty whose program was not selected for permission to complete that program at a later date. A student who is required to withdraw from the concurrent program and wishes to pursue either or both of the individual programs, must complete all the degree requirements of the individual program or programs in order to graduate from that/those program(s).
