Faculty of Engineering - Civil and Environmental Engineering

Admission Requirements

The Civil Engineering and Artificial Intelligence Systems Engineering (AISE), Smart Cities and Structural Engineering (Option H) is a limited-enrollment program. Upon completion, students will receive two degrees: a BESc in Civil Engineering and a BESc in Artificial Intelligence Systems Engineering (non-accredited). Admission to Option H is competitive; meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. Students apply to Option H while in first-year through the Intent-toRegister process. To be eligible for Option H, all of the requirements of the first-year curriculum in the Faculty of Engineering must be completed with a minimum yearweighted average (YWA) of 75%.

Students who entered the Engineering Program in September 2021 will continue to follow their original AISE program progression.
