Admission Requirements

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