Admission Requirements

The Electrical Engineering and Artificial Intelligence Systems Engineering (option M) is a limited-enrollment program. Upon completion, students will receive two degrees: a BESc in Electrical Engineering and a BESc in Artificial Intelligence Systems Engineering (non-accredited). Admission to Option M is competitive; meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. Students apply to Option M while in first-year through the Intent-to-Register process. To be eligible for Option M, 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%.
