4.11 Combined Programs

An engineering undergraduate degree program may be combined with any other undergraduate degree program on campus. Students may either be admitted to two degree programs when they first apply to the University or may seek admission to a second degree program after being admitted to engineering. Students are reminded that admission to all degree programs at the University of Calgary is competitive and it is the student's responsibility to meet the admission requirements for the second degree program. Students should consult the engineering website or inquire at the Engineering Student Centre for more information.

Students who are admitted to two degree programs when they initially apply to the University of Calgary may opt to spread their first year engineering courses over two years and be admitted to an engineering discipline after their second review period. Interested students must see the Associate Dean (Student Affairs) before the add/drop deadline of their first year to initiate this arrangement.

It is possible for students to opt out of a combined degree program after one year and complete either the BSc (Engineering) or the other degree.

Students may also combine their engineering degree with any minor offered by any faculty at the University of Calgary.

Combined Degree Program, BSc (Engineering)/BComm

The Schulich School of Engineering and the Haskayne School of Business offer a combined degree program leading to a BSc degree in Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Geomatics, Mechanical, or Software Engineering and a BComm degree. The BSc (Engineering)/BComm combined degree program can be completed in five years. Applicants who are interested in pursuing the BSc (Engineering)/BComm combined degree program may apply for direct entry to the combined degree program from high school. Admission to the combined degree program is competitive and based on the admission average calculated for the purpose of admission to Engineering.

Space permitting, students may apply for admission to the combined program after their first year in Schulich at the same time that the choice of a specific engineering major is made (section 3.1 Admission). Students who wish to pursue the BSc (Engineering)/BComm combined degree program must complete the specific course requirements of both Schools. Refer to the Program Details section of Schulich School of Engineering for Engineering courses and Haskayne School of Business for Commerce courses.
