Frequently Asked Questions
Registration in specific course sections is on a first-come first-serve basis. Students are strongly recommended to register for immediately at the beginning of the registration cycle. For complete registration info as well as exact start dates please consult Course Registration.
Additional rules regarding registration regulations and pre-requisites are outlined in the Undergraduate Calendar.
Full-time students take from 4 to 6 courses per semester. You should adhere to the suggested Course Sequences for your program in order to avoid scheduling conflicts or lack of pre-requisites.
If you feel that you need a reduced course load, or have any other concerns, please see your Undergraduate Program Assistant for advice before dropping any of your courses.
Students who are out-of-sequence students may encounter scheduling conflicts, lack of prerequisites, or finding certain courses unavailable. Thus, out-of-sequence students should try to get back into sequence as soon as possible. To ease the preceding difficulties, many common core courses are offered in the evening, or in both fall and winter semesters, or in the summer as well.
If you are anticipating a change of sequence, please follow the steps below and consult with your Undergraduate Program Assistant/Director as necessary.
Step 1: Download the current official Course Sequence. Check off your completed courses (and those in progress).
Step 2: Review the pre-requisite requirements for your remaining courses. You can use the Un-Official Sequence Flowcharts in addition to the course descriptions in the Undergraduate Calendar to assist you. Please note that the Undergraduate Calendar is the only official listing of rules and regulations, including pre-requisite requirements.
Step 3: Research the availability of your necessary courses using the current Class Schedule or our ENCS Course Schedules (which includes previously offered summer courses). Please note that our schedule may change from year to year so there is no guarantee of availability, but it is a good place to start your planning.
Step 4: Draft out a plan of your remaining courses. You may use this Sequence Template if you wish. Note: Co-op students may have additional requirements. Please review your Co-op Handbook for details.
Step 5: Have your Undergraduate Program Assistant/Director review and approve your plan.
Specific Course Information
To fulfill the requirements of the General Education Elective or General Electives, students may choose from the three approved lists found in section 71.110 of the current Undergraduate Calendar. These include Social Sciences, Humanities and Other Complementary Studies.
Students in the Extended Credit Program (ECP) or the Mature Entry Program (MEP) (see §14.2.3) or any other students who have been assigned credits in Humanities and Social Sciences must select those credits from Social Sciences and Humanities only. Those credits cannot be chosen from the list of Other Complementary Studies.
Students work on a research project in their area of concentration, selected in consultation with and conducted under the supervision of a faculty member of the Department. The student’s work must culminate in a final report, as well as an oral presentation. Find out more.
The Capstone Engineering Design project is a supervised design, simulation or experimental project involving the definition of a design problem, carrying out the research and design, and demonstrating results. Teams consist of 5-7 students. Capstone provides students the opportunity to demonstrate good judgment, challenge and enhance their ability to solve open-ended design problems, and improve team work skills. Solving real industrial problems is encouraged and is facilitated by course coordinators and project supervisors.
Co-op offers practical experience opportunities to students in about 40 academic programs across all faculties in the university at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Explore the list of available Co-op programs in each faculty. Each section explains the breakdown of the program’s study/work sequence and describes the tasks you might be asked to do:
In addition to Co-op programs, we offer alternative work term options to students studying in Engineering and Computer Science, Computation Arts, Design, Journalism and Physics.The Industrial Experience Option and Professional Experience Option offer similar benefits as our regular Co-op programs, but in a different format.
Are you looking to enhance your education with real industry-driven experience?
At the Concordia Institute of Aerospace Design and Innovation (CIADI), top students are selected to work in a stimulating and challenging engineering environment supervised by industry engineers and university professors. Through industry-driven research projects, the institute provides "an initiation to research" for students who may want to pursue graduate studies in aerospace. The institute is an excellent learning opportunity for undergraduate students to get to know the aerospace industry through organized visits and tours to its industrial partners.
