SELF-SERVE REGISTRATION

All information is available online for you to be able to self-serve. This link guides you through every step (a video tutorial is also available at the bottom of their page).

Registration in specific course sections is on a first-come first-serve basis. Students are strongly recommended to register for the Fall and Winter terms at the beginning of the registration cycle.

TROUBLESHOOTING

1) Pop-up that "your pre-requisites are not met"

a) If you are registering for a course for the 1st time and are getting this pop-up message, please come to the BCEE Reception at S-EV 6139 to speak to a BCEE Advisor (you may drop-in at reception - there is no need to take an appointment);

b) If you are registering for a course that you have previously failed one (1) or two (2) times, and are getting this pop-up message, please come to the BCEE Reception at S-EV 6139 to speak to a BCEE Advisor (you may drop-in at reception - there is no need to take an appointment);

c) HOWEVER, if you are registering for a course that you have previously failed three (3) times, and are getting this pop-up message, you must fill out a particular student request form directly at the Student Academic Services at EV002.125 (we will not be able to help at the departmental level); 

2) Pop-up that you have an "account balance"

If you are getting this pop-up message, please go to the Birks Student Service Center at LB001.185 - until you no longer see this pop-up, registration cannot be done by our BCEE Advisors. Note that it takes about five (5) days after payment of any amount due for the pop-up message to disappear.

3) For any other types of registration blocks, please go to Student Academic Services at EV002.125.

General

How many courses?

Full-time students take from 4 to 6 courses per semester, depending on the following factors:

  • The amount of time you have for study: each lecture hour needs an average of about two hours of “outside” work while each laboratory hour needs about one-half hour of “outside” work.
  • The nature of the courses: more time is needed for the supporting courses.
  • Your learning skills, which you can improve through Student Learning Services.
  • Your current GPA and the target GPA. See acceptable GPA.

In general, it is a much better strategy to take fewer courses but learn them well. Learn well the supporting courses, and you will learn faster and more effectively the subsequent courses. Success in the fundamental courses of the first year is therefore particularly crucial.

What order should I take my courses in?

You should adhere to the Standard Course Sequences in order to avoid scheduling conflicts or lack of pre-requisites.

Click here for the specific Building Engineering course sequence.

Click here for the specific Civil Engineering course sequence.

Out-of-sequence

Out-of-sequence students may encounter scheduling conflicts, lack of prerequisites, or finding certain courses not offered. Thus, out-of-sequence students should try to get back into sequence as soon as possible. To avoid the problem in the first place, you should make extra effort to pass the pre-requisite courses.

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. The Tentative Course Schedule may be used as a guide in your planning.
