ACADIA'S ENGINEERING PROGRAMS
The Ivan Curry School of Engineering at Acadia University was founded in 1904 and offers programs of study leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Applied Science and Bachelor of Engineering. The Bachelor of Engineering degrees require a minimum of four years to complete and are delivered through cooperative arrangements with Dalhousie University. The Bachelor of Applied Science degree requires three years of study and is completed entirely on the Acadia campus.
1st Year Students
First year engineering curriculum is set for the first term, as there are no electives. Students can be completely pre-registered by the Engineering Department or if they would prefer to sign up for themselves, the required courses for the 2014-15 scholastic year are as follows:
APSC 1073, APSC 1223, MATH 1013, PHYS 1013, CHEM 1013
APSC 1113, APSC 1413, MATH 1023, PHYS 1023, CHEM 1023 and MATH 1323
Students are expected to select an engineering discipline as they enter their second year of study. Upon completion of the Acadia portion of the program, the student is awarded our Certificate in Applied Science, which guarantees admission to the partner institution of choice with full transfer of credit.
Bachelor of Applied Science
The Bachelor of Applied Science degree consists of 30 credits. It generally requires 3 years of study and may be completed entirely on the Acadia campus. Completion of CAS credits count towards the BASc requirements.
Bachelor of Applied Science (90h) - Calendar Description
1. 33h Applied Science
2. 18h mathematics in consultation with the school and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics
3. 18h from the Faculty of Pure and Applied Science in topics other than mathematics or applied science, with 6h at the 2000-level or higher
4. 15h outside of the Faculty of Pure and Applied Science.
5. 6h from business or the Faculty of Pure and Applied Science.
A minimum program GPA of 2.0 is required in order to graduate
Certificate of Applied Science
(First 2 Years of the 4 Year Accredited Engineering Degree)
The Bachelor of Engineering degree is accredited by the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers and usually takes four years to complete. Once you complete their Engineering Degree and work for three years under the direct supervision of a Professional Engineer, you can apply to become Professional Engineers yourself. Co-op work experience counts towards the three year supervised work requirement.
Acadia University offers the first two years (23 credits) of the four year (46 credit) Engineering degree with our Certificate of Applied Science. Acadia students usually choose to complete the final two years of the degree at Dalhousie University, however, you do have the option to apply to other universities if you wish.
Once you have reserved your placement and received the Certificate of Applied Science from Acadia University, you are guaranteed admission into the 3rd year of the Dalhousie Engineering Degree program. The Dalhousie transfer process is facilitated through the Acadia and Dalhousie administrative offices. You may specialize in one of the eight following disciplines offered at Dalhousie University.
