*Offered as regular and co-op programs. It is recommended that students wishing to take co-op should apply directly to one of our majors (and its co-op option) rather than "Undeclared". Co-op admission averages will often exceed the estimated averages and students who meet the Regular but not the co-op average will automatically be considered for the Regular stream of the program (see "Alternative Offers"). While it is possible to apply for co-op during first year, entrance for in-course students depends upon space availability well as their in-course average.
