Semester Planner

Plan Advice: Any relevant information regarding your semester plan will appear below.

CHOOSE AN ELECTIVE: If you have selected fewer than four subjects in Semester 1 or Semester 2, you must select courses to fill them.

A second science course such as PHYS102, CHEM112 or COSC122 is a good idea to keep a pathway open into a related BSc major. Other popular choices are management or geological sciences but you may take courses from other science, forestry, arts, humanities, health, education or law subjects.

WARNING: Special permission is needed for more than 60 points in a semester. Please change your chosen Discipline Options to reduce contraints and discuss with an Engineering Student Advisor at the end of semester 1.

WARNING: Consult Engineering Student Advisors: You cannot take more than 30 points in the summer semester. EMTH171 may not be needed in Semester 2, in which case COSC122 can be taken then instead.

NOTE: COSC122 is available in the summer.

NOTE: EMTH119 is available in the summer.

NOTE: ENGR102 is available in the summer, however, it must be taken with or after EMTH119, not before it.

CHEM111 is available in both semesters, so can be taken in semester 2 as long as you are not taking CHEM112.

If you have achieved high grades or excellence endorsement in Maths, Physics, and/or Chemistry, you may be eligible for a Modified Intermediate Year or Direct Entry into the First Professional Year (2nd Year). See the following link:

Because you did not do AS Level Chemistry, enrolment in Headstart Chemistry during the previous summer is strongly advised.

MATH101 cannot be counted as an elective. You may be required to take a further elective. Please contact Engineering Student Advisors to discuss.


Consult Student Advisors if instructed to do so, otherwise you're good to go!

Student Advisors can be contacted at and will get back to you as soon as possible.
