The five-year Nuclear Engineering and Management program combines the study of nuclear engineering and business.
The first two years of study provide students with a solid foundation in the fundamentals of mathematics and sciences, with Years 3 and 5 concentrating on engineering sciences and specific nuclear engineering courses. In Year 4, students in the management program focus their study on business.
Learning takes place in a variety of settings including lectures, tutorials, field visits, laboratories and via computer simulation – the most extensive computer simulation of nuclear power plants of any engineering program in Ontario.
Senior Engineering Science and Design electives may be taken from other programs in the engineering and science faculties and the Health Physics and Radiation Science program. This program includes liberal arts and complementary studies through business, social sciences and humanities. Upper year courses in economics, ethics and law, and strategic management are also included. Students develop management, interpersonal, problem-solving, and holistic thinking skills while gaining a comprehensive knowledge of nuclear engineering science and design, as well as the latest developments in this field.
Engineering and Management
The Engineering and Management combination programs meet the rapidly increasing need for engineers with the leadership skills to succeed in business and management.
Students study the complete engineering program, and also gain critical management skills in key areas of business including accounting, finance, operations, human resources and marketing.
Students in these programs normally take two semesters of business and management courses for 30 credit hours after successfully completing third year. The regular fourth year of the engineering program is then taken in Year 5 of the program.
Applications to the Bachelor of Engineering and Management will be accepted in the winter semester of a student's third year of study. A minimum CGPA of 2.3 is required to be eligible to apply to the program and to continue in the program. This program may have limited space and applications are considered on a competitive basis. Successful applicants will be notified by the Registrar's office by the end of May after the term of application.
Engineering Science and Engineering Design electives
