Course Selection

Here is the recommended course sequence for first-year students. The table presents the core courses that you must take in your first two years. The elective credits are a suggestion only because each program stream (see Stream Requirements for more information) has specific requirements that will be satisfied by your selection of electives. Remember that some courses have a laboratory component (marked in bold red) that must be taken in the SAME term and you must register in these along with the lecture section.
