The Engineering Entrepreneurship Option (EEO) consists of seven courses (21 credit units) as an optional addition to any of the eight B.E. degrees. Six of the seven courses are delivered in the Edwards School of Business. The program capstone course (GE 430.0 Engineering Entrepreneurship Capstone) is taught in the College of Engineering. The recommended schedule for courses required in the EEO is as follows:
Term 1 COMM 201.3 Accounting and Business Decision Making Term 2 COMM 204.3 Introduction to Marketing
Term 1 COMM 349.3 Introduction to Entrepreneurship Term 2 COMM 304.3 Introduction to Business Law
Term 1 GE 430.0 Engineering Entrepreneurship Capstone COMM 357.3 Marketing Research COMM 447.3 Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management
EEO Elective(select one additional course) COMM 205.3 Introduction to Operation Management COMM 210.3 Introduction to Management Accounting COMM 493.3 Total Quality Management or RCM 4xx.3 approved elective
To be admitted to the option, students must apply to the Dean's Office. Engineering students must have completed 60 credit units towards a B.E. degree (that is, have completed second year) and have achieved and must maintain a 65% Sessional Weighted Average. They must also have credit for a course covering elementary probability and statistics (eg. CHE 311, GE 210, EE 216, ME 251) before they enrol in COMM 205 (for which COMM 104 is prerequisite). Students add one course per term in third and fourth year of their engineering degree and stay on for an additional term in a fifth year to complete two additional courses and the capstone course. In some engineering programs, up to six credit units from the EEO may be used to satisfy the "business science elective" requirement but the remaining 15 credit units must be used only to satisfy the EEO.
G E 430.0 (3P) is a seminar course in Engineering that requires COMM 357 and 477 as corequisites (must be taken in the same term).
