Entry into the Honours Program
The Honours program is a limited enrolment program and entry is highly competitive. There is no direct entry to the Honours program in the first year. Students may enter the Honours program in the following ways:
- Students from CEGEP will be admitted, on the basis of their grades, at the start of the third term.
- Students from outside Quebec will be admitted, on the basis of their grades, at the start of the fifth term.
To be considered for entry into the Honours program, a student MUST COMPLETE AT LEAST 14 CREDITS in each term since entering Electrical, Computer or Software Engineering. To remain in the Honours program, the same credit minimum applies and a CGPA of at least 3.30 must be maintained. In either of their final two full terms (i.e., Fall and Winter, or Winter and Fall) students may drop below 14 credits, provided the combined load for the two terms is at least 16 credits.
