First Year Courses

Fall

EECS 1011 - Computational Thinking Through Mechatronics (3 Credits)

Course Description:

The Objectives of 1011 are threefold: providing a first exposure to procedural programming, teaching students a set of soft computing skills (such as reasoning about algorithms, tracing programs, test-driven development), and demonstrating how computers are used in a variety of engineering disciplines. It uses problem-based pedagogy to expose the underlying concepts and an experiential laboratory to implement them. An integrated computing environment (such as MATLAB) is used so that students can pick up key programming concepts(such as variables and control flow) without being exposed to complex or abstract constructs. The problems are chosen with consultation with the various engineering disciplines in the Faculty with a view of exposing how computing is used in these disciplines.

ESSE 4361 - Space Mission Design (3 Credits) - Winter

Course Description:

This course covers the basic aspects of space mission design from a “blank sheet”. It includes mission design structure using systems engineering approaches to the design problem. Mission design starts with a set of mission objectives and aims to develop a viable solution for meeting these objectives given a set of technical cost and programmatic constraints. This course brings together systems engineering, mission types, objectives, technical readiness, risk mitigation, mission subsystems, and cost estimation.

Prerequisites: LE/ESSE 4360 3.00 or permission of the Instructor.

                                                                                      A.General Education Requirement:

non-science requirement: 12 credits;

mathematics: SC/MATH 1013 3.00; SC/MATH 1014 3.00;

computer science: LE/EECS 1011 3.00 or LE/EECS 1541 3.00;

foundational science: SC/PHYS 1011 3.0 and SC/PHYS 1012 3.0 (see approved course substitutes for transfer students;

                                     B.Major Requirements the EATS program core, as specified above (19 credits);

C.Science breadth:

Science breadth: satisfied by above requirements.

                                                                                                     D.Upper level requirement:

A minimum of 42 credits at the 3000 level or higher.

                                                                          E.Additional elective credits, as required, for an overall total of 120 credits.

           F.Standing requirements: a minimum cumulative credit-weighted grade point average of 5.00 (C+) over all courses completed

All Honours BSc degree candidates are encouraged to complete a non-credit industrial internship (normally salaried). This provides experience in a four-month to 12-month placement, normally after the third year of study.

Note: alternatively the first year engineering core would be an acceptable substitute for the first year course
