Year 1

Below briefly describes the courses Engineering Science students will take in their first year of studies. Read the complete listing.

Fall Semester

  • Structures and Materials introduces properties of various structures and materials, as well as their use.
  • Praxis I gets students to address on-campus design challenges through hands-on activities and presentations.
  • Classical Mechanics gives an understanding of Newtonian mechanics, and considers the interactions which influence motion in terms of force, momentum and energy. **Includes Labs**
  • Engineering Mathematics and Computation bridges high school and university mathematics, and makes connections to the “engineering point of view.”
  • Calculus I is the first course in a series of calculus courses found in the first 2 years, and includes theory and application of differential and integral calculus.
  • Computer Programming, required of all students, provides a well-rounded understanding of programming theory and application. Topics include: Variables, Functions, Conditions, Loops, Strings, Files, Dictionaries, Exceptions and Graphs. Language Used: Python

Winter Semester

  • Molecules and Materials provides fundamentals of molecular chemistry as it relates to the properties of materials.
  • Linear Algebra provides an understanding of linear systems and matrix algebra and their applications in engineering.
  • Calculus II, a continuation from the course in first semester, offers a more advanced exploration into the subject, including multivariable functions and partial derivatives.
  • Electric Circuits focuses on the theory and application of electric circuits. **Includes Labs**
  • Computer Programming, The second semester of Computer Programming builds on the foundations introduced in the Fall Semester. Programming Languages: Python, C
  • Praxis II gets students to address design challenges facing the City of Toronto through hands-on activities and presentations.
