The ECE Undergraduate Studies Committee feels strongly about this 75% requirement. If they are going to adjustthe prerequisites for their course to have more students from outside ECE taking them, they want those students tobe properly prepared.Numerical Methods. Numerical methods were not historically included in the SE Option, and are not part of thecore SE degree program. Nevertheless, numerical methods are a central part of the role that computing plays inmost traditional engineering disciplines, and FOPS felt strongly that these courses should be included.Linkage Elective: Professional responsibility is an important part of Engineering, and the SE Option has alwaysrecognized this by requiring linkage electives. The current SE Option for Engineering students requires 4 linkageelectives, whereas the definition for BCS students requires only 1 linkage elective. This revision includes just onelinkage elective, aligning with the definition of the SE Option/Specialization for BCS students. The list ofpermissible linkage electives has been updated.Current Calendar Text:New Calendar Text (clean because of the number of changes)The Software Engineering Option is available to all students in the Faculty of Engineering (includingArchitecture), except students in Software Engineering.This Option is offered jointly by the Faculty of Engineering and the David R. Cheriton School of ComputerScience in the Faculty of Mathematics. Given that the Option involves two faculties, it has slightly differentrealizations in those faculties.For students in the Faculty of Engineering, this Option requires a total of eight courses.• Three required courses:CourseTitleCS 445/ECE 451 or SE 463Software Requirements Specification and AnalysisCS 446/ECE 452 or SE 464Software Design and ArchitecturesCS 447/ECE 453 or SE 465Software Testing, Quality Assurance and MaintenanceSoftware Testing and Quality Assurance• Four additional courses from the topics list below, one of which may be substituted with a course from the datastructures and algorithms list.• One course from List A Complementary Studies Electives for Engineering Students that considers application ofcomputing technology, or an alternative approved by the option co-ordinator.The courses chosen to satisfy this option must satisfy four additional constraints:68 of 99
Senate Undergraduate Council16 November 2020, Report to Senate (Regular)page 17 of43• They must satisfy Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) requirements.• They must be approved by the option co-ordinator.• Five of the courses must be considered elective (that is, not core requirements) in the student's academic plan.For the purposes of this Option, a course that a student could choose to graduate without will be consideredelective.
