For an application to be considered, the student must be eligible for at least third-year standing in the Faculty of Applied Science with a cumulative average of at least 68% in the previous two years.

One of COMM 329, 458 or 473 3
An engineering economics course appropriate for the department in which the student is enrolled 3
1 Students who have completed ECON 101 and 102 prior to entry into the program may use this course in lieu of ECON 310 and 311. Either Economics course may be used as the humanities and social sciences elective component of the complementary studies courses. Some programs will allow a maximum of 3 credits of Commerce courses to count towards the technical electives requirement.

Minor in Commerce students will take two years to obtain the necessary course requirements due to prerequisites.
