Notes: Update as of July 2006

a) The numbers listed under FTS are headcounts, defined as the count of students pursuing ENSC academic program in an academic year (fall, spring, summer in that order)

b) FTES Is based on total credit hours taken by students in an academic year – 1 FTE = 36 credits

c) Year level is based on completed credit hours prior to start of fall semester

- Final year – students who have completed 108 or more hours prior to start of fall semester

- Final year kess 1 = students who have completed 72 to 107 hours prior to start of fall semester

- Final year less 2 = students who have completed 36 to 71 hours prior to start of fall semester

- Final year less 3 = students who have completed fewer than 36 credit hours prior to start of fall semester



d) All engineering science undergraduate students are considered full-time students

SECTION 2C

CURRICULUM CONTENT ANALYSIS

2C.1 PROGRAM SPECIFICATIONS:
PROGRAM NAME: ENGINEERING SCIENCE
OPTIONS:

  • Biomedical Engineering

  • Computer Engineering

  • Electronics Engineering

  • Engineering Physics

  • Systems Engineering

PROGRAM DURATION:



  • Honors 4 2/3 Years

  • General 4 1/3 Years


TOTAL NUMBER OF ACADEMIC TERMS: 8
AVERAGE ACADEMIC TERM DURATION: 13

2C.2 ANALYSIS OF CURRICULYM CONTENT:
For courses with fixed contact hours, the AUs in the following tables were calculated based on the following rule: 1 hour of lecture per week in a 13 week semester amounts to 13 AUs whereas one hour of laboratory or tutorial per week in a 13 week semester amounts to 6.5 AUs.
For courses that do not have fixed contact hours, namely ENSC 498-3, ENSC Thesis Proposal, and ENSC 499, ENSC Undergraduate Thesis, the K-factor is used to convert the credit hours into AUs. The K-factor is calculated as per CEAB Criterion 2.2.1 and is found to be 14.169 for the General program and 14.12667 for the Honors program; see Table 2C.3A for the respective programs. For simplicity, we use a pessimistic K factor of 13, which is just the number of weeks in a semester.
Curriculum content is analyzed into CEAB categories in the tables presented in the following sections. Two sets of tables are provided, one set for the General program, and one for the Honors program.
Because the Biomedical Engineering Option (an Honors only program) contains four concentrations, separate Tables, 2C.4 and 2C.5, are provided for the different concentrations.
No credit is given for Prior Studies, Advanced Standing, and Exchange Studies. These situations are approved on a case by case basis by the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee as long as various CEAB criteria are satisfied.

COMPULSORY AND ELECTIVE COURSE INFORMATION



2D.1 COMPULSORY AND ELECTIVE COURSES
Compulsory and elective course information sheets for the Biomedical, Computer, Electronics, Physics and Systems Engineering options are included in this section. However, SFU Engineering Science offers three other types of courses such as Directed Studies, Special Topics, and Special Project Laboratory. As these course vary, including course information sheets is not possible, but the titles are listed below:
Special Topics in Engineering Science – ENSC 263-3, ENSC 264-4, ENSC 363-3, ENSC 364-4, ENSC 460-4, ENSC 462-4. Special Topics in Engineering Science are studies in areas not included within the undergraduate course offerings of the Engineering Science Program.
Directed Studies – ENSC 400-4, ENSC 401-4, ENSC 402-4. Directed Studies in Engineering Science is directed reading and research in a topic chosen in consultation with a supervisor. Admission requires agreement by a proposed faculty supervisor and submission of a proposal to the School at least one month prior to the start of the semester in which the course will be taken.
Special Project Laboratory – ENSC 491-1, ENSC 491-2, ENSC 493-3, ENSC 494-4. Special Project laboratory is a course intended for students wishing to pursue laboratory research on a specific topic outside the standard course offerings. Each student must be sponsored by a faculty member who will oversee the project.
With permission of the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee chair, students may replace one of the engineering science electives by either a direct studies or a special project laboratory course.

INSTRUCTIONAL HOURS PER WEEK: 3 hours lecture/2 hours tutorial/2 hours lab
COMPUTER EXPERIENCE: Students use Pspice and Hspice to design, simulate and analyze circuits. Students generate reports for each of the three course labs.
LABORATORY EXPERIENCE: In the first course lab, students simulate, design, implement and optimize a multi-stage amplifier configuration for high gain bandwidth product given power supply, input and output resistance, minimum midband gain and output DC level constraints. In the second course lab, students characterize the frequency response of a multi-pole (three poles) commercial opamp IC. Using gain and phase margin theory for high frequency amplifiers, students are required to design a compensated opamp and make it marginally stable for a given set of parameters and constraints. In the third course lab, students are required to design a curve tracer to characterize transistors using off-the-shelf discrete components. Here, students must design and implement digital oscillators, ramp and step generators and current sources and sinks to complete the project successfully.
