Co-op Course Restriction and Appeal
Students seeking co-op should follow the Co-op office guidelines and advice prior to registration. Under a normal situation, the students register to the applicable MSE co-op course in goSFU.
As a general rule, MSE students should not take any other course while on Co-op term. A special permission may be granted on a case-by-case basis upon submission of request (MSE Co-op Appeal Form) through Coursys.. In such cases, seek endorsement from the co-op supervisor and the instructor of the course and attach the document with your appeal. You can not take Capstone (MSE 410 or MSE 411) while on a Co-op term.
To enroll in Capstone you are required to have completed two Co-op terms. A special permission may be granted on a case-by-case basis upon submission of a request to take Capstone having only completed one Co-op term (MSE Appeal Form) through Coursys. The typical criteria for a successful exemption are:
· Must have completed one industrial Co-op term (MSE 293). A special Co-op term (MSE 294) will not be accepted.
· The student must have been actively seeking a second Co-op term.
· The student could not take a second Co-op term due to extenuating circumstances.
· Additional flexibility may be offered to students on the TechE program.
The final decision will be at the discretion of the UCC Chair.
There are cases when a student is unable to manage their own registration in SIMS. Therefore, the student must seek assistance or permission from the School by completing the online MSE Co-op Appeal Form through Coursys.
