Who is my Advisor, When do I see an Advisor? and Why?
Dr. Brent Petersen, EE Undergraduate Advisor (D40C) petersen @unb.ca 447-3328 Prof. Mary Kaye, CMPE Undergraduate Advisor (GD113) email@example.com 452-6149 Dr. Brad Nickerson, SWE Program Coordinator (ITD420) firstname.lastname@example.org 451-6970
The ECE office staff (D36) can answer general administrative questions; however, you should request an appointment with an Advisor to address academic issues. It is important for students to follow the course matrix, recognizing pre-requisites, and minimum grade requirements. Registration for upcoming Fall/Winter academic terms takes place in the spring and students are encouraged to seek approval from advisors for their course selection to ensure program requirements are being met.
Note: The EE program requires a minimum of 160 credit hours. Even though you may have completed all of the program requirements for graduation, you still may find yourself short credit hours. Please see an academic advisor.

Students are encouraged to seek out courses of interest and value to them. The final choice of electives is subject to the approval of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Is a 'C' required in every course?
A minimum grade of C is required for all courses used for credit towards an engineering degree (including HSS and CSE's).
Can I take an on-line course?
Students who are unable to timetable a course may be eligible with departmental approval to enroll in an on-line version (OALP courses). An application form can be found at: http://extend.unb.ca/oalp/index.php

What if I am ill or have to miss time? Or miss an exam?
It is important to inform your course Professor/Lab TA if you are going to be away. Some classes have mandatory attendance. In the case of unexpected emergencies, you can submit acceptable documentation to the Registrar upon your return; often medical documentation is sufficient. Please note: The Registrar states that travel plans are not sufficient reason to defer an examination".
The ECE Department has a Policy on Deferred Examinations as follows:
"University regulations on deferred exams are described in the UNB Calendar under Section B-V.C. Courses offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering are scheduled to be written on the fourth day of classes in the following term. There are no exceptions."
UNB provides an examination service to accommodate students with disabilities. More info can be found at http://www.unbf.ca/studentaccessibility/.
