Honours Bachelor of Business Administration and Honours Bachelor of Science in Computing and Computer Electronics

This double degree program combines the Honours Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the School of Business & Economics and the Honours Bachelor of Science in Computing and Computer Electronics degree from the Faculty of Science. Students can maximize the benefit of their educational experience by completing these two undergraduate degrees. This program provides qualified applicants the opportunity to develop an expertise in business as well as an in-depth understanding of computer hardware, microprocessors, microelectronics, digital systems and software design. The BSc/BBA double degree program consists of a minimum of 25.5 course credits, and normally requires up to five years for completion. Completion of 5.0 required and elective course credits in each year of the BBA/BSc in Computing and Computer Electronics program is mandatory to progress.

The program guarantees admission into the Co-op Option for students who have met progression requirements for entry to Year 2. The Co-op Option is not mandatory. Students will have the option of undertaking three or four co-op work terms. Students will be required to meet progression requirements of both programs in order to receive both degrees. Special circumstances do exist for the double degree program including the allowance for 2.5 course credit repeats, instead of the traditional 2.0 course credit repeats allowed in the Honours BBA (WLU) program. Students are also expected in Year 1, to obtain 5.0 course credits by August 31 and total course repeats may not exceed a maximum of 1.5 credits. All credits taken during Year 1 will be included in the GPA requirements for progression into Year 2.
