## 3. Substitutions

A. Students in the internship version of this Plan will substitute 3.0 units from COMP at the 300 level for requirement 1.O. (CISC 499 Advanced Undergraduate Project). In addition, the B.Cmp.(Hons.) Program requirements will be increased by 6.0 units from COMP at the 300 level, for a total of 126.0 units if the student is taking a 12-month internship, or by 9.0 units from COMP at the 300 level, for a total of 129.0 units if the student is taking a 16-month internship.

## 4. Notes

A. Those students with no programming experience should review first-year course choices based on the Section on Introductory Courses at the start of the chapter on Computing.

B. ELEC courses are offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. Special permission may be required to register. All such courses will count as 3.0 units towards degree requirements in Arts and Sciences.

C. A maximum of 6.0 units from courses offered by other Faculties and Schools may be counted toward the program and/or Plan Requirements. This includes courses in BMED, COMM, GLPH, LAW, NURS and courses in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science.

## Biomedical Computing Course List

The following list contains courses offered through other Departments. In accordance with Academic Regulation 2.5 (Access to Classes), students do not have enrolment priority in all of these courses. Access to these courses may only be made available during the Open Enrolment period, and then only if space permits.
