Project Registration (FAQ)

You must register both in Carleton Central for SYSC 4907/4917/4927/4937, and on this website for working on a project offered by a supervisor from the Systems Department (i.e., the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering).

In addtion, you need to register on this website and sign up for a project before an override is granted to you to register on Carleton Central, ensuring that you have a project supervisor and all prerequisites are met. 

To register on this website, click on the 'Student Login' button and then choose CREATE STUDENT ACCOUNT.

Before you start to register the fourth-year project, please make sure that the following prerequisites are satisfied.

- The Fourth-Year Engineering Status and ECOR4905 (may be taken concurrently), as well as completion of other course prerequisites particular to a project and set out by the project supervisor. Engineering year status is not the same as University Year Standing (See § 4.7). The full definition is found under the Academic Regulations and Requirements for the Bachelor of Engineering Degree.

If students do not meet the above prerequisites, they must obtain a wavier from the Undergraduate Academic Support Office of the Faculty of Engineering and Design, 2090 Minto Case Building.

All Biomedical students are required to register in the fall and winter terms under SYSC-4917 in Carleton Central regardless of whether their supervisor is from Systems or Electronics Departments. However, you don't need to register on this website if you are working on a project offered by the Electronics Department. 

All other (Systems or Electronics) students who are under the supervision of a Systems faculty member must register in the fall and winter terms of SYSC-4907/27/37 in Carleton Central, and who are under the supervision of an Electronics faculty member must register in ELEC-4907 in Carleton Central. Improper registration may lead to delays in graduation. If you register in ELEC-4907 meaning that you are working on a project offered by the Department of Electronics, you don't need to register on this website.

The Department of Systems and Computer Engineering does not offer the project during the summer. All projects must be completed in the fall/winter timeframe.

Note: Registration in the project precludes registration in any co-op work term. In other words, you cannot do your 4th-year project while you are on a co-op work term.
