Procedures for the Fall 2020 semester
The following procedures will be applied in order to ensure that the Fall 2020 session runs as smoothly as possible:
- The majority of courses during the Fall session will be delivered remotely. The balance will be delivered in person. This information was conveyed at an earlier date.
- Students who are enrolled in courses to be delivered remotely must have access to a computer, a microphone and a camera, along with Internet access, preferably with a connection speed of 10Mb/s or higher.
- At the discretion of ÉTS, courses to be delivered remotely may be recorded. As required, recordings of courses may be made available to students, primarily via the ÉTS portal.
- Grading for courses will be applied in accordance with normal grading procedures at ÉTS.
- For courses to be delivered remotely, all exams (midterms, finals) will be held remotely. They will be invigilated using the computer’s camera and microphone, and may be recorded. This is necessary in order to comply with the requirements of the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) in ensuring the validity of evaluations.
- It is obvious that, given the current context, ÉTS must prepare for the possibility of a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, which may lead to a retightening of government directives and recommendations after the beginning of the Fall 2020 session. Please rest assured that ÉTS will comply with all applicable rules aimed at maintaining public health, which may go as far as prohibiting access to the ÉTS campus and delivering all teaching and evaluation activities online for the balance of the Fall 2020 semester.
- ÉTS or your Department may implement additional requirements, depending on the specific characteristics of your program.
If you are not in agreement with the procedures described above, you should cancel your registration for any courses before September 13 in order to qualify for reimbursement.
For new students enrolled in Bachelor programs only, you should cancel your registration for any courses before September 25 in order to qualify for reimbursement.
By maintaining your registration, you signify that you accept the specific procedures for the Fall 2020 semester.
