Biomedical Engineering - Restricted Electives - 2020/2021
1. Technical Electives
The combination of elective credits required to graduate is noted in the Course Calendar for your specific Cohort. All elective course offerings are subject to a minimum enrollment of 10 students. Courses may be cancelled by the university at any time if enrollment is less than 10. Semester offerings for courses may change without notice. Students should refer to the current Undergraduate Calendar to confirm that the course will be offered in the semester indicated in this program guide. Concerned that the elective prerequisites have changed mid-program? See the Engineering Elective Prerequisite - History of Changes table.
A maximum of 1.5 credits at the 1000 course level is allowed for elective requirements (this limit applies to all electives, including technical electives, complementary studies electives and free electives, where applicable).
