Mechanical Engineering - Restricted Electives - 2015/2016

1. Engineering Electives

The combination of elective credits required to graduate are 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.

2. Complementary Studies Electives

B.Eng. students must select [2.00] credits (four courses) from the Complementary Studies electives. You must select one course from each of the three sub-lists (CS-1, CS-2 and CS-3). The remaining 0.5 credit can be chosen from any of the three sub-lists. These electives are meant to broaden your knowledge of society, culture, government and the economy so that you may better understand the impact of engineering on society as large.


3. Mechanical Engineering Streams

“Streams” of specialization are optional.  Selection of the restricted elective courses available in the MECH-1 and MECH-2 lists should be based on each student's personal and professional interests.  Students who wish to strengthen their knowledge in a particular area of interest can use the chart below for reference.  It is important to note that some of the prerequisite course requirements for the specialized design electives are included in the Engineering Elective List MECH-1.  These courses must be taken to gain registration access to the design elective course.
