Engineering students must follow the approved course sequence for their program to ensure graduation after four years (8 terms) of study. Registering for the sections for your program means no time conflicts or problems with your courses.
All students in engineering programs must complete all 200-level courses in their programs prior to commencing courses at the 400-level.
Students must choose technical electives from the approved list in the Undergraduate Calendar. Topics offered in these courses change over time to ensure your program curriculum remains relevant. Some technical electives may not be offered in a given academic year.
Capstone Design Project courses (INDU, MECH, and AERO 490) extends over two academic terms.
Effective May 2017, MECH 490 has been moved to the Mechanical Engineering Core and the Options are being removed from the program. Instead, students must now complete their required number of technical elective credits from the following six areas:
Please note: If you select to take one of the Options from the 2016-2017 Calendar, you will register in MECH 490 (not MECH 490A, B, or C) but you will have to indicate your Option when you begin the Capstone Project selection process and submit your Letter of Intent for MECH 490.
You would like to reduce your course load (full-time status implies 12cr per term)
You need to go part-time
You did not secure a work-term (Co-op)
Please note that going off sequence may cause you to run into schedule conflicts in the future.
You can review the current course schedules and use our class search to help you determine if a course is offered in Summer 1 or 2 (/1), Fall (/2) or Winter (/4). Also, please pay attention to course pre-requisites which are specified in the Undergraduate Calendar. For your convenience, our updated sequences also include a chart on the second page displaying pre-requisites, co-requisites and course offerings for your program.
