Course sequences for Mechanical Engineering (BEng)

Course sequences show you which courses you should take for your particular program and in which term you should take them. The recommended course sequences do not take into account any deficiencies or advanced standing you’ve received, since these vary from one student to another.

Program requirements

It is important to note that all 200-level courses within the program which are prerequisites for other courses must be completed with a C- or higher. A 200-level course in which a student has obtained a D+ or lower must be repeated before attempting a course for which it is a prerequisite.

Additionally, all students must have completed all 200-level courses required for their program before they can register for any 400-level course. This means that you will not be allowed to register for your 400-level courses until the final grades of all 200-level courses are released.

Extended Credit Program (ECP)
Most students entering Concordia from a secondary school outside Quebec are admitted to the ECP. This requires the completion of 30 credits in addition to the regular 90- or 120-credit degree programs.

Mature Entry Program (MEP)
Canadians and Permanent Residents who are 21 years of age or older and who lack the normal pre-university schooling may be considered for admission to the MEP, which requires successful completion of a minimum of 18 additional credits.

To fulfill the requirements of the General Education Elective or General Electives, students may choose courses from either Humanities, Social Sciences or Other Complementary Studies from the list below.

Students in the Extended Credit Program (ECP), the Mature Entry Program (MEP) or any other students who have been assigned credits in Humanities and Social Sciences must select those credits ONLY from those corresponding lists. Those credits cannot be chosen from the list of Other Complementary Studies.

As of Summer 2021, Mechanical, Industrial, and Aerospace (Option B) students who have not completed MIAE 311 in are now required to complete:

  • MIAE 311, Manufacturing Processes, as a lecture of 3 credits; and
  • MIAE 312, Engineering Design and Manufacturing Processes Lab, a standalone lab at 1 credit.

Students who have completed MECH/MIAE 311 prior to Winter 2021 at 3.75 credits, including those who received transfer credits, are not required to complete MIAE 312. Students who enroll in MIAE 311 in Summer 2021 or later must complete MIAE 312.

Please note that a new course has been introduced to the program core for both MECH and INDU programs; MIAE 380 Product Design & Development  (formerly called INDU 440).

For current Mechanical Engineering students:

  • Student who are graduating after JUNE 2023 must have taken MIAE 380 as part of their program core course requirements. This implies that they must adhere to the new updated sequence (with one less technical elective course required). We highly recommend that you re-sequence by following the instructions on our website You may consult with your academic advisor to verify your revised sequence.
  • Students who will be graduating in JUNE 2023 or before, do not have to take MIAE 380.
  • Students who will be graduating in JUNE 2023 or before and have completed their first year of the undergraduate mechanical engineering program are strongly encouraged to enroll in MIAE 380 prior to taking MECH 390. This implies that they will be following the new updated sequence, i.e. MIAE 380 will be taken as part of their program core courses and is a pre-requisite to MECH 390. This also implies that the technical elective requirements are reduced by 3 credits. Therefore, we highly recommend that you re-sequence by following the instructions on our website. You may consult with your academic advisor to verify your revised sequence.
