The Advice link was created in hopes of both informing and explaining some of the guidelines, procedures and other information related to the MECH program. The advice found here is typically from the Undergraduate Chair and the Program Assistant and is based on accumulated experience. At times the information may not always be up to date as policies and procedures change. The best point of reference for information on the Faculty policies and regulations, and specific program curriculum details is the current Engineering and Applied Science Calendar.
Important to note:
As Student Advisors, we are happy to provide you with assistance and advice; however, please note that each student is personally responsible for meeting the graduation requirements of his/her own program.
REMINDER - IMPORTANT CHANGES to the MME CURRICULUM ....
- total technical elective credit count for ME1 and ME2 option is 27 (not 28)
- total technical elective credit count for ME3 option is now 23.5 (not 24.5)
- MECH 464 is now a Fall term only course, and students taking APSC 480 DO NOT enrol in this course, they must also drop MECH 460 (and MECH 462 if an ME3 option student)
- for the class of 2014 and 2015, APSC 221 is now core in the 3rd year Fall Term resulting in students only choosing one course in the winter term (typically a List A, 3 credit complementary study course from the lists in the new academic calendar)
- Academic Advising contains glitches ... if you receive a message indicating you have not met the AU count or ??? in APSC 100, MECH 215, MECH 391 (this course was not a requirement for our current students), and with the change in course labelling from PHYS 333 to ENPH 333, and STAT 367 to ENPH 367, if you have a number or letter grade beside the course on your transcript just ignore these warnings in Academic Advising.
