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.
- total minimum required technical elective credit count for ME1 and ME2 sub-plan (option) is 27
- total minimum required technical elective credit count for ME3 option is 23.5
- students taking APSC 480 DO NOT enrol in MECH 464. It will also be necessary to drop MECH 460 (and MECH 462 if an ME3 option student)
students in third year typically choose only one course in addition to their sub-plan core courses and it is recommended this course be taken in the Winter term. List A, 3 credit complementary study courses from the lists in the current academic calendar are usually chosen, and note that it is normal that finding a comp study course to fit your schedule is difficult and most students look at ECON courses or other courses offered in the evenings
Academic Advising contains glitches ... if you receive a message indicating you have not met the AU count for example APSC 100, MECH 215, MECH 391 (this course was not a requirement for our current students), or technical elective courses that are not recognized but are in the calendar. Also the change in course labelling in courses such as PHYS to ENPH, STAT to MTHE 367 or MATH to MTHE etc.. The main thing to note is that if you have a number or letter grade beside the course on your transcript in most cases you can ignore these warnings in Academic Advising on Solus.
