Graduate Courses

MME Graduate Courses for the 2020-2021 Academic Session

 NEW students choose courses during September, January or May just prior to the start of the semester. [Late August/early September for the Sept. start date, late December/early January for a January start and late April/early May for a May start.]

Graduate students in our dept. do not use SOLUS to choose courses. 4th year undergrad courses are limited because undergrad students often receive priority for registration.

**Note: MECH 840, 842, 843, and 844 are "topics" courses. These courses require the student to find a professor to supervise them during the semester, in addition to submitting a Study Plan which is to be agreed upon by the Professor/Supervisor, Graduate Coord., and the student prior to registration. These courses are best taken during Summer term (May-Aug.) when course choices are limited. An example would be an independent study.

Other Engineering Courses* (by Department)

*Students may be able to take graduate [typically "800" level] or undergrad courses ["400 level"]  from other departments, depending on their degree requirements. If allowed under the regulations, you will need both the Instructor's and Graduate Coordinator's permission to take the course.  

Royal Military College (RMC) Courses    

Courses available over the 2019-20 academic year. SPECIAL RMC COURSE REGISTRATION FORM NEEDED - SEE THE GRAD ASST. IN THE DEPT.

If you have been approved by your Supervisor or MEng Coord to take a course at RMC, please see the graduate advisor for the application form and more details. These courses are NOT ADDED using the Queen's Academic Change Form. They will appear on the transcript as a transfer credit only (3.0 units). The course title will NOT be listed.
