Graduate Courses

MME Graduate Courses for the 2022-2023 Academic Session

Students choose courses during September, January or May before each semester begins. For example, if your admission is September - then you begin choosing and registering for classes in late August/early September.

Graduate students in our dept. cannot use the cart in SOLUS to register in classes. 4th year undergrad courses are limited because undergrad students often receive FIRST priority for registration.

Please note: Course descriptions for all Mechanical and Materials Engineering graduate courses can be found on the School of Graduate Studies Academic Calendar.

**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 or MEng Coordinator's permission to take the course.

Royal Military College (RMC) Courses

SPECIAL RMC COURSE REGISTRATION FORM NEEDED - Please contact the Grad Assistant in the department.

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 registration form. RMC courses will appear on the transcript as a transfer credit only "TR" (3.0 units). The course title will not be listed. This will not show on SOLUS until AFTER the course is successfully completed.
