Minimum Total Credits: 43.25


Note: Students should be aware that poor academics, transfers or a change in option choice may result in their program requirements taking more than the typical 4 years because of course recovery, new course requirements, availability and conflicts. The department cannot possibly guarantee that courses will not conflict when a student changes options or transfers especially after their 2nd year.

* Capstone Design Course

All students must take a final year capstone design course in their program. For the ME1 and ME2 option students this course would normally be MECH 460  (4 credits, Fall) coupled with MECH 464  (1.5 credits, Fall). ME3 students will normally take MECH 460  (4 credits, Fall) and MECH 464  (1.5 credits, Fall) and MECH 462  (3.5 credits in Winter).

However, students in the ME1 and ME2 options may choose to take APSC 480 , Multi-disciplinary Industry Engineering Design Project (9 credits FW) as a substitute for MECH 460  and MECH 464 , and if the case will receive 3.5 credits of List 1 technical electives that will count towards their required minimum option technical elective credit count.

ME3 students may choose to take APSC 480  (9 credits, FW) as a substitute for MECH 460 , MECH 464 , and MECH 462  

Note that APSC 480  has a prerequisite of APSC 381  and this is taken in the winter term of third year.

Important Note: All students, regardless of their option, who want to take APSC 480  must make sure they DROP MECH 460 , MECH 464 , (and MECH 462  if ME3) from their preloaded courses on SOLUS, and ADD APSC 480 ,AND, all students are limited to taking only ONE final year capstone project course, MECH 460  or APSC 480 .
