Mechanical and Materials Engineering: Technical Electives


Students are required to complete technical electives dependent on their option, as listed below:

ME1 Option

A minimum of 17.0 credits from any combination of courses on Lists 1, 2 or 3

A minimum of 3.5 additional credits from any combination of courses on Lists 1, 2, 3 or 4

A minimum of 3.0 additional credits from ANY Queen’s undergraduate course

For a minimum total requirement of technical electives of 23.5 credits

ME2 Option

A minimum of 10.0 credits from courses on List 2

A minimum of 7.0 additional credits from any combination of courses on Lists 1, 2 or 3

A minimum of 3.5 additional credits from any combination of courses on Lists 1, 2, 3 or 4

A minimum of 3.0 additional credits from ANY Queen’s undergraduate course

For a minimum total requirement of technical electives of 23.5 credits

ME3 Option

A minimum of 10.0 credits from courses on List 3

A minimum of 3.5 additional credits from any combination of courses on Lists 1, 2 or 3

A minimum of 3.5 additional credits from any combination of courses on Lists 1, 2, 3 or 4

A minimum of 3.0 additional credits from ANY Queen’s undergraduate course

For a minimum total requirement of technical electives of 20.0 credits

(Note that ME3 students are required to take MECH 462 which is optional for ME1 and ME2 students.  Students take the same total load in all three options.)

 

For all courses, students must meet the prerequisite requirements and no exclusion courses are allowed.  Any exception to the requirements above must be approved by the Undergraduate Chair.  It is the sole responsibility of the student to ensure that elective weights are sufficient to meet the total technical elective requirement.

All course availabilities and the term in which a course is held can change from one academic year to the next. This can occur due to curriculum changes, instructor availability or a change in departmental resources. Please refer to the individual course descriptions in the current calendar for further details.

Areas of Concentration in Mechanical


Although there is no formal streaming of electives in the Mechanical Engineering Curriculum, the following groupings are provided in order to give students some guidance in areas where they may wish to concentrate their studies.

Note that project-based courses such as MECH 361 , MECH 461  and MECH 462  (except for MECH 462  as it is core to ME3) can apply to any of these concentrations.

The department reserves the right to not be able to offer all of the courses listed above on Lists 1, 2, 3 and 4, and the Areas of Concentration courses listed below, each academic year.
