Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Plans

Minimum Total Credits: 43.25


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

MME students normally take APSC 200/293 in the winter term. 

Fourth Year Common Core - 2019/2020


  • Complementary Studies, List A, F or W | 6
  • Complementary Studies, List A, B, C, or D, F or W | 3
  • ME1 and ME2 Technical Electives (See Technical Elective List) F and W | 27.0
  • ME3 Technical Electives (See Technical Elective List) F and W | 23.5

Important to Note: The above list is for a typical fourth year program and may vary depending on choices in previous years. Students must have a minimum total of 9 credits of Complementary Studies electives and a minimum of 27 credits of Technical Electives in the ME1 and ME2 options, and a minimum of 23.5 credits of Technical Electives in the ME3 option, as detailed below. This count includes any electives taken in a student’s 2nd, 3rd and 4th years from the specific lists required for their option which are outlined in the Technical Elective description.

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) coupled with MECH 464  (1.5 credits, Fall), in addition to MECH 462  (3.5 credits, Winter).

However, students in the ME1 and ME2 options may choose to take APSC 480  (9 credits, Fall and Winter), Multi-disciplinary Industry Engineering Design Project 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 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 , normally taken in the winter term of third year.

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

Complementary Studies


Refer to the Complementary Studies  section of this calendar for details regarding the requirements for all Engineering plans. For the Mechanical Program, the Engineering Economics core course is APSC 221 , and the Communications core courses are APSC 293  and MECH 464 .

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 6.5 additional credits from ANY Queen’s undergraduate course

For a minimum total requirement of technical electives of 27.0 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 6.5 additional credits from ANY Queen’s undergraduate course

For a minimum total requirement of technical electives of 27.0 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 6.5 additional credits from ANY Queen’s undergraduate course

For a minimum total requirement of technical electives of 23.5 credits

(Note that ME3 students are required to take MECH 462 as core, but it is an optional List 1 technical elective for ME1 and ME2 students.  Students take the same total load in all three options.)

(As an example, 17.5 from List 1, 2 or 3; 3.0 from List 4; 6.5 from ANY Queen’s undergraduate course(s) would also satisfy the ME1 requirement.)

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.
