Year 4 Technical Electives

Each student registered in the 4th year of Mechanical and Materials Engineering Program is required to take BUS2299, ES4498G, MME4499, 0.5 credit non-technical elective and 5 (2.5 credits) technical elective courses. The technical elective courses being offered by MME for the next academic year are given in the tables below. Students may also elect to substitute technical electives from other engineering disciplines or from the Faculty of Science, provided they have the required prerequisites, and provided that at least half of their technical electives are chosen from the MME list. A maximum of 2 courses may be taken from the Faculty of Science and used towards the MME degree. All courses outside the MME list must be approved by the Associate Chair Undergraduate of MME. Students with a minimum grade average (YWA) of 80 may also apply to the School of Graduate Studies to take (up to) two graduate courses offered by MME Dept in lieu of (up to) two technical electives (subject to approval by the 4th year counselor).
