Entry Requirements

  • Qualifications accepted/recognised by the university.


The undergraduate field program is a coordinated sequence of courses beginning in the sophomore year. During the first semester of that year, students who plan to enter the field of mechanical engineering take ENGRD 202 as an engineering distribution course. They also are encouraged to complete ENGRD 221 which is a field requirement that may simultaneously satisfy Common Curriculum requirements as an engineering distribution course.

During the five semesters after affiliation, completion of the Common Curriculum will typically mean earning credit for one math course, one science course, two approved electives, and five humanities or social science courses.

The upper level program includes a large number of electives which (in combination with the two approved electives) may be used to build programs with particular emphasis that feature the interests of individual students. The five field-approved electives must include two courses which form a depth concentration, a field design elective, a mathematics elective, and a technical elective.
