Registration & Advanced Credit

Registration & Advanced Credit


Students in MECH 2 must register for their courses by selecting one of four standard timetables (STT). Students in MECH 2 do not need to register for any other courses.

Taking Math Prior to MECH 2

When you register for MECH 2, you select a Standard Timetable (STT) that contains all of your courses, including MATH 253 and MATH 255. If you already have credit for one or more of these courses, you may drop them after registering for your STT, but you will still be responsible for the material within MECH 2 (see below).

For MATH 253 and/or MATH 255, if you already have credit and you chose to drop the course(s), you will still be responsible for this material in MECH 221 and MECH 222 (in labs, computer labs, problem sets, and exams). You will be examined on the math content and it will count towards your course grade (the corresponding MATH and MECH course grades are identical). The only difference will be that the MATH course will not show up on your transcript so you will earn fewer credits on the year, which will in turn reduce your tuition by the corresponding amount of credits. There are some courses that are considered equivalent to MATH 253 and MATH 255; for more information, please speak with Engineering Student Services or the Mechanical Engineering Student Services Office.

Taking Technical Communication Prior to MECH 2

APSC 201 is no longer part of the Mechanical Engineering curriculum, so new students entering our program are expected to complete MECH 226 or 227 to satisfy their degree requirements. APSC 201 is not accepted as an equivalent technical communication course. The only exception that will be made will be for students who completed APSC 201 prior to the curriculum change in 2014. Students who completed APSC 201 in 2014 or earlier will be permitted to use it to satisfy their technical communication requirement.
