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.

When you register for MECH 2, you select a Standard Timetable (STT) that contains all of your courses, including MATH 254 and MATH 258.

Taking Math Prior to MECH 2

Effective 2019W: MATH courses taken prior to Mech 2 will no longer be accepted for credit.

MATH 253 and MATH 255 (or equivalent) are no longer accepted to fulfill the Math requirements of the Mechanical Engineering program. All Mech 2 students will be expected to complete MATH 254 and MATH 258.

As a leniency during this transition, we will still accept prior credit for MATH 253 or MATH 255 (or equivalent) from students who completed these course(s) before April 2019, however, students are still fully responsible for this material in MECH 221 and MECH 222 (in labs, computer labs, problem sets, and exams). Students 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.

Any credit for MATH 253 or MATH 255 (or equivalent) obtained after April 2019 will no longer be accepted for credit and students will need to register and pay tuition for MATH 254 and MATH 258 in their Mech 2 year

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.
