Thirty units (5.0 full-course equivalents), of which 12 units (2.0 full-course equivalents) may be taken from outside of the Department, and no more than 12 units (2.0 full-course equivalents) can be senior undergraduate courses (500-level).

Master of Engineering (thesis-based)

a) At least 15 units (2.5 full-course equivalents), of which 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) may be taken from outside the Department, and no more than 3 units (0.5 full-course equivalent) can be a senior undergraduate course (500-level).

b) In addition to the 15 units (2.5 full-course equivalents), students must present at the annual Mechanical Engineering Graduate Student Conference in the Winter Term to receive credit for Mechanical Engineering 613 Research Seminar.

Master of Science

a) At least 15 units (2.5 full-course equivalents), of which 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) may be taken from outside the Department, and no more than 3 units (0.5 full-course equivalent) can be a senior undergraduate course (500-level).

b) One course to be selected from Mechanical Engineering 631 or 633.

c) In addition to the 15 units (2.5 full-course equivalents), students must present at the annual Mechanical Engineering Graduate Student Conference in the Winter Term to receive credit for Mechanical Engineering 613 Research Seminar.

Doctor of Philosophy

a) For students entering the PhD program with an MSc or equivalent, at least 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) beyond the Master's degree are required and must be higher than senior undergraduate courses (500-level).

b) For students without an MSc or equivalent, at least 21 units (3.5 full-course equivalents) at the graduate level are required. Of these courses, 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) may be taken from outside the Department, no more than 3 units (0.5 full-course equivalent) can be a senior undergraduate course (500-level), and three units (0.5 full-course equivalent) must be selected from Mechanical Engineering 631 or 633.

c) In addition to the courses listed in (a) or (b), students must present at the annual Mechanical Engineering Graduate Student Conference before their candidacy exam to receive credit for Mechanical Engineering/Manufacturing Engineering 713 Research Seminar.

d) Following the candidacy exam, students must make one additional presentation at the Mechanical Engineering Graduate Student Conference in the Winter Term as partial fulfillment of the degree requirement.

Note: All courses taken outside the department must be approved by the student's supervisor and the graduate program director.

For all degrees, graduation requires successful completion of all required courses with a minimum grade of "B".
