1 COSC 222 is accepted in lieu of COSC 210 but requires other prerequisites.


2 Manufacturing Engineering students in the Aerospace option will take ENGR 310 instead of ENGR 320.

3In general, scientific geography courses, statistical courses, and studio/performance courses in fine arts, music, and theatre will not satisfy this requirement. Courses that teach language skills are not acceptable. See Complementary Studies Courses

To be chosen from a list of Manufacturing Engineering elective courses provided by the School of Engineering.


5 Students with transfer credits from other institutions (e.g. transfer programs, Go Global/CIE or Bridge programs) should consult the Manufacturing  Engineering Advising sheet and check with an Engineering Advisor prior to their 4th year registration date.

Aerospace Option

Available to Manufacturing and Mechanical students, the Aerospace Option allows students interested in aerospace engineering to have courses focused in this area.

Application to the Aerospace Option is open to students who have completed the first or second year of the Bachelor of Applied Science program and are starting year 2 or higher in the next academic year specializing in Manufacturing or Mechanical Engineering.

Applications for admission must be submitted to the Engineering Advising Office by May 31st. Enrolment in this option is limited and admission will be competitive based on GPA.

Manufacturing Engineering students in the Aerospace option will take ENGR 310 instead of ENGR 320. In addition, the following four (4) elective courses are required for the Aerospace Option under Manufacturing Engineering:

  • ENGR 449 Aircraft Structures
  • ENGR 476 Mechanics of Materials II
  • ENGR 493 Introductory Aerodynamics and Aircraft Design
  • MANF 496 Aerospace Materials and Manufacturing Process

Entry into and continuation in the Option require that the student remain in Good Standing. Upon successful completion of the option, the notation “Aerospace Option” will be added to the student’s transcript.
