Complementary Courses (16 credits)

A minimum of 16 credits (500, 600, or 700 level) from the Faculty of Engineering may be selected by the student, based on interest and the choice of area of concentration. Courses at the graduate level from other faculties may also be taken, with prior approval from the student's project supervisor and the Graduate Program Director. A maximum of 3 credits of FACC courses at the 500, 600, or 700 level may be credited toward the degree.
