Course numbers within the 500 series are considered to be undergraduate courses but are intended to form a transition from the undergraduate to the graduate program in certain subject areas. They serve two major functions:
- To provide technical electives for the undergraduate for specialization in a particular area.
- To provide background information for the graduate student when such is lacking.
For the MASc and MEng degree, as well as PhD directly admitted from BASc, please ensure that you follow your degree requirements when choosing courses from this series.
600 and 700 Courses
Chemical Engineering's 600- and 700-series courses are offered as announced by the Department. The schedule is subject to change and remains unconfirmed until it is posted in Schedule of Classes for Graduate Students. Normally, each of these courses includes three hours of lectures per week for one term.
Reading Course Policy
- Reading courses must be approved and mounted at least two weeks before the beginning of the term.
- Reading course syllabi must be approved by the Associate Chair of Graduate Studies. Instructors may contact the Graduate Coordinator for a syllabus template.
- To be eligible to take a reading course, students must have must have taken at least one graduate course towards their degree and have a minimum grade of 80% in the degree they are pursuing.
- The reading course instructor must be able to provide a paper trail for all final grades given in a reading course.
- No more than five students may be enrolled in each reading course.
