Mining Engineering: Electives

Elective Requirements

Students in all three options (N1, N2, N3) must take a minimum of 12 credits of Elective courses from the approved Elective list.

Of these 12 credits, at least 6 credits must be from the relevant Mining Electives List A (-N1, -N2, or –N3). The remaining credits can be from Mining Electives List B, or also from the relevant Mining Electives List A (-N1, -N2, or –N3).

Elective List

  • Some of the courses listed in this table also appear on Complimentary Studies List "A". Please note that a course can only count as either an Elective or a Complementary Studies List A (not as both).
  • Please note that it is the student's responsibility to check SOLUS to determine if a courses is being offered during a particular year and if it is, in which term it is being held. Course availability and the term in which it is held can change on a yearly basis.
