Technical and Non-Technical Courses

This is a searchable and sortable list of courses that have been assessed as technical or non-technical. ChemE MEng students can refer to this list to help them choose which courses to take to complete their MEng requirements.

All graduate-level CHE courses are technical (unless assessed as “Not for credit**” in the technical/non-technical course list below). However, MEng students should not take some CHE courses (e.g., CHE1102 and CHE3001). See the CHE courses in the list below for details.

This is not a complete list. Students can take courses that are not included in this list and request an assessment to determine if they are technical or non-technical.

Courses in the list:

  • may not be offered each year
  • may not to be open for enrolment at certain times
  • may require permission to enrol
  • may no longer be offered

For questions about a course’s availability or timetable, or if you have problems enrolling, contact the department that offers the course.

List of Courses Assessed as Technical or Non-Technical

* Depends on topic indicates that the course content changes year-to-year. If you would like to know if this year’s course is technical or non-technical, submit a request for assessment.

** Not for credit indicates that if the course is taken, it will not count towards your MEng requirements and it is neither technical or non-technical.
