Basic Science Electives

Engineering students are advised to wait until approved Basic Science lists are posted before you select an elective. Approved basic science electives vary term to term.

Students in Biomedical & Electrical and Biomedical & Mechanical programs do not refer to this list for ‘Science Electives’; see below.

Approved Basic Science Electives – Summer 2021
(last updated March 2, 2021 at 1:45pm)

Please refer to your Program Progression Map and/or your Advisor to confirm whether this is a requirement for your program.

Please note: No alternatives will be approved. Online offerings of these courses are acceptable for this requirement of your degree. Access to a course is not guaranteed and may depend on space availability and the satisfaction of other requirements, e.g.: course prerequisites. If you require access to one of these courses, you must contact the department offering the course using Carleton Central’s Registration Override Request.
