Graduate Courses

WINTER COURSE ENROLMENT BEGINS OCTOBER 05, 2017

The complete list of ALL ELITE (APS) graduate courses is here

Students who wish to enrol in 500-level courses are encouraged to do so as early as possible as seats are limited.

Fall 2017 1000-level graduate courses begin the week of September 11 unless otherwise indicated. 500-level courses, and 1000-level courses associated with a 400-level course, begins the week of September 4.

COURSE ADD/DROP DEADLINES:  2017 MIE course ADD and DROP dates are listed here.  For APS Summer courses, please follow deadline dates per ELITE's schedule as noted on the 'Admin. Info' section of each course.

For All Reading Course (MIE 2002H, 2003H, 2004, 2005H) and M.Eng. Project (MIE 8888Y):

     ► ADD and DROP dates are 3 days before the posted SGS deadline

     ►All students must submit a Course ADD/DROP form to the graduate office (signed by student & supervisor) as follows: 

Reading Course (2 forms to submit): (MEng students cannot add a Reading Course without a MEng Project)

COURSE OFFERINGS LEGEND Courses are designated to be taught Annually, Biennially (every other year), or Occasionally. However, instructor availability will sometimes affect when a course is next offered.

Courses designated Research are mainly intended for research stream graduate students, to prepare them with a theoretical background. Therefore, these courses tend to be technical and thus are unlikely to be "introductory" or "overview" courses.

The course will focus on the tribology of interacting solid surfaces in the dry or lightly lubricated state. Topics will include: surface microtopography, friction, wear, erosion, dry and marginally-lubricated contacts. Attention will also be paid to surface forces and issues related to tribology of micro-systems.
