(Waterloo as University of Waterloo in Canada)

Hi


I have went through Waterloo's Engineering curricula and degree requirements. And it seems like there aren't any elective courses I can take. It is already full with engineering courses. Is it ture that engineering students cannot take any elective courses?

If you're referring to electives outside of engineering, then I'm pretty sure you'll have a few ones. All engineering programs in Canada require a certain set and type of "complimentary studies" (CS) options outside of engineering. They're typically not completely free electives though, and amongst your CS courses you'll take things like engineering economics, ethics in the engineering profession, technical writing. You might also to pick from a set of courses that deal with the humanities and society (aka faculty of arts courses, except language ones) and also choose a course that deals with science, technology, and society.

Unless you want to stay an extra semester or year, no. I go to another accredited engineering program in Ontario (so similar curriculum) and I got to chose my one non-engineering elective out of like 5 courses (business, economics, psych etc..).
