Common Foundation Courses for Students

This is a list of relevant courses for some common majors across some common technical requirements we see for UROPs.

Undergraduate courses are available here. It is important to note that every undergraduate —program is different, so if you studied Mechanical Engineering at another university it is very possible that you took slightly different classes, math requirements, or order of concepts than your UROP student.
