  7. At least two of the four half credit Complementary Studies Electives to be taken between second and fourth year must he Humanities/Social Sciences courses (see the Complementary Studies section at the beginning of this chapter). An equivalent full credit course is also acceptable. Students are responsible for ensuring that each elective taken is approved. Please consult the electives list available on the Faculty of Engineering's Registrar's Office website.
