A BEng degree at McGill is well earned, respected worldwide, and can be completed in a relatively short time. This fully accredited Engineering program is recognized by professional engineering bodies. Completion of the BEng may take only 3 years of full-time study for students with an appropriate background. Students who need to make up for some basic science courses may take another semester (4 months). Many students take advantage of minor specialty programs, which could add one more semester.
