Minor Programs

Civil Engineering students can choose to either broaden their background or attain in-depth coverage of a particular subject by enrolling in a Minor Program. Minors are coherent sequences of courses that may be taken in addition to the courses required for the BEng degree.

Minor programs normally consist of 18 to 24 credits, allowing up to 12 credits of overlap with a degree program. The real credit cost to the students is typically 9 to 15 credits, representing one semester beyond the BEng degree program. All courses in a Minor program must be passed with a grade of C or better.

In particular, Civil Engineering students are most inclined to enrol in the following Minor programs:

  • Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) - Minor Arts (24 Credits)
  • Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) - Minor Computer Science (24 Credits)
  • Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) - Minor Construction Engineering and Management (24 Credits)
  • Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) - Minor Economics (18 Credits)
  • Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) - Minor Environmental Engineering (21 Credits)
  • Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com.) - Minor Management (For Non-Management Students) (18 Credits)
  • Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) - Minor Materials Engineering (24 Credits)
  • Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) - Minor Mathematics (24 Credits)
  • Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) - Minor Technological Entrepreneurship (18 Credits)
  • Bachelor of Music (B.Mus.) - Minor Musical Applications of Technology (18 Credits)
  • Bachelor of Music (B.Mus.) - Minor Musical Science and Technology (18 Credits)

The full range of Minor Programs and details offered to engineering students about course requirements can be found in the Faculty of Engineering section of the 2016 - 2017 McGill's eCalendar. Students must consult with their academic advisor before registering in a Minor program.
