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:
- Arts Minor (24 credits)
- Computer Science Minor (24 credits)
- Construction Engineering and Management Minor (24 credits)
- Economics Minor (18 credits)
- Environmental Engineering Minor (21 credits)
- Minor in Environment (18 credits)
- Management Minor (15 credits)
- Materials Engineering Minor (24 credits)
- Mathematics Minor (24 credits)
- Technological Entrepreneurship Minor (18 credits)
- 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 2013-2014 McGill University Calendar. Students must consult with their academic advisor before registering in a Minor program.
