McGill’s Mining Engineering Program is the oldest in Canada (since 1870). It celebrated its 25th year as a Co-op program in 2013. The Program has two streams – an English stream for out-of-province and international students, and a bilingual stream for CEGEP students in collaboration with École Polytechnique de Montréal. Local students from English high schools are eligible to follow the English stream.
