Minor Programs in the Faculty of Engineering

This section includes general information concerning minors that are designed for students in the Faculty of Engineering.

Minors are coherent sequences of courses taken in addition to the courses required for the B.Eng. or B.Sc.(Arch.) degree. Minors normally consist of 18–24 credits, allowing 6–12 credits of overlap with the degree program (see individual minor program requirements for specific information regarding course overlap). The real credit cost to the student is typically 9–18 credits, representing one term beyond the B.Eng. or B.Sc.(Arch.) degree program. All courses in a minor must be passed with a grade of C or better.

Engineering students choose from a considerable variety of complementary courses under the categories of technical and complementary studies. Students should refer to their department for information concerning selection of complementary courses, and should see their departmental adviser. Departments also publish information regarding the choice of courses in this publication and in separate documents.

For enrolment in any other minors available at the University which is not listed below, please consult an adviser at MESC.

Note: Students are also permitted to register for minor concentrations offered by departments in the Faculty of Arts. To register in one of these minor concentrations, students must submit a Request for Course Authorization form to the McGill Engineering Student Centre (Student Affairs Office; Frank Dawson Adams Building, Room 22) to obtain approval from the Faculty of Engineering. The Faculty of Engineering allows up to 9 credits of overlap with the degree program for Engineering students taking Arts minor concentrations.
