Economics (Faculty of Engineering)

Can be taken as: Minor

How do societies decide what to produce, how much of each commodity to produce, who consumes what and how consumption patterns vary over time? How do individuals make decisions on their education, their work, on where they live, on how much of each good to consume, on how much to save and on how the savings are invested? What determines prices, exchange rates, interest rates and the level of inflation? How does the globalization of the Canadian economy affect various sectors of the Canadian economy? Economics students learn about these and many other issues central to the well-being of societies.

The Minor in Economics for Engineering students may be taken in addition to the courses required for the B.Eng. degree. Minor programs normally consist of 18-24 credits, allowing 9-12 credits of overlap with the degree program. The real credit cost to the student is typically 9 to 15 credits, representing one term beyond the B.Eng. degree program.
