Minors and Certificates

Choosing an engineering minor or certificate is a great way to graduate with an extra set of credentials, or just explore an area of interest while earning your BASc. You can also take a minor through the Faculty of Arts & Science, where you’ll find thousands of course options — from French to Cinema Studies.

Engineering Minors

While you’re earning your BASc, you can attain specialization in one of the following areas:

To obtain an engineering minor, you need to complete a specific number of credits from a set of designated courses. For example, if you’re interested in the Engineering Business minor, you would take courses in engineering economics, accounting and finance, competitive strategy and people management, plus two additional courses. When you graduate, your minor will appear on your transcripts.
