About Materials Engineering

About Materials Engineering

Materials Engineering (Co-op)

Materials Engineering (Co-op)

The Materials Engineering degree is a cooperative program leading to a B.Eng. and includes formal industrial work periods. It is built on a strong background of mathematics, basic sciences, computer skills and applications, and specific engineering and design courses to provide up-to-date training in materials engineering. Students take core courses covering processing, fabrication, applications, and performance of materials.

The program is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) and is designed to offer students exceptional training for employment in the field.

The core courses are supplemented by complementary courses, which provide a diverse selection of specialties for the graduating engineer. The course structure is reinforced with laboratory exercises. Graduates find employment in a wide range of industries, including the resource and manufacturing sectors. Students in the Co-op program benefit from practical learning experience gained from work-term employment in meaningful engineering jobs, as well as non-tangible learning experiences arising from the responsibilities required to obtain and successfully complete the work terms.

Regarding the Co-op program fees, an amount of $211.60 will be billed during ten consecutive terms for a total amount of $2,116 before graduation. These fees cover expenses directly related to the operation of the Co-op program. Students must register for each of their industrial training courses within the university registration period for returning students or late fees will apply. Before registering for any work term course, students must contact the Materials Co-op Liaison Officer for approval.

Student Advising

Student Advising

Students entering this program must plan their schedule of studies in consultation with one of the departmental advisers. Appointments may be obtained by contacting the Administrative and Student Affairs Coordinator.

About Mining Engineering

About Mining Engineering

Mining Engineering (Co-op)

Mining Engineering (Co-op)

McGill is proud to be the host of the oldest mining engineering program in Canada, which started in 1870. The program is known for the excellence of its courses as well as the training it provides in mining technology, mineral economics, and mine design. Excellent career opportunities are available in Canada and around the world. There have been rapid technical developments in recent years, presenting a challenge to the creative student with a strong interest in engineering and a taste for innovative solutions.

The Department offers a co-operative program leading to an accredited B.Eng. degree in Mining Engineering. It includes three paid industrial work terms. In addition to its B.Eng. Co-op in Mining Engineering, the Mining Engineering program offers a B.Eng. Major in Mining Engineering. However, students are admitted only into the B.Eng. Co-op in Mining Engineering. This non-co-op program will enable those students who have completed the academic course requirements, but not the three co-op work term requirements, to graduate by switching to the new program. Both programs are offered in one of two streams: English Stream for non-CEGEP students and Bilingual Stream (six courses in French) for CEGEP students, in collaboration with the mining engineering program at École Polytechnique in Montreal. Students in the Bilingual Stream are required to take six mining courses, designated by subject code MPMC, at École Polytechnique in the latter part of the program.

Students must register for each work term:

and pay associated fees by the Course Change (add/drop) registration deadline. Before registering for any work term course, students must contact the Mining Co-op Liaison Officer for approval.

Student Advising

Student Advising

Each student in the mining engineering program will be assigned an academic adviser by the start of his/her academic term at McGill; every student in Mining will have one academic advisor for the duration of his/her undergraduate degree. Academic advising is mandatory for each undergraduate student of the mining engineering program and as such, each student will meet with his/her academic advisor at least once per academic year to discuss his/her progress through the curriculum and his/her path towards graduation.

For more information, please refer to the Academic Advising section of our website.
