Printable Version Printable Version

Many engineering students seek to enhance their degree with material from other disciplines and programs. There are several officially recognized alternatives available to engineering students:

  • Options within the Faculty of Engineering, open to Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) and Bachelor of Software Engineering (BSE) students only, are described in the Options of this section of the Calendar. 
  • Interdisciplinary options are described within the Faculty section of the Calendar of the Faculty offering the option. As well there is the Option in Society, Technology and Values offered by the Centre for Society, Technology and Values and housed within Engineering and available to students from all faculties.
  • Minors are offered by other faculties and described in that Faculty section of the Calendar. As an Honours student, all engineering students, Bachelor of Architectural Studies (BAS), BASc, and BSE, can pursue minors however a significant number of extra courses may be required.
  • Information regarding joint honours alternatives between Engineering and other faculties is described in the Joint Honours section of the Calendar.

It should be noted that for all of these alternatives Engineering students must meet the criteria for their degree (BAS, BASc, or BSE) as well as the requirement of the option, minor, or joint. This usually requires courses in addition to your degree.
