Description: A Co-op Bachelor of Engineering program in mining engineering is offered by the Department of Mining and Materials Engineering. McGill, which has the oldest mining engineering program in Canada, has always been noted for the excellence of its courses and for the training it provides in mining technology, mineral economics and mining practice. Graduates in Mining Engineering are in demand not only in Canada but throughout the world.

Technical developments have been rapid in recent years. These offer a challenge to the imaginative student with a strong engineering interest. The Department offers a cooperative program leading to the BEng degree in Mining Engineering. The Co-op program is offered in collaboration with the Department of Mineral Engineering at École Polytechnique in Montreal, and includes formal industrial work periods. Students registered at McGill are required to take a series of technical mining courses from École Polytechnique in the latter part of the program.
