Minor in Engineering Science Go to top of document
The Minor in Engineering Science is open to all registered undergraduate Brock students who have completed at least five credits in post-secondary education with a 70 percent average or higher. Students who transfer to Brock from another institution with at least five equivalent credits accepted by a departmental review will also be considered. Students wishing to minor in Engineering Science are required to complete a change of major request (see Office of the Registrar). The Minor in Engineering Science is a limited enrolment program. ENGS courses beyond the 100 level will be restricted to students accepted into the Minor. Students wishing to obtain the minor must complete FMSC 1P00 if they do not otherwise have any previous MATH credit. To complete a Minor in Engineering Science students must complete four full credits. Among the credits chosen, at least two credits must be from ENGS courses and at least two credits of the total must be from courses offered from the Faculty of Mathematics and Science. Students must satisfy the following requirements with a minimum 70 percent average:
- ENGS 1P01
- At least one and one-half credits from ENGS 2P01, 2P02, 3P12, 3P20, 3P21, 3P22, 3P41, 3P42, 3P44
- At least one and one-half credits from APCO 1P00, 1P93, 2P11, BIOL 2Q04, 4P25, BTEC 2P09, CHEM 2P12, 2P42, 2P63, ENGS 3P12, 3P21, 3P22, GEOG 2P07, ERSC 2P61, 3P95, FMSC 1P00, MATH 1P05, 1P06, 1P20, 1P70, 1P98, 1F92, PHYS 1P21, 1P22, 2P02, 2P30.
- Remaining credits can be from ENSU 2P01, 2P02, ENTR 2P51, IASC 2P03, KINE 4P01.
