Co-op, Minors, Certificates and Engineering Concurrent Programs for Students

Minors available to students in Mathematics

Minor programs allow students to develop subject specialties in addition to their Major or Honours subjects. Minors in other subjects are normally added to 120 credit hour BSc or BA programs (including Science Co-op).

Students in a BSc (120 credit hour) program in Mathematics may choose to include a Minor selected from the list of approved Minors. Courses counted toward a Major or Honours subject cannot be used to fulfill the requirements of a Minor program.


In combination with a BSc in Mathematics, students may obtain one or more Certificates. A Certificate indicates that a student has achieved a certain level of proficiency in a given area or subspecialty. Courses counted toward a Major, Honours or Minor subject may also be used to fulfill the requirements of a Certificate. Students must apply to the Certificate Coordinator to be considered for a Certificate. Certificates are awarded upon graduation and are noted on the student’s academic transcript.

A complete list of Faculty of Science Certificates and requirements can be found at the beginning of the Faculty of Science section. Students may also work toward obtaining Certificates offered by other Faculties; some of these are listed in the College of Arts and Science Degree Requirements section of the calendar.

Certificates of particular interest to students enrolled in a BSc in Mathematics include:

BSc/BEng Concurrent Program

BEng/BSc (90 credit hour) concurrent degree (Mathematics)

This degree combines an engineering degree with a deeper knowledge of mathematics, and provides a strong foundation for students interested in areas such as robotics, telecommunications, systems analysis and modelling. Following is the recommended sequence of courses for students wishing to obtain a concurrent BEng and BSc (90 credit hour) degree with Minor in Mathematics. Interested students must consult with the Assistant Dean, Faculty of Science, and the Associate Dean, Faculty of Engineering prior to enrolling in a concurrent BEng/BSc degree. 

It is recommended that students also discuss their selection of courses with an undergraduate advisor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. A concurrent BEng/BSc Honours Mathematics program can be designed for interested candidates.
