Undergraduate studies in Mathematics and Engineering

Degree options

We have three options in our programme for students in the class of 2012 and beyond.

M6 - Applied Mechanics: Students in this option take courses in the areas of control theory, mechanics, dynamics, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics. This option is offered jointly with the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering. (pdf)

M9 - Computing and Communications: The topics covered in courses in this option include computer science, software design, communication and information systems, and electrical engineering. This option is offered jointly with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. (pdf)

M11 - Systems and Robotics: Courses taken in this option include electrical engineering courses (electronic and communication systems) and mechanical engineering courses (dynamics and mechanics), as well as upper year courses in communication and information systems and control theory. This option is offered jointly with the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mechanical and Materials Engineering. (pdf)

For students currently in the programme in the class of 2011 or before, there are four options.

M6 - Applied Mechanics: As above.

M7 - Control and Communications: Courses taken in this option include circuit design, electrical systems, communication and information systems, and control theory. This option is offered jointly with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. (pdf)

M9 - Computing and Communications: As above.

M10 - Control and Robotics: In this option, students take courses in mechanical and electrical systems, mechanics, dynamics, robotics, and control theory. This option is offered jointly with the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mechanical and Materials Engineering. (pdf)

Programme structure

First year: As with all Engineering programmes at Queen's, students take courses in a common first year. During the first year, students choose their programme of specialization.

Second year: In their second year, Mathematics and Engineering students take a combination of courses in Mathematics/Statistics and courses in their Engineering specialization.

Third year: The third year programme, like the second year programme, is a blend of courses in Mathematics/Statistics and Engineering courses. In the third year, students will take Engineering courses from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. Depending on which option a student is in, such courses include control theory and signals and systems.

Fourth year: The pattern of taking a blend of Mathematics/Statistics and Engineering courses continues in the fourth year. However, now all of the Mathematics/Statistics courses deal with Engineering topics. These will include, depending on a students option, courses in control theory, Lagrangian mechanics, information theory, source coding and quantization, telecommunication and data networks, coding theory, and statistical signal processing.

It is these fourth year courses that really set the Mathematics and Engineering programme apart from the other Engineering programmes at Queen's, and indeed in Canada. These are truly advanced courses at a level that are simply not accessible to undergraduates with the usual Engineering background in Mathematics or Statistics.
