Laurentian University will begin offering 10 new French language and bilingual programs in Engineering and Management beginning in September 2016. The Bharti School of Engineering will launch three bilingual Bachelor’s degree programs in Chemical, Mechanical and Mining Engineering with at least 50 per cent of courses to be offered in French. In addition, the Faculty of Management will initiate a Bachelor of Business Administration program entirely in French.
More than 80 Francophone students are already enrolled in the Bharti School of Engineering and at least as many are registered in the Faculty of Management.
“These 10 programs in Engineering and Management will help us meet the expectations of future Francophone students from Canada and abroad in these high demand academic disciplines,” said associate vice-president, academic and Francophone affairs, Denis Hurtubise.
Laurentian University’s Bharti School of Engineering serves 695 students in undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
