The Degree of MEng in Engineering Management [Graduate]


(See Correction June 16, 2016)  

The Master of Engineering is a coursebased degree intended for the working professional and for those with foreign training interested in becoming oriented towards the North American industry. Course content is more applied than in thesis-based MSc and PhD programs and is typically delivered in intensive weekend and evening formats to better accommodate working professionals. MEng courses are not transferable to MSc and PhD programs, but can be applied towards some professional development certificates.

Program Requirements


The Master of Engineering degree requires the completion of a minimum of ★24 (eight single-term graduate courses or equivalent) all at the 800-level in the Faculty of Engineering. In addition, students must complete ENGG 800. Courses must be chosen in consultation with the Department.

There is no second language requirement other than English for the degree of MEng.

Note that MEng requirements changed significantly September 1, 2014. Those who began their programs before this date will be governed by the requirements in place at the time of their admission.
