The Masters of Engineering (M.Eng.) program is suited to students who wish to pursue their electrical and computer engineering education beyond the undergraduate level but do not wish to pursue a thesis based research program. The program requires students to complete 30 credits of course work with the option of completing a supervised project.
The typical completion time for the M.Eng. is 12-16 months, if pursued on a full-time basis. M.Eng. degree candidates registered as full-time students are required to spend at least one winter session at the University. Candidates can also complete the M.Eng. on a part-time basis. In either case the program must be completed within 5 years of initial registration. Course selection must also be approved by their Graduate Supervisor.
A M.Eng. candidate may write an engineering report based on an appropriate engineering project in the candidate's chosen area of specialization, in lieu of 6 credits of course work. The subject of the report should be agreed upon between the candidate and the Graduate Supervisor.
The M.Eng. program is administered by the Faculty of Applied Science, rather than the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Financial aid is generally not available to M.Eng. students and tuition fees are higher than for the M.A.Sc.
