The flexible Master of Engineering program can be completed in as little as one year of full-time study or up to two years if an internship or project-based experience is desired. Part-time options are also available.
The MEng Curriculum requires completion of at least 32 graduate-level credits, with a cumulative GPA >= 3.0, while satisfying a specialization requirement. The remaining credits must be graduate electives.
The specialization requirement is met by taking structured courses with grades of C or higher from a single MEng specialization area (see the back of this sheet) in one of two ways:
1. Take two 700-level courses (8 credits) from a single specialization area OR
2. Take four graduate courses (16 credits) from a single specialization area.
The graduate electives are ECE graduate courses, non-ECE ENG graduate courses or CAS graduate courses in scientific/technical areas. You must obtain a grade of C or better in each graduate elective. Graduate electives may include at most 4 credits of courses at the 9XX level. Students may also explore graduate electives that embrace technical project management, entrepreneurship, or leadership development.*
