Master's Programs - Thesis

The length of study for full-time students is approximately eighteen (18) months for any of the Master's degree options. The time limit to complete a Master's degree is 3 years (full time) and 5 years part time. The MEng (Thesis) program is only available on a full-time basis.

Eligibility

In the case of all Master's programs, applicants must have successfully completed an undergraduate degree, or the equivalent, with a minimum CGPA equivalent to 3.3 on a scale of 4.0. Satisfaction of these minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.

MEng (Thesis)

MEng (Thesis) is a research program requiring a minimum of 45 credits to be distributed as follows: 28 credits of thesis work, a set of one-semester courses with a combined weight of no less than 16 credits, and a one-credit seminar. The MEng (Thesis) program is a full-time program.

Eligibility

Applicants to the MEng (Thesis) program, including the CSE Option, must hold an undergraduate Engineering or Applied Science degree (or equivalent).

MSc (Thesis)

This program is governed by the same regulations as the MEng (Thesis) program, but is intended for applicants who do not hold an undergraduate Engineering degree.

Eligibility

Applicants to the MSc (Thesis) program must hold an undergraduate degree in a non-engineering discipline (typically the Physical Sciences). Applicants with an Engineering or Applied Science Degree are not be eligible to apply to this program.

Program Requirements

MEng (Thesis) degree (minimum 45 credits)

This is a thesis-type Master's degree which requires the following thesis-related credits to be taken (numbers in brackets represent the credit weighting):

[ Medium MECH 609 ] [ Medium MECH 691 ] [ Medium MECH 692 ] [ Medium MECH 693 ] [ Medium MECH 694 ] [ Medium MECH 695 ]

NB: MECH-691 is to be completed in the first semester of the student's program.

A thesis describing the candidate's research is to be submitted in accordance with the rules of the Faculty and is the major requirement for the degree.
