What is the difference between the MSc and MEng programs?
The MSc program is only available for students within the Thesis stream and is intended for applicants who do not hold an undergraduate Engineering degree.
While most rules, policies and procedures governing graduate studies at McGill University are determined by Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, the Department of Mechanical Engineering maintains its own policies and procedures, which are provided below. These policies and procedures are administered by the Graduate Program Coordinator (GPC), Graduate Admissions Coordinator, Graduate Program Director (GPD) and Graduate Administration Committee (GAC).

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.
While the duration of this program is dependent on the nature of the research project and the capabilities of the candidate, the minimum is two years study beyond the M.Eng. degree. Within twelve months of starting a Ph.D., the candidate is required to present his/her proposed research program for review by a faculty committee in a Preliminary Ph.D. Oral Examination. A defence of the Ph.D. thesis concludes the doctoral research.
Special students are those who are enrolled in graduate level courses without being enrolled in a degree program. Special Students are limited to a maximum of two courses per term (6 credits), with a cumulative maximum of twelve credits.
