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.
MEng (non-Thesis) is a course program requiring a minimum of 45 credits to be distributed as follows: a design project of 12 credits, nine (9) one-semester courses with a combined weight of at least 32 credits, and a one-credit seminar. While intended to bea full-time program, the MEng (non-Thesis) may be completed on a part-time basis.
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.
Applicants to the M.Eng. (non-Thesis) program must hold an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering (or equivalent).
This is a course-type Master's degree which requires 12 graduate courses for completion. All candidates are required to take the following courses (numbers in brackets represent the credit weighting of the course):
NB: The first four (core) courses above should be taken in the first year in the program. The last three courses above are taken near the end of the program.
The remaining courses (minimum 16 credits, 500 level or above, from the Faculty of Engineering) may be selected by the student, based on interest and the choice of the area of concentration. Courses at the graduate level from other faculties may also be taken, with prior approval from the student's project supervisor and the Graduate Program Director. A maximum of 3 credits of FACC courses at the 500, 600, or 700 level may be credited toward the degree.
