Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry: Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry MEng

Master of Engineering​

Program Description

The MEng program is designed for engineers who wish to enhance their career opportunities in as little as one year of full-time study. Students undergo advanced professional training that is respected by employers and differentiates them in a crowded marketplace. The MEng program differs from the MASc and PhD programs in that it is oriented to learning through prescribed courses rather than through research.  

The MEng program can be taken on a full-time, extended full-time, or part-time basis. The part-time option is intended primarily for engineers in full-time professional practice.

 

Full-Time Option

Minimum Admission Requirements

  • Applicants are admitted under the General Regulations of the School of Graduate Studies. Applicants must also satisfy the Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry's additional admission requirements stated below.

  • A Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) or Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) degree in engineering with at least a mid-B (or equivalent) in each of the last two years of full-time study.

Program Requirements

  • The MEng program normally requires completion of: 

    • a total of 5.0 full-course equivalents (FCEs) or

    • 3.5 FCEs plus a 1.5-FCE project supervised by a faculty member. At the discretion of the supervisor, a second reviewer and/or oral defence may be requested for students who plan to enter the doctoral program.

  • Students normally complete the requirements in three sessions (one year).

  • Students have the option of completing an emphasis in Advanced Manufacturing; Advanced Water Technologies; Analytics; Engineering and Globalization; Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Innovation and Technology in Engineering (ELITE); Forensic Engineering; or Sustainable Energy as part of their degree program. Please see de​tails in the Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry MASc, MEng, PhD Emphases section.

Program Length

3 sessions (typical registration sequence: F/W/S)

Time Limit
