Electrical and Computer Engineering: Electrical and Computer Engineering MEng

Master of Engineering​

Program Description

The MEng program is designed to provide professional training beyond the undergraduate level and to accelerate careers with specialized engineering expertise needed in business, government, and industry.

The MEng program can be taken on a full-time, extended full-time, or part-time basis.

 

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 Electrical and Computer Engineering's additional admission requirements stated below.

  • An appropriate bachelor's degree in electrical and computer engineering or its equivalent from a recognized university.

  • High academic standing equivalent to a mid-B or better, normally demonstrated by an average grade in the final year or over senior-level courses.

Program Requirements

  • Coursework. Normally, completion of 4.5 graduate full-course equivalents (FCEs) or nine half courses for applicants with adequate undergraduate preparation. At least 2.5 graduate FCEs or five half courses must be drawn from graduate courses offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

  • Students must enrol in a field of study.

  • Students may choose to complete an engineering project with an equivalent value of 1.5 FCEs. Students choosing the project option will be required to complete a total of 3.0 FCEs in addition to the project. In order to pursue the project option, the student must secure a professor who will act as the supervisor throughout the project.

  • Students have the option of completing an emphasis in Analytics; Biomedical Engineering; Communications; Computer Engineering; Electromagnetics; Electronics; Energy Systems; Engineering and Globalization; Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Innovation and Technology in Engineering (ELITE); Identity, Privacy and Security (IPS)​; Photonics; Robotics and Mechatronics; Sustainable Energy; or Systems Control as part of their degree program. Please see details in the Electrical and Computer Engineering MASc, MEng, PhD Emphases section.
