Dual Degree Program: Bachelor of Engineering (South China University of Technology) / Master of Engineering (University of Toronto)

Program Description

The MEng may also be taken as part of a dual degree involving the Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) program offered by the South China University of Technology's School of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering (SMAE) and the Master of Engineering program offered by the University of Toronto's Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) department. Dual degree program students complete the fourth year of their BEng as Visiting International Non-degree Students and receive a conditional offer to the MEng program. See the MEng requirements above

Upon successful completion of the degree requirements of both programs, students receive a Bachelor of Engineering degree and a Master of Engineering degree.

Application Process

  • This dual degree program allows outstanding third-year students at SMAE to apply to complete their fourth year of undergraduate studies enrolled in MIE as Visiting International Non-degree Students. These students receive a conditional offer of admission into the MEng program for their fifth year.  

Minimum Admission Requirements

  • Applicants are admitted under the General Regulations of the ​School of Graduate Studies. Applicants must also satisfy the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering's additional admission requirements stated on the department's website.
