MEng Program

OVERVIEW

The course-based MEng program is designed for engineering graduates who want to advance their careers with further education.  In addition to courses in specific technical areas, students take a variety of courses such as technical communications, ethics, and leadership.

Two streams are available for the MEng program.  Both options are open to all students.

  • 12 Months, courses only
  • 16 – 24 Months with Internship starting in September of the second year of study.  The internship is facilitated by the co-op office. The co-op team will help prepare students for interviews and cultural training to assist with the integration into the Canadian workforce. The co-op office will also connect students with potential employers. Students choosing this option must submit a registration form to the School of Engineering by the end of the first term of study. Internships last between 4 and 12 months. The length will depend on student’s preference and availability of internships.
