Program description

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science offers graduate diplomas in civil, communications, computer, electrical, energy systems, mechanical, ocean and naval architecture, oil and gas, process, and safety and risk engineering. Faculty knowledge spans a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds; many faculty members have extensive industrial experience and supplement their teaching and research programmes with consulting services.

The graduate programmes offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science have expanded dramatically in recent years, both in terms of student strength and course and programme variety. Our faculty members are increasingly involved in important research initiatives funded by NSERC, AIF, CRC, and CFI, giving students rare opportunities to collaborate alongside distinguished project investigators. Graduate students have access to all research facilities and resources, and research funding is divided across fields. The faculty encourages students to construct distinctive and difficult personalised curricula by combining two or more standard subjects.

The MEng programme consists of courses as well as a thesis that can be completed in two years of full-time study.
