Master of Engineering (MEng)

Please review the degree requirements, optional emphases, MEng-focused courses, and delivery options for the MEng program.

General Requirements for Degree

1)  Students must complete nine approved graduate courses:

      • At least six of the nine courses must be technical courses (examples of non-technical course codes: APS, RSM, LAW).
        • At least five of the six technical courses must be ECE courses.
        • A maximum of two 500-level courses is recommended.

2)  Students may choose to complete a project (ECE2500Y “MEng Project”) with a value equivalent to three ECE 1000-level courses. Students choosing the project option will be required to complete a total of six courses 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. The supervisor must hold a graduate faculty appointment in ECE.

      • Students who wish to enrol in a project (ECE2500Y) must complete an Add Course Form, including the signature of the project supervisor, and return the form to the ECE Graduate Office.  Forms may be submitted in person or via email to the ECE Graduate Office.
      • When the Graduate Office receives the form, the project supervisor will be contacted to provide project details.  Once the parameters of the project have been sufficiently reported, the Graduate Office will enrol the student in ECE2500Y on ACORN.

MEng Emphases

In addition to the general requirements, students have the option of completing an emphasis in one of the following areas as part of their degree program:

The detailed requirements for each emphasis are listed in the ‘Electrical and Computer Engineering: Electrical and Computer Engineering MASc, MEng, PhD Emphases’ section of ECE’s SGS Calendar entry. Students may complete more than one emphasis. Students who complete an emphasis (or emphases) will receive a corresponding notation on their University of Toronto transcript.
