Building on our tradition of sustainability and design, the MEng program offers opportunities for advanced training in some of the most globally important fields of study. The MEng program is coursework based and can be taken as a full-time or part-time program of study. The coursework option provides graduates with a fuller understanding of engineering principles and a better grasp of their application to the solution of complex, practical problems.

All incoming MEng students are enrolled in the courses study option by default and may seek out potential advisors before or within their first semester to secure a final project.
