What will I learn?

The Master of Engineering (MEng) degree offered at the University of Windsor is a course work professional program open to students who satisfy the admission requirements. The MEng Program takes three to five semesters to complete but is structured in such a way that it may be completed in one year by a full-time student. The minimum period of full-time registration for the MEng degree is three semesters and the maximum allowable time is five semesters. For part-time students, the minimum period of registration for the MEng degree is eight semesters and the maximum allowable time is fifteen consecutive semesters. Practical work-experience placements are available for full-time students only, but cannot be guaranteed.

An MEng Degree may be awarded upon successful completion of a total of eight courses (the MEng has no research component/thesis/work with a faculty supervisor). Of these eight courses:

  • Four courses must be from the student's department (major; electrical and computer)
  • Plus four required courses to be taken in the first or second semester of the program: Computational Methods and Modeling for Engineering Applications; Engineering Technical Communications; Engineering Mathematics; and Engineering Project Management
  • Co-op program is optional and students must apply for admission in their first study term.
