What will I learn?


The Master of Engineering (MEng) degree provides advanced training in Computer Science at the graduate level, with an emphasis on practical coursework that prepares students for a wide range of employment in the computing field. The MEng degree program is open to students with less formal Computer Science background, since it includes the coursework needed to prepare such students for more advanced Computer Science courses.

The MEng degree has a single coursework-only option that requires 30 credits derived from graded courses. This includes a required course related to ethics in computing and a project-oriented Capstone course. Students are required to complete a cluster of three courses to ensure depth in some practical aspect of computing. Full-time students in good standing can typically complete the program in three academic terms.

The Computer Science Department offers the accelerated BS/MEng degree. This program allows students to count up to 12 credits of the graded coursework toward both the BS and the MEng degree.
