Master of Engineering

The Institute for Aerospace Studies may accept candidates for the M.Eng. degree under the general regulations of the School of Graduate Studies.

Candidates for the M.Eng. degree shall hold the degree of Bachelor of Applied Science of the University of Toronto or an equivalent degree from a 4-year engineering undergraduate program.

The program may be pursued on a full-time, extended full-time or part-time basis:

  • Full-time option: students normally complete the requirements in three sessions (one year).
  • Extended full-time option: students are expected to complete the requirements in six sessions (two years) and are limited to six half courses per year and three half courses per session.
  • Part-time option: students are limited to four half courses per year and two half courses per session. Students normally complete the requirements in nine sessions (three years).

The option must be selected at the outset of the program and transfer between the options is not permitted.

Under the guidance of the graduate coordinator or a staff supervisor, a candidate selects a program of study that consists of at least 10 courses. Individual programs will be arranged to make up for background deficiencies.

Domestic M.Eng. students (Canadian citizens or permanent residents) starting their studies in September 2016, in either the full-time option or extended full-time option, will qualify for a $3,000 admission award.
