Master of Engineering (MEng)
The Master of Engineering (MEng) is a coursework degree requiring at least seven courses, one graduate seminar and a project. The MEng is a professionally-oriented degree.
An MEng project must show the student’s ability to carry through to completion a project of a credible level of difficulty that draws on the knowledge and experience gained through advanced undergraduate and graduate industrial engineering course work.
Alternatively, a student may elect to do two additional courses instead of the project.
Possession of an engineering baccalaureate degree or its academic equivalent from an academic institution recognized by Dalhousie University, in which the language of instruction is English, or four years of full-time post-secondary instruction at a university where English is the primary language of instruction and in a country where English is the principal language; otherwise, a satisfactory score on an approved English language examination is required.
The MEng degree requires not less then 21 credit hours, the gradaute seminar and a six credit hours project.
Undergraduate courses, in the area of a student’s interest, not taken by the student for previous credit, may be included in the program, subject to prior approval. Not more than 12 credit hours may be undergraduate credit hours.
Length of Program
The typical time to complete a MEng is one to two years.
Areas of project application include operations research, ergonomics, and a variety of other fields related to the professors’ specialties. Students entering the Master of Engineering program come from a variety of backgrounds, including Industrial Engineering and other branches of engineering.
Candidates must satisfy the general requirements for admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
