Masters of Engineering

Masters without thesis option

The Master’s of Engineering (M.Eng.) degree is a course-based graduate program that does not include a thesis. Students in the M.Eng. program can complete graduate courses that align with their professional interests and career goals on a full-time or part-time basis. The curriculum (table below) is designed to give graduate students a strong foundation in advanced mathematics and mechanics, while also giving students the flexibility to explore topics of interest. More information on this program can be found in the Student Handbook.
