Nuclear Engineering, MEng - UNENE administered program

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (by degree)



General information

An alternative to the regular program of study leading to a Master of Engineering (MEng) in Nuclear Engineering is available at Ontario Tech University. This program is administered by the University Network of Excellence in Nuclear Engineering (UNENE), a Canadian-based alliance of universities, nuclear power utilities, research and regulatory agencies for the support and development of nuclear education, research and development capability in Canadian universities. UNENE was created through the partnership of five Ontario universities including McMaster University, Queen’s University, Ontario Tech University, University of Waterloo and Western University.

The UNENE MEng program was designed for the working professional, providing engineers the enhanced knowledge, tools, technology and business and management skills necessary to keep them at the forefront of their profession. Courses are offered on alternate weekends, usually over a seven-week period, versus the more typical offering of semester-based, weekly lectures delivered in three-hour sessions. Courses can also be delivered using distance education tools to accommodate those students working at sites remote from the Greater Toronto Area. Additional details on the UNENE program are available at unene.ca.

Admission requirements

UNENE requires an honours or four‐year degree in engineering, science or mathematics and a B average or better. UNENE also considers any relevant work or research history. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance.

Individuals who choose to apply for admission to the university will, once their application is approved, be registered within the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. The master’s degree awarded by the university will be MEng with a Nuclear Engineering designation.

Part-time studies

The UNENE program is offered on a part-time basis only.

Degree requirements

Students in the UNENE program must complete 10 UNENE courses or eight courses and an industrial project. The project is normally co-sponsored by the student’s employer and one of the universities. Students have a maximum of five years to complete the required number of courses.
