General information


The Master of Engineering Management (MEngM) allows students to study the areas of planning, allocating resources, and directing and controlling activities which have an engineering or technological component. Students learn to apply engineering principles for organizing and directing personnel and resources in technical projects.

The program provides courses in the areas of engineering project management, production planning and operations management, energy systems management, mathematical modeling and optimization as they pertain to complex engineering systems, quality control, health and safety, and applied risk analysis.

A current list of graduate faculty is available on the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science’s website.

Admission requirements


In addition to the general admission requirements for graduate studies , applicants must meet the following program-specific requirements.

  • Completion of an undergraduate engineering degree in a relevant field from an accredited engineering program at a Canadian university, or its equivalent from a recognized institution.
  • Overall academic standing of at least a B (GPA: 3.0 on a 4.3 scale), with a minimum B in the last two full-time years (four semesters) of undergraduate work or equivalent.

Part-time studies


To facilitate access to all potential students, part-time studies are permitted. Engineers in local industries and government agencies, for example, may wish to access the MEngM through part-time studies.

Degree requirements


Course-based option

For the course-based option, students must complete 10 courses for a total of 30 credits. Courses are selected as follows:

  • Five courses (15 credits) total from Group A
  • One course (3 credits) from Group B
  • Two courses (6 credits) from Group C
  • One course (3 credits) from Group D

Note: A maximum of three courses may be taken outside of the home program course listings, at or external to the university, subject to approval by the graduate program director.

Project option

For the project option, students must complete seven courses and a research project for a total of 30 credits. Courses are selected as follows:

Note: A maximum of two courses may be taken outside of the home program course listings, at or external to the university subject to approval by the graduate program director.

Undergraduate courses


MEngM students may take one senior fourth-year undergraduate course within the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science in lieu of an engineering elective course, provided they have not already taken a similar course during their undergraduate degree and the course is approved by the graduate program director.
