Engineering Management, Graduate Diploma

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

General information

The Graduate Diploma in Engineering Management provides students with an alternative form of professional development when they do not wish to do a full master’s degree but want to take graduate-level courses. Courses within the graduate diploma program are the same as those taken by the master’s students in the Master of Engineering Management (MEngM) program and are taught by the same faculty. The program 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.

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 Graduate Diploma in Engineering Management program through part-time studies.

Graduate diploma requirements

For the graduate diploma, students complete four courses for a total of 12 credits. Courses are selected as follows:

  • Two courses (6 credits) from Group A.
  • One course (3 credits) from Group C.
  • One course (3 credits) from Group B or C (except ENGR 5002G - MEng/MEngM Project ).

Note: Graduate diploma students are not permitted to take courses outside of their home program course listings for program credit. In addition, they may not take any senior fourth-year undergraduate courses from the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science in lieu of a graduate course.
