The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science offers the graduate diploma and MASc, MEng, and PhD degrees in the various engineering disciplines, including Civil, Computer, Electrical, Mechanical, Ocean and Naval, Oil and Gas, Process, and Safety and Risk engineering. Faculty expertise encompasses a wide cross-section of specialties and backgrounds; many faculty members have broad industrial experience and complement their teaching and research programs with consultancy services.
The graduate programs offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science have grown tremendously in the past few years, both in terms of student strength and variety of courses and programs. Our faculty members are increasingly engaged in major research programs supported by NSERC, AIF, CRC and CFI, providing students unique opportunities to work alongside investigators of prestigious projects. Research funding is distributed across the disciplines and graduate students have access to all research facilities and resources. The faculty encourages students to combine two or more traditional disciplines to develop unique and challenging individual programs.
Description of programs
- Graduate diploma The graduate diploma program in Safety and Risk Engineering involves courses only and can be completed in less than two years of full-time study.
- MASc The MASc in Computer Engineering, Environmental Systems and Engineering Management, and Oil and Gas involves courses only and can be completed in less than two years of full-time study.
- MEng The MEng program involves courses and a thesis, and can be completed in two years of full-time study.
- PhD The PhD program involves courses, a comprehensive exam, and a thesis. It can normally be completed in four years of full-time study.
