Why pursue a Master's in Quality Systems Engineering?
The main intent of this program is twofold: First, the program is meant to prepare students with the skills, knowledge, expertise in cutting-edge technologies and best practices necessary for designing, modelling, analyzing, implementing and managing quality systems.
Second, the program will put the emphasis on helping each individual acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to maximize his or her potential as a researcher in quality systems, lean engineering and supply chain management. Students will engage in applied research and academic course of study examining existing theory and ways in which these influence the quality of systems, services, products and processes.
Applicants to the Master of Engineering may apply to the Industrial Experience option in the industrial milieu through the Institute for Co-operative Education.
The requirements described here are in addition to the general degree requirements for the Master’s programs in the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science.
In order to graduate, students must have a CGPA of at least 3.00.
Credits. A fully qualified candidate is required to successfully complete a minimum of 45 credits. Additional credits may be required in some cases.
Transfer Credits. Students may be granted transfer academic credits for, in general, not more than eight credits taken in approved graduate studies prior to their entry into this program. A course submitted for transfer credit must be appropriate to the student’s program of study at Concordia University. An application for such credit will be considered only at the time of admission.
Time Limit. Please refer to the Academic Regulation page for further details regarding the Time Limit requirements.
Courses. Students must complete a total of 45 credits of course work at the 6000 or 7000 level from Topic Areas in the Engineering Courses section, including a minimum of 36 credits chosen from Topic Areas E63, E66, E67, E68, E69 and E70.
The breakdown of the 45 credits is as follows:
Twelve credits of core courses (INSE 6210, INSE 6220, INSE 6230) from Topic Area E68.
A minimum of twenty-four credits of program elective courses from Topic Areas E66, E67, E68, E69 and E70.
A maximum of nine credits of courses from other Topic Areas in theEngineering Courses section. Students shall only take one of the courses (ENGR 6991 (5-credit), INSE 6961 (1-credit), ENCS 6931(9-credit)) from Topic Area E63, or INSE 6240 (1-credit) from Topic Area E68.
Applicants to the Master of/Magisteriate in Engineering in Quality Systems Engineering program must hold a bachelor’s degree or equivalent in:
Any engineering or science discipline provided that the student has the appropriate background
Admission to this program is competitive and only applicants with high academic standing will be considered. Qualified applicants requiring prerequisite courses may be asked to take such courses in addition to their regular graduate program. The Faculty Graduate Studies Committee, in consultation with the Institute, is responsible for the recommendation of all applications for admission.
Residence Requirements. The minimum residence requirement for the Master’s degree is three terms (one year) of full-time study, or the equivalent in part-time study.
Priority will be given to those who apply within the official deadlines listed above. Some programs may continue to accept applications after these deadlines. For more information, please contact the department.
