Master of/Magisteriate in Engineering (MEng)

The MEng Program

This program is designed to provide practicing engineers with an opportunity to strengthen and extend the knowledge they have obtained at the undergraduate level, to develop their design skills, and to enhance their ability to present technical material in written form.

Admission Requirements

  • Bachelor’s degree in engineering or equivalent with high standing.

Additional Admission Requirements

Applicants with a bachelor’s degree in architecture with high engineering content may also be considered for the MEng program. Such students will be required to enrol in an extended program.

The GCS Graduate Studies Committee will determine the acceptability of an applicant for admission to the program and may require an applicant to take specified undergraduate courses in order to qualify for acceptance. Qualified applicants requiring prerequisite courses may be required to take such courses in addition to their regular graduate program. Applicants with deficiencies in their undergraduate preparation may be required to take a qualifying program. An ability to write simple programs in a standard computer language will be assumed. Students lacking this skill will be required to register for the appropriate course. This course will be taken in addition to regular degree requirements.

Degree Requirements

Fully-qualified candidates are required to complete a minimum of 45 credits.

Credits. For specific program requirements, refer to the relevant departmental entry in the following pages. Each individual program of study must be approved by the student’s department.

Transfer Credits. Student may be granted transfer academic credits for, in general, not more than 12 credits taken in approved graduate studies prior to their entry into this program. A course submitted for transfer credits 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.

Option Changes. Transfers between all Master’s programs at the Gina Cody School are considered option changes. All courses attempted in the original program are included in the new option and calculated in the CGPA.

Other Courses. A limited number of credits are recognized toward the MEng degree for courses taken under the heading Impact of Engineering on Society and for cognate courses taken from the MBA program. For details refer to the relevant departmental entry in the following pages.

Cross-Registration. A student in the program wishing to take courses under the cross-registration scheme must first obtain approval of the GCS Graduate Studies Committee.

Time Limit. Please refer to the Academic Regulation page for further details regarding the Time Limits.

Project. Depending on individual department requirements, students may choose to do one or more projects as part of their program. They do so by registering for one or more of the sequence ENGR 6971, ENGR 6981, ENGR 6991. Where students choose to carry out a multi-course project, the project will be graded by at least two professors.

With the permission of their Department, students in the MEng Program may register for these project courses if they wish to carry out a more extended project, or if they wish to complete further projects. Each project course requires prior approval by the faculty member who has accepted to supervise the work. Students working on a multi-course project must register for the corresponding project courses in successive terms. For ENGR 6991 and multi-course projects, the report is due on the last day of classes of the last term in which they are registered. In the case of ENGR 6991 and multi-course project, three copies of the report must be submitted to the advisor on or before this deadline, and students are also required to make an oral presentation to the evaluators, and other members of the community. The report will be evaluated by the advisor and at least one other Engineering and Computer Science member of the Gina Cody School.

Graduate Co-op Option in the Master of Engineering

The Graduate Co-op Option is a structured Internship program offered through the Institute for Co-operative Education. Students registered in the Master of Engineering (MEng) program with the Gina Cody School (GCS) are eligible to apply to the Co-op Option. For the general guidelines, please refer to the Institute of Co-operative Education.

Admission Criteria

In addition to the general requirements for entrance into the Institute for Co-operative Education, the GCS has these additional requirements:

  • Students apply to the Graduate Co-op Option in the first year of their academic program.
  • Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or better throughout their studies.
  • Some academic programs may have a higher GPA requirement and/or additional admission requirements.
  • Registration for ENCS 6921 must be approved by the Department Co-op Program Academic Director or Graduate Program Director.
