The Master of Engineering in Electrical and Computer Engineering is a course-based program designed to enhance the knowledge, design skills and presentation abilities of practicing engineers. This program combines practical course work with the option to complete one or more projects. Students who want the option to continue on to a PhD should enrol in the MASc program instead of the MEng program.
Fully-qualified candidates are required to complete a minimum of 45 credits.
32 credits minimum
