Program overview

The MEng in Quality Systems Engineering has two main objectives. First, to provide students with the skills and technical expertise required to design, analyze and manage quality systems. Second, to maximize students' potential as researchers in the fields of quality systems, lean engineering and supply chain management. Those enrolled in the program will engage in applied research and coursework, examining existing theories and methods that currently influence the quality of systems, services, products and processes.
