Master of Engineering

The Master of Engineering (MEng) Program is a degree program of graduate coursework (1000 and 500 level coursework) intended to provide continuing and advanced education for recent graduates and civil engineers in professional practice. It can be completed by coursework only, or by a combination of coursework and a design project.

Program Requirements

The MEng program consists of 10 one-semester courses, 6 of which have to be from the Department of Civil Engineering. The remaining 4 can be from outside of the Department, and two of these can be from outside of the Faculty of Applied Science of Engineering or outside of the University of Toronto. MEng students also have the option of doing a 1 or 2 term project, which counts toward your 6 Civil courses. APS courses, offered by the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, are counted as part of your 4 courses outside the Department.
