|FACULTY OF ENGINEERING
The following requirements are supplementary to the University's general requirements as set out by the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
THE FOLLOWING APPLIES TO THE DEPARTMENTS OF CIVIL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING, ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING, INDUSTRIAL AND MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS ENGINEERING, AND MECHANICAL, AUTOMOTIVE AND MATERIALS ENGINEERING
THE DEGREE OF MASTER OF ENGINEERING
Areas of Specialization
The areas of specialization are listed by Department.
A candidate for the degree of Master of Engineering shall hold the degree of Bachelor of Applied Science from this University or an equivalent degree in Engineering or Applied Science from another University. In addition, the applicant must have at least second-class standing or its equivalent in the final year and be recommended by the Program Graduate Committee in which the candidate plans to undertake studies. Applicant qualifications will be assessed through a Prior Learning Assessment Committee, if necessary, set up for this purpose by the Dean of Engineering or his/her designate in consultation with the Dean of Graduate Studies.
Applicants with degrees in related fields may be considered but will normally require strengthening of their background in Enginneering. At the discretion of the AAU's relevant Graduate Studies Committee, the Graduate Record Examination (GREE) may be required. In such instances, rules outlined in the application procedures of this calendar shall apply.
All applicants whose native language is not English are required to satisfy the English proficiency requirement as described in the application procedures of this calendar.
Applicants who can demonstrate relevant post-Baccalaureate engineering employment experience may be given preference during the admission process.
Possession of the minimum requirements does not automatically ensure acceptance into the program.
It is not anticipated that students with an M.Eng. Degree will seek admission into our Ph.D. programs. However, if they do, the Prior Learning Assessment Committee will determine what extra credits will be required for admission into the Ph.D. program. Students will not be allowed to take both degrees, M.Eng. and M.A.Sc., concurrently. Courses counted for one degree cannot be credited towards the other, although students may apply for permission to transfer between the two masters programs, provided they meet the admission requirement of the new program.
The M.Eng. consists of a total of 8 (eight) graduate level courses (equivalent to a minimum of 24 credits). The distribution of these courses will be as follows:
1) A minimum of 6 (six) courses, equivalent to 18 credits from the Faculty of Engineering, with a minimum of 4 (four) courses, equivalent to 12 credits in the specific program.
2) No more than 2 (two) courses, equivalent to 6 credits, from any graduate program within the university.
Any deviations from the above requires the approval of the Faculty of Engineering and the programs involved.
One of the 4 courses from the specific program may have one or two short projects (case studies) requiring literature research, report writing and presentations. Each student in the program should obtain approval from the Program's MEng Coordinator/Department Head regarding the planned program of study.
