Prospective Students – Master of Engineering

University of Toronto

Where will Canada's #1 Engineering school take you?

Our alumni and current students are the best testament to the value of a U of T Engineering graduate degree. Whether you’re interested in a career as a leader in an engineering firm, the CEO of your own company, a researcher advancing their field, a world-class educator or an aspiring astronaut, graduate study can lead to innumerable opportunities across all sectors and environments.

The Master of Engineering program provides graduate students with advanced professional training through coursework and an optional project.

MIE's MEng program provides graduate students with the tools to succeed in professional practice. The program consists of coursework and an optional project conducted under the supervision of an MIE faculty member. Students have the option to complete the MEng program on a full-time (12 month), extended full-time (two-year) or part-time basis.

MEng students can customize their degree by pursuing a certificate in addition to their degree and/or choosing an area of emphasis such as Analytics, Robotics & Mechatronics or Advanced Manufacturing.

MEng students who want to pursue a PhD degree after graduation are encouraged to complete a project. MIE also offers the research based Master of Applied Science (MASc) degree which is the usual path to the PhD program.

  • A bachelor's degree with high academic standing from a recognized university
  • Minimum GPA requirement of 3.0 (mid-B; 73-76%) in the final two years of undergraduate study
  • Satisfaction of University of Toronto’s English Language requirement
  • Coursework only option: Ten graduate courses
  • Coursework + project option: Seven graduate courses and a project

MEng students have the option of pursuing a project under the supervision of an MIE faculty member. Students are encouraged to browse MIE's core faculty members to find a supervisor for their project.

Sample project titles and areas:

  • Analysis of Origami-Inspired Metamaterials using Digital Image Correlation, Mechanics and Materials
  • Design of Open-Source Ventilator Controller, Mechanics and Design
  • Fabrication and Testing of Medical Microrobots, Robotics
  • Handheld Bioprinter Design for Deposition of Multilayered Engineered Skin Grafts, Thermofluids

Courses, Technical Emphases & Certificates

MEng students have access to the same variety of courses and expert faculty as MASc and PhD students. Our courses provide students with a stimulating learning environment that allows for both applied learning and engaging research opportunities.

Students also have the option to enhance their degree with an area of technical emphasis or certificate.

The M.Eng program is self-funded and prospective students may look into work-study and government student funding or a student line of credit through their banking institution to support their financial needs while in the program.  M.Eng students are generally not eligible for awards or scholarships, except where indicated.

M.Eng students are eligible to apply for TAships and the SGS Financial Aid & Advising Office is a resource for realistic budgeting.  Financial advisors can also assist in uncovering additional sources of funding through loans and grants. Finally, the UofT Centre for Career Exploration and Education is a resource for students seeking work and career advice.
