Master of Engineering (MEng)

Tackling the industrial and societal challenges of the 21st century requires specialized technical knowledge. But to get ahead in today’s workplace, engineers also have to communicate, manage, innovate and understand the world. Coming up with creative solutions to pressing global problems requires a broader skill set than ever before.

An MEng from the University of Toronto can give you that edge. You’ll take advanced technical courses, and be able to choose from a variety of specializations that take you well beyond what you learned as an undergraduate. And we also offer a professional development curriculum you won’t get from any other school. We provide a depth and breadth of education that can take your career to its fullest potential.

The MEng is designed for engineers who want to enhance their career opportunities in as little as one year of full-time study. We’ll provide you with the opportunity to develop your technical specialization and broaden your professional skills, putting you ahead of the competition.

The curriculum of about 10 courses requires that you take at least six technical courses, and allows for up to four professional development courses. Complement your technical knowledge with courses on leadership, finance, entrepreneurship and innovation that will give you the breadth you need to round out your skill set.
