- 10 half-credit (H) courses in total, of which
- a minimum of 6 must be technical (at least 3 from ChemE)
- a maximum of 4 may be non-technical
- a maximum of 3 half-credit (H) 500-level courses (undergrad courses open to grad students) may count towards the degree. 500-level courses are either technical or non-technical based on the course content.
- May complete an optional MEng Project, which counts as 3 half-credit (H) technical courses. Must complete departmental Safety Training (CHE2222H) before starting the project.
Students in a collaborative program must satisfy the requirements of that program in addition to this Department’s requirements. Some courses may count simultaneously towards both a student’s MEng degree and a collaborative program. Careful course planning and consultation with the MEng Advisor and the Cross-Disciplinary Programs Office is recommended.
The table below shows the normal course loads and time limits for MEng program.
|MEng Program||Length (academic sessions)||Time limit for program completion||Normal course load|
|Full-time||3 sessions||3 years||4 courses in Fall (3 technical, 1 non-technical)
4 courses in Winter (3 technical, 1 non-technical)
2 courses in Summer (2 non-technical)
|Extended full-time||6 sessions||3 years||6 courses / year
(max. 3 / academic session)
|Part-time||9 sessions||6 years||1-4 courses/year (max. 2 / academic session)|
MEng students are not required to be in full-time residence (physically on campus on a full-time basis) and do not need to be continually enrolled in courses. The one exception is the MEng project (CHE1800Y). Once a student enrols in the project course CHE1800Y, he or she must be continually enrolled in the project (and pay fees) until the project is complete.
Full-time MEng students are entitled to a locker, located outside the Graduate Student Lounge (WB247). Contact the Graduate Assistant to sign out a locker.
