M.Eng. applicants from non-engineering backgrounds, or from backgrounds lacking course work normally taken by Canadian engineering undergraduates, are welcome. Applicants who lack experience in Engineering design, law, professionalism and ethics, and economics may be admitted as “qualifying students”. Students who satisfactorily complete the qualifying courses in their first year continue in the M.Eng. program. M.Eng. students normally are admitted only in the fall semester due to course sequencing and pre-requisites. The number of qualifying courses required may range from one to six undergraduate courses with a maximum of three courses in fall, winter, or spring/summer semesters, depending on the academic qualifications of the students. A baccalaureate graduating average of at least 70% is required.Applicants with a marginally lower 4-year average may be accepted if their performance in the last two complete years is significantly higher (75% or more). An applicant is to have the academic background required to undertake graduate studies in the chosen field. Applicants who fail to meet this requirement but who otherwise meet the criteria may be admitted; however, background deficiencies will be addressed by taking appropriate courses either prior to or in parallel with graduate work.
