Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (by faculty)

Degree requirements for the Master of Engineering (MEng) in Electrical and Computer Engineering are listed below. For general program information, admission requirements, graduate faculty lists and/or details on part-time options, see Electrical and Computer Engineering .

Degree requirements

The objective of the MEng program in Electrical and Computer Engineering is to provide the opportunity for engineers in industry to upgrade and expand their skills, including research skills. Graduates of the program will be able to apply what they have learned in a variety of applications in industry, government and academia. Depending on which option the student selects, the objective of the MEng program can be achieved through either a combination of course work and a project or solely course work. MEng students have exposure to research through projects included in most of the graduate courses.

For the project option, students must complete seven courses worth a total of 21 credits and a project worth nine credits (ENGR 5002G - MEng/MEngM Project ).

Undergraduate courses

In addition to the required graduate courses, students may take only one senior year undergraduate engineering course (i.e., with prefix ENGR 4xxxU) in lieu of a graduate-level course, provided they have not already taken a similar course during their undergraduate degree and the course is approved by both the student's supervisor and the graduate program director.

Courses outside of the program

Courses in other graduate programs at UOIT may be taken provided that students have not taken similar courses during their undergraduate or master's degrees and the courses are approved by the graduate program director. At least half of a student's courses must be within their program in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. Students who wish to take courses outside of their program must gain approval from the graduate program director. Students who are uncertain about the academic background needed for a graduate course should consult the course instructor before registering for the course.

Course listing

Graduate courses offered are listed below. Courses related to communications and signal processing are numbered as ENGR 56xxG. Courses related to software and computer systems are numbered as ENGR 57xxG. Courses related to electronics and mechatronics are numbered as ENGR 58xxG. Courses related to control systems and power systems are numbered as ENGR 59xxG.


Courses are offered on the basis of demand with the expectation that most courses will be offered at a minimum of once every three years.
