The minimum admission requirements for the MEng and MASc programs are completion of an undergraduate engineering degree from a related and accredited engineering program at a Canadian university, or its equivalent, with a minimum of a B (75%) average in the last two years, although a B+ is preferred for MASc applicants. Applicants must possess maturity and self-motivation.
The minimum admission requirements for the PhD progams are completion of a research project or thesis-based master’s level degree from a recognized institution in Engineering or a closely related subject and a minimum B+ average (GPA: 3.3 on a 4.3 scale).
Since close technical contact with a faculty member is an essential part of graduate education in engineering, MASc students must find a professor, who specializes in the applicant’s desired area of research and is willing to act as a supervisor, prior to being accepted into the program. MEng students who wish to do the MEng Project option must find a professor who is willing to act as a project supervisor. In the event an MEng student cannot find a project supervisor, the student must transfer into the MEng Course option.
International applicants are welcome, as we recognize that the diverse perspectives such students bring enhances the overall learning environment. We believe that the graduate studies offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science are of great value to international students, not just in terms of the courses and research available, but also as examples of how engineering disciplines are taught, practiced and advanced in Canada. Our location in the greater Toronto area allows for interactions with a wide range of industry.
Proof of English proficiency is required for those applicants whose first language is not English (see current policy on English proficiency in the Academic Calendar).
