Mechanical Engineering

Master of Engineering pathways

Student status

The calendar states that students will be considered fulltime if they enroll in 18 units or more per annual registration. It also states that the minimum program requirements for course-based Master of Engineering (MEng) is 30 units, with the typical completion time of two years for full-time students.

As such, students enrolled in the MEng graduate program are considered fulltime if they are demonstrating expected program progression with credits passed and in-progress corresponding with typical completion time. MEng recommended pathways have been designed to meet the definition of fulltime status. Students opting to follow the pathway specific to their program and specialization are automatically considered fulltime. Courses listed in each pathway have been carefully selected to ensure seat availability and no scheduling conflicts.

MEng students continue to have the opportunity to select courses based on individual interests and may choose to define a study plan unique to them as an alternative to the recommended pathway. It is recommended that these students complete a minimum of 18 credits in Year 1 with the balance of credit requirements distributed over Year 2 to ensure expected program progression corresponding with typical completion time. Please be aware that courses outside of the recommended pathway are subject to availability, and may not permit self-registration.
