For individuals whose primary interest is developing expertise and skills specifically for the workplace, the MEng program is likely the best graduate option.  The MEng degree requires completion of a minimum of 30 credit hours including:

  • Core courses – to develop professional skills (2 courses required)
  • Discipline required courses – to develop graduate level technical competencies (number of courses varies by program)
  • Capstone experience – demonstrates application of skills and synthesis of knowledge.  Several options available for completing the capstone.

The college offers several distinct opportunities:

Traditional on-campus programs – Available in all engineering disciplines offered through the college.  Program typically completed in two academic semesters plus one additional semester to complete the capstone.

On-line programs – Serving working engineers who cannot participate in a traditional program. The On-line programs offer 2 courses each semester so that the degree can be completed in 5 semesters.

Dual Degree programs - working with international partners – Students earn two degrees, one from UC and one from the international partner.

Aero-Systems Operations – specialized program provided in collaboration with the University of Bordeaux.  The program features a practice oriented program that results in two degrees, one from each university.
