Achieve Your Potential
Now that you have been out of Skule™ for a time, you may be seeking opportunities to enhance your career growth potential and complement your technical education. The University of Toronto now offers a one-year course-based Master of Engineering (MEng) degree that combines engineering business with advanced technical engineering knowledge. Based on your term averages in third and fourth year, you may be eligible for admission to the MEng program. In addition to technical courses, we also offer ELITE (Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Innovation, and Technology in Engineering) courses such as Financial Engineering, Human Resources Management, and Entrepreneurship and Business for Engineers. To help you achieve this degree in one year, a selection of intensive ELITE courses will be provided in the summer term. If you are interested in research, the Master of Applied Science (MASc) and ultimately the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) may be for you. Please consult the website of the department you are interested in for details of individual professor’s research topics...
