Engineering and Applied Science
Why Engineering and Applied Science @ Memorial?
The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science offers graduate diplomas and MASc, MEng, and PhD degrees in the various engineering disciplines, including Civil, Communications, Computer, Electrical, Energy Systems, Mechanical, Ocean and Naval Architecture, Oil and Gas, Process, and Safety and Risk engineering. Faculty expertise encompasses a wide cross-section of specialties and backgrounds; many faculty members have broad industrial experience and complement their teaching and research programs with consultancy services.
The graduate programs offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science have grown tremendously in the past few years, both in terms of student strength and variety of courses and programs. Our faculty members are increasingly engaged in major research programs supported by NSERC, AIF, CRC and CFI, providing students unique opportunities to work alongside investigators of prestigious projects. Research funding is distributed across the disciplines and graduate students have access to all research facilities and resources. The faculty encourages students to combine two or more traditional disciplines to develop unique and challenging individual programs.
Students interested in the field of software engineering may also choose to pursue the Master of Applied Science in Software Engineering, jointly offered by the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science.
Description of programs
- Graduate diploma – The graduate diploma programs involve courses only and can be completed in less than two years of full-time study.
Please note, we are not currently accepting applications for the Graduate Diploma in Safety and Risk Engineering. We would encourage you to apply for one of our other programs at this time.
- MASc – The MASc in Computer Engineering, Energy Systems Engineering, Environmental Systems and Engineering Management, Oil and Gas Engineering, and Safety and Risk Engineering involves courses only and can be completed in less than two years of full-time study.
- MEng – The MEng program involves courses and a thesis, and can be completed in two years of full-time study.
- PhD – The PhD program involves courses, a comprehensive exam, and a thesis. It can normally be completed in four years of full-time study.
Contact a faculty supervisor
Graduate applicants interested in research-based programs are strongly encouraged to connect with a faculty supervisor at the time of application. Visit the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science website for a list of faculty members, their research interests, and contact information. You may also use the Yaffle search application to find a supervisor you may wish to work with.
The School of Graduate Studies offers advice on how to search for and contact potential supervisors. Need more help? Try attending one of our webinars and information sessions for prospective graduate students.
