6.5.1 Program of Study

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science offers a program in Energy Systems Engineering leading to the degree of Master of Applied Science in Energy Systems Engineering (MESE). The program is available on a full-time basis. There are two options: Option 1 focuses on energy generation and utilization and Option 2 focuses heavily on electrical aspects of energy engineering. Option 1 is designed for students with an engineering degree in mechanical, chemical, industrial or in a related discipline. Option 2 is designed for students with a degree in electrical engineering or in a related discipline.

6.5.2 Qualifications for Admission
  1. Admission is limited and competitive.

  2. To be considered for admission, applicants shall normally hold a minimum second class Bachelor’s Degree in engineering in mechanical, electrical, chemical, industrial, or in a related discipline from a university of recognized standing.

  3. To be eligible for consideration for admission, applicants will meet the English Proficiency Requirements described under General Regulations of the School of Graduate Studies.

6.5.3 Degree Requirements
  1. The degree program requires the completion of 30 credit hours for both Options 1 and 2.

6.5.4 Evaluation

Students must obtain a grade of at least 65% in all program courses to receive credit for the course towards their program requirements. Any student who fails to receive 65% or more in a course, must repeat the course in the case of core courses, or must either repeat or replace the course with another program course in the case of elective courses. Any student who receives a grade of less than 65% in two courses or in a repeated course will be required to withdraw from the program.
