Cut waiting times for surgery. Streamline supply chains. Fine-tune airline routes. In Canada’s first and only Management Engineering program, you’ll learn to analyze how organizations operate and apply engineering skills to increase their efficiency.

Over the course of your degree, you’ll develop expertise in data analytics, information systems, operations and supply chain management, and organizational behaviour. You'll also have the opportunity to gain paid work experience through co-op.

By graduation, you’ll have the know-how to design and manage complex systems, optimizing the flow of energy, materials, people, and information. And you’ll find no shortage of companies looking for your skills: in software, finance, supply chain management, health care, manufacturing, and more.
