Master of Engineering with a Graduate Specialization in Green Energy

Banner of electric poles, wind turbine, solar panels, and green fields.

Objectives of the Specialization in Green Energy

  • to produce engineers with more specialized technical training and a specific focus in green energy
  • to offer a course-work professional development graduate program for practicing engineers to be formally trained in the area of green energy
  • to provide new immigrant, foreign-trained engineers a degree program that facilitates quicker entry to the Canadian workforce in the important technical area of significant national interest
  • to provide newly graduated engineers an opportunity to pursue graduate education in the area of green energy

Degree requirements

Students must complete the degree requirements of the general MEng program which requires: satisfactory completion of eight one-term graduate level courses, one communications course, the Academic Integrity Quiz, and attend four MME seminars. To add the Graduate Diploma in Green Energy, four of the eight graduate level courses must include the one mandatory course and three specific courses.
