Description A two-year MBA-MEng (Course), one-year MEng (Course), or two-year MSc (Thesis) is available. An MEng will help students learn more about a particular area within chemical, process control, or materials engineering, while allowing them the possibility to continue working in industry. An MEng is a terminal degree and is not a route to the PhD program. The MSc is a full-time, research-based program requiring the completion of a thesis. An MSc will help students concentrate on one area of study, which will benefit them as they enter or re-enter the industry with more advanced skills and knowledge.
