The M.Eng. in Electrical Engineering (project option) involves an internally examined research project in addition to 27 graduate level course credits. The program is oriented more towards professional development than the thesis option. The project is of significantly less scope than a thesis, and includes options such as a technical review, a design project, or a small-scale research project. Undertaking 27 course credits provides students with a very solid background in electrical and computer engineering, both in terms of breadth across the entire field and depth in the area of specialty. Graduates frequently pursue careers in research and development. A part-time program is possible.
