Graduate Studies

Masters of Engineering

The Masters program enables qualified students to study advanced courses in their field of interest in the mining industry. The non-research program (M.Eng.) requires that several more courses be taken, but the project, which may be completed by the student, is not defended formally, as is the case for the research program. The objectives of the program are to provide the mining industry with specialist personnel capable of solving broad problems either as mining or research company employees or consultants.


The requirement for completion of the M.Eng. degree is eight (8) term length courses. Two of the courses can be at the 400 undergraduate level. Students are eligible to take any relevant courses listed in the Graduate Calendar, as long as at least four (4) of the courses are taken from their home department.  Students generally take a set of courses that fit their background and interest. In Mining Engineering, students have the option to take MINE-898, a project-based courses that counts as two courses towards the required eight courses total. 


Graduate students shall be required to complete training on the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA), through the online course in Accessible Customer Service, as part of their graduate degree program, and prior to being approved for graduation.
