A new Master of Engineering (MEng) in Electrical and Computer Engineering degree program will be offered beginning fall 2020. The MEng program is specially designed for students who plan to enter industry after graduation and who have decided their specialty.

The program is highly structured and emphasizes rigorous theory combined with practical training. Additional areas of focus are project management, communication, and entrepreneurship. The program leverages the strong course content of the College of Engineering’s #1 nationally ranked Center for Entrepreneurship.

“The goal of the program is to train students with basic knowledge, hands-on experience, practical training, and entrepreneurship in areas where there are high demands from industries,” says Prof. Leung Tsang, who oversaw the development of the program. “I hope that the graduates find good placement and excel in industries.”
