The Centre for Environmental Engineering Research and Education (CEERE) in the Schulich School of Engineering (SSE) has the overall responsibility for the co-ordination and delivery of a comprehensive postgraduate program specialization in the multi-disciplinary field of energy & environment. All five engineering departments participate in delivering this SSE-wide specialization.

Applications for admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies should be submitted to the engineering department that best matches the applicant’s undergraduate and/or postgraduate academic training.

1. Degrees and Specializations Offered

Degrees with an interdisciplinary specialization in Energy & Environment:

Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
Master of Science (MSc), thesis-based
Master of Engineering (MEng), thesis-based and course-based

Only the Master of Engineering degree is available for part-time enrolment.

2. Admission Requirements

In addition to the Faculty of Graduate Studies, SSE, and home department requirements, the Energy & Environment specialization requires:

Master of Engineering and Master of Science

A bachelor’s degree in engineering.

Note: Applicants with applied science degrees may be considered, but additional undergraduate engineering courses may be required.

Doctor of Philosophy

A master’s degree in engineering.

Note: Transfer to the doctoral program without completing the master’s degree may be approved for exceptional students.

3. Application Deadline

See departmental and program sections in this Calendar for deadlines regarding submission of complete applications for students with international transcripts or with Canadian and U.S. transcripts.

4. Advanced Credit

See “Engineering Programs”.

5. Program/Course Requirements

In addition to Faculty of Graduate Studies requirements and to the course requirements described below, students should consult their “home” department in the Schulich School of Engineering for any additional program or course requirement(s).

Master of Engineering (Course-based Route)

Thirty units (5.0 full-course equivalents) of which a minimum of 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents) must be at the graduate level. Environmental Engineering 671 is required, together with at least four other courses selected from a list of courses related to Energy & Environment available from CEERE.

Note: Students with applied science undergraduate degrees may be required to take additional prerequisite courses at the undergraduate level.

Master of Engineering (Thesis-based Route)

A minimum of 12 units (2.0 full-course equivalents) graduate courses. Environmental Engineering 671 is required, together with at least one course selected from a list of courses related to Energy & Environment available from CEERE.

Note: Students with applied science undergraduate degrees may be required to take additional prerequisite courses at the undergraduate level.

Master of Science

A minimum of 12 units (2.0 full-course equivalents) graduate courses. Environmental Engineering 671 is required, together with at least one course selected from a list of courses related to Energy & Environment available from CEERE.

Note: Students with applied science undergraduate degrees may be required to take additional prerequisite courses at the undergraduate level.

Doctor of Philosophy

For applicants with Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Engineering:

A minimum of 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) graduate courses. Environmental Engineering 671 is required. In case Environmental Engineering 671, or its equivalent, has already been completed, at least one course must be selected from a list of courses related to Energy & Environment available from CEERE.

For applicants with a bachelor's degree in Engineering, but without a completed master's degree:

A minimum of 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents) graduate courses. Environmental Engineering 671 is required, together with at least two courses selected from a list of courses related to Energy & Environment available from CEERE.

Note: Students with applied science undergraduate degrees may be required to take additional prerequisite courses at the undergraduate level.

6. Additional Requirements

None.

7. Credit for Undergraduate Courses

Not applicable.

8. Time Limit

Expected completion time is two years for the Master of Science degree, and three years for the Doctor of Philosophy. Maximum completion time is four years for the Master of Science and Master of Engineering (Thesis) degrees and six years for the Master of Engineering (Courses Only) and Doctor of Philosophy degrees.

9. Supervisory Assignments

All students are required to have a thesis supervisor before the second annual registration. For students in the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degree programs, a supervisor is normally appointed at the time of admission.

10. Required Examinations

Final thesis oral examinations follow the requirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and the home graduate program.

11. Research Proposal Requirements

None.

12. Financial Assistance
