*Accelerated Masters Program

4th Year Engineering Students who have an average mark of 80% over their 2nd & 3rd years may be eligible for the Accelerated Masters Program. At the end of their 3rd year students will find a professor willing to act as advisor and provide financial support for their future MESc studies. The department will accept this student for future MESc study, on the condition that an average of at least 75% will be maintained during their 4th year undergraduate courses.

The student may take up to 2 graduate half courses in their 4th year. These courses are extra courses and will not contribute to their undergraduate degree. If a mark of 75% or higher is obtained in these courses , advanced credit for these two courses will automatically be granted upon MESc registration.

Students would immediately be admitted as an MESc student in May following the completion of their 4th year undergraduate term.

MEng to MESc Program Change

Once enrolled in the MEng program it is possible to change your program to the MESc program. In order to do this the following requirements must be met:

1.)    Find a supervisor willing to admit you to the MESc program and sponsor you within the program

2.)    A candidate must acquire the minimum fundable average of 78% North American scale, which is calculated based on the students last 10 full credits and will take into consideration courses completed at Western.

3.)    Contact your Graduate Program Coordinator. The MEng to MESc program change form must be completed and submitted to the department for approval.

4.)    Important: the number of terms spent enrolled in the MEng program are counted towards the 6 terms of fundability in the MESc program. Ex. If you transfer to the MESc program after term 2 of the MEng degree you will have 4 terms of fundability remaining in your MESc. 


It is possible to receive credit for courses taken during your MEng studies. The requirements to receive credit for courses are listed in the Program Change Regulations.

 

MESc to Doctoral Program Transfer

Both the ECE Transfer Request and the SGPS Transfer Request Forms must be completed and submitted to the Department. These forms are located on the ECE Forms page.
