MEng Program Information

MEng Proposed Program Form

The MEng proposed program form is a mandatory requirement of all MEng students, to be completed by the first month of the first term of study. This form is a plan of all the courses a student intends to take during their MEng degree. If you choose to deviate from your plan, please resubmit the Proposed Program Form. For the list of approved courses for each stream of study please see the links at the top of this page.

MEng Proposed Program Form

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:

All requests must be made 6 weeks prior to the end of a term/beginning of a new term

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.

Continuous Registration

Students enrolled in the MEng program MUST register in every term from initial registration until all degree requirements are complete.  If unable to register, the student may apply for a Leave of Absence.  

Please note: approval of a Leave of Absence request is not guaranteed and subject to the approval of the ECE Graduate Chair and the School of graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.  Documentation supporting the request is required and must be submitted to the ECE Graduate Office. Please allow 4-6 weeks for your request to be processed.  

All Graduate Students in ECE must maintain a cumulative average of at least 70% calculated each term over all courses taken for credit, with no grade less than 60%. In the case of failing grades given for scholastic offences, only the Vice-Provost (Graduate and Post Doctoral Studies) can withdraw a student.

Applying to Graduate

The University holds regular Convocation ceremonies in the Spring (June) and in the Fall (October) of each year and an In Absentia convocation in February. Degree completion, for purposes of Convocation, requires the following:

  • Program's submission to the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies of grades for all course requirements.

  • Acceptance by the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies of the final submission of the thesis (if applicable).

  • Program's notification to the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies indicating degree completion.

If you are in the final term of your program, you are required to apply to graduate via the Student Center. Students' application for graduation may only occur during the term in which they intend to complete the requirements of their degree. Applications must be submitted prior to the end of that term to ensure eligibility.
To apply, access the Student Center. Select "Apply for Graduation" within the My Academics section and follow the instructions to complete the process.

 

Scholastic Integrity

Graduate Students in the ECE Department are expected to meet and uphold Western University's standards of Academic Integrity.
