What our MEng students say?

“MEng studies prepared me well for pursing a Ph.D. degree. I was able to refresh my analytical toolbox, taking computation and math courses relevant to my field of research. After 6 years in the industry, the MEng program was a great way to onboard back into academia. I could also see it working well the other way around, preparing students for industry with higher level courses and projects.”

– Charlie Katrycz | Ph.D. Candidate
