    PROGRAM PURPOSE: This program is meant to satisfy the particular needs of students and practicing engineers wishing to extend their studies on a broad basis of coursework and an engineering project.  An M.Eng. is a terminal degree and students in this program may not advance to a Ph.D. program.

     


     

    PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS

    • Credit hours must relate directly to the student's degree program
    • A maximum of 48-credit hours of coursework is allowed in this program.

    PROJECT REPORT/PRESENTATION

    While the project presentation differs from the research thesis in its emphasis on the application of theory, it is similar in scope, span, and rigor.  The weight of work required for the project report or thesis is equal to that required for the Master’s thesis -- the effort involved in this project should be at least the equivalent of six (6) credit hours of coursework.   In general, the project report or thesis takes the form of an exercise in the practical application of knowledge and skill.

    PROJECT REPORT/PRESENTATION DISTRIBUTED TO THE EXAMINATION COMMITTEE SHOULD CONTAIN

    1. the careful definition of a problem
    2. the application of appropriate knowledge and skills to resolve the problem
    3. a report of the results in a manner suitable for evaluation by an Examining Committee

     

    SUBMISSION OF PROJECT REPORT/PRESENTATION TO EXAMINING COMMITTEE

    1. Project report should be distributed to the Examination Committee at least 30-days prior to proposed defense date
      1. Examination Committee members should report their comments, as soon as possible, to the student's Advisor, but may take up to 4-weeks to comment.
        (If individual committee members are prone to delays please calculate this factor into your decision to select a presentation date.)

      3. Not acceptable  
    3. Reports from the Examination Committee will be submitted to the Academic Advisor  
    4. Your Advisor will give you copies of the reports and discuss the results with you.
      1. at this point you should read the reports and note that the Examination Committee may address these points at your presentation, so be prepared to answer
      2. if your advisor feels that these report comments should be incorporated into your report you should begin addressing these comments for your final project report

     

    NOTE: All members of the Examination Committee are expected to attend the final presentation

     

     

    PRESENTATION OF PROJECT REPORT / PRESENTATION TO EXAMINING COMMITTEE

    1.  If the student is approved to give his / her Project Presentation the Examining Committee will be polled to determine a presentation date and time.
    2. The student must be physically present at the time of his/her presentation.  Presentation at-distance is not allowed.
    3. The student must be registered as a graduate student at the University of Manitoba at the time of his/her presentation
    4. INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS:  It is up to the student to make sure that he / she holds the current and correct documents, required by the IRCC, to be an enrolled student in Canada at the time of the Presentation
    5. In order to graduate by the FGS Graduation Deadline Date, plan to make your M.Eng. presentation at least 10-working days prior to the FGS Graduation Deadline Date -- http://umanitoba.ca/faculties/graduate_studies/media/Information_for_Graduands.pdf 

     

     


     

    FINAL SUBMISSION OF PROJECT REPORT 

    No Final Project Report is required by the Faculty of Graduate Studies for the M.Eng. degree, however, your Academic Advisor may require one to determine "PASS" of the project presentation.  The Academic Advisor MUST send an email to the Graduate Student Advisor to confirm that the student has "PASS" of the project presentation.   After your Report on Master of Engineering Project and Report is submitted to FGS they will begin to check your records to make sure you are OK to graduate.

     

     


      

    CONFIRMATION OF ELIGIBILITY TO GRADUATE

    ONCE you have successfully defended and submitted your Final Thesis to M-SPACE you may order a Confirmation of Eligibility To Graduate Letter.
