The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto offers a graduate program leading to the degree of a Master of Engineering (MEng).


About this Degree

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto covers a diverse range of research areas in the structure, processing and characterization of metal alloys, advanced ceramic coatings, semiconductor devices, nanocomposites and biomaterials. Also, there is a strong emphasis on simulation and computational modelling.

Typical subjects in chemical metallurgy involve a study of the equilibria existing during the reduction of oxides with carbon and metals, properties of iron and steelmaking slags, kinetics of high-temperature reactions, mathematical modelling of metallurgical processes, process metallurgy, and hydrometallurgy. Typical physical metallurgy and materials science subjects deal with the structure and properties of metallic, ceramic, and polymeric materials in such fields as plastic deformation, surface properties, electron microscopy, biomaterials, nuclear materials, nanocomposites, metallic glasses, corrosion, fatigue, welding and bonding, phase transformations and solidification.

These studies are all related to the general problem of understanding structure-property-processing relationships in materials, the design of advanced materials and devices, and developing highly-efficient, environmentally-responsible materials processing and manufacturing that considers life cycle analysis and material recycling.

Programme Structure

  • A project may be substituted for 1.5 FCEs (3 half courses). Students enrolled in this option work in consultation with a professor who acts as advisor for the project undertaken. An oral presentation of the project may be required.
  • Students normally complete the requirements in three sessions (one year).
  • Students have the option of completing an emphasis in Advanced Manufacturing; Advanced Soft Materials; Advanced Water Technologies; Analytics; Biomanufacturing; Engineering and Globalization; Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Innovation and Technology in Engineering (ELITE); Forensic Engineering; or Sustainable Energy as part of their degree program. Please see details in the Materials Science and Engineering MASc, MEng, PhD Emphases section.
