  4. The student must select at least one course that contains a project if not selecting the project course ELEC 898 M. Eng. Project. A list of courses containing a project is maintained by the department.

Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) with Industrial Internship field

The M.Eng. with Industrial Internship field in Electrical and Computer Engineering requires students to take six term-length lecture-based courses, up to two of which can be fourth-year undergraduate courses. In addition, internship students take two term-length internship project courses (ELEC 895 Industrial Internship I and ELEC 896 Industrial Internship II), for a total of eight courses. Students must also take the non-credit seminar course ELEC 891 Seminar.

Further, the courses must be selected as follows:

  1. ELEC 895 Industrial Internship I and ELEC 896 Industrial Internship II;
  2. At least two term-length graduate courses must be courses offered in the Department;
  3. Normally, the remaining lecture-based courses may be chosen from courses listed by the Department, or from courses offered by another department in Queen's University, or from the Royal Military College.

If a student decides not to take ELEC 896 Industrial Internship II, then they must take a total of seven term length lecture-based courses. This situation could arise for example if the duration of the internship job was only 4 months.
