MEng Capstone (MEC E 910)

Completion of the capstone project requires submission of a capstone report. Two readers, including a capstone supervisor, must approve the M.Eng. project report. There is no oral defence. 

A capstone project topic and supervisor should be selected once other degree requirements, such as coursework, are substantially completed. 

The sequential procedure for completing the capstone project is outlined below. Importantly, you must be registered in MEC E 910 in the academic term in which you complete and submit the capstone report.


Step 1: Read the MEng Capstone Guidelines

Step 2: Select a project/supervisor(s)

A list of open capstone topics and prospective academic supervisors is shown in tabular form below. A student may also propose a capstone topic directly to a prospective academic supervisor. In the exceptional circumstance that no academic supervisor can be found through either of the above methods, the department chair or associate chair (graduate) may appoint an academic supervisor.

Step 3: MEC E 910 Registration

After a capstone project has been selected, please complete the following registration form: (MEC E 910 Registration form). Once the form is completed, please return it to the MEng Graduate Assistant (contact details below).

Step 4: MEC E 910 Completion

Once you have completed and submitted your capstone report, it will be reviewed and approved by your supervisor(s) and an independent ``second reader,'' selected by your M.Eng. supervisor. Once all necessary revisions have been made, the supervisor and second reader will sign the (MEC E 910 Completion Signature form) indicating formal satisfaction of the capstone project requirements and successful completion of MEC E 910. The signed form must be submitted to the M.Eng. graduate assistant along with a final copy of the capstone report.
