General information

The University Network of Excellence in Nuclear Engineering (UNENE) is a Canadian-based alliance of universities, nuclear power utilities, research and regulatory agencies for the support and development of nuclear education, research and development capability in Canadian universities. UNENE was created through the partnership of five Ontario universities including McMaster University, Queen’s University, UOIT, University of Waterloo and Western University.

The UNENE Master of Engineering (MEng) program is designed for the working professional, providing engineers the enhanced knowledge, tools, technology as well as business and management skills necessary to keep them at the forefront of their profession. The program is course-based, consisting of 10 courses, or eight courses and an industrial project. The project is normally co-sponsored by the student's employer and one of the universities.

Courses in the UNENE MEng are offered on alternate weekends, usually over a seven-week period. The program consists of about 40 hours contact time plus 100 hours of homework. Students are formally evaluated through assignments, tests and exams. Courses can also be delivered using distance education tools to accommodate those students working at sites remote from the Greater Toronto Area.
