General information

The University Network of Excellence in Nuclear Engineering (UNENE) Graduate Diploma in Nuclear Engineering is offered jointly between UOIT and McMaster University. The graduate diploma will allow students to broaden their knowledge and enhance their core skills without the commitment of a full master’s degree. Only four courses are required for the graduate diploma, as opposed to the 10 required in the UNENE Master of Engineering (MEng) program. Courses will be offered using the same model as the MEng -- four alternate weekends with the option for distance education.

Admission requirements

UNENE requires an honours or four-year degree in engineering, science or mathematics, and a B average (GPA: 3.0 on a 4.3 scale or 73 to 76 per cent) or better. UNENE also considers any relevant work or research history. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance.
