Engineering Design

The M.Eng. Design program emphasizes development of competencies in Design Thinking and innovations methodologies, as well as leadership, collaboration, and management skills to lead diverse teams.

These competencies are combined with advanced technologies to enable design and implementation of solutions which integrate digital reality with the physical world to deliver solutions for daily living or for complex IT or industrial systems.


The following stream are currently offered in the Program:

  • Product Design: Design Thinking approach to the development of products and services.
  • Digital Reality: Design of augmented-, virtual-, and mixed-reality immersive experiences.
  • Smart Systems: Design and integration of AI, robotics, automation, and physical systems
  • Process and Production Systems: engineering design and operations improvement
