Tuition and Fees

Please refer to the Tuition + Fees page on the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies office's website. Both the MASc and PhD programs are research-based programs and therefore fall under "regular" tuition (pay per term). The MEng program falls under the "specialty program" tuition (pay per unit).
