International Double Degree

As a master of engineering (MEng) student in civil, electrical or computer engineering, you can gain international experience, learn a new language, and earn two master’s degrees simultaneously—one from Ryerson and another from one of our partner universities overseas.

Choose from one of the following programs (all of which are offered in English):

  • Electrical engineering, Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences (HsKA) in Karlsruhe, Germany
  • Civil engineering, Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences (HsKA) in Karlsruhe, Germany
  • Power engineering, Wroclaw University of Technology (WUT) in Wroclaw, Poland

The international double-degree program takes two years of study and requires:

  • The completion of a combination of 8-10 courses total from Ryerson and the partner university (depending on which program you choose to pursue)
  • A jointly supervised master’s project/thesis
  • A foreign language course at the partner university

  • Demonstrate overall success in their studies with a cumulative CGPA of 3.0 or higher and have clear academic standing
  • Be a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident or a protected person
  • Be an Ontario resident
  • Demonstrate academic excellence
