- Master of Engineering in Supply Chain Management (MEng-SCM) is more research-focused and is designed for students who wish to continue on in research or pursue a PhD.
All incoming students are initially enrolled for the MASc-SCM degree. Upon admission students can then submit a research proposal and apply for the MEng-SCM degree.
