The program consists of a minimum of three consecutive terms in which the candidate is required to successfully complete six graduate half courses (or equivalent), which consist of the courses listed below and at least three other 700-level courses from a list approved by the department, as well as a project. The project consists of designing a real Mechatronics System including software, hardware components, specification, documentation and testing reports. The outcome should be documented in a project report.
Students in the Mechatronics Engineering program at McMaster University may apply for an Advanced Credit Option after their third year of study. The Advanced Credit Option is open to graduates who have maintained a minimum average of B in each year of the B. Eng. program in Mechatronics Engineering at McMaster University and were allowed to take two 600-level courses (listed below) during their fourth undergraduate year for advanced graduate credit.
