Return to Areas of Study Return to: Areas of Study

Master's Degree


The degree may be earned either with a thesis option (M.A.Sc.) or an industrial internship (M.Eng.) to be decided jointly by the candidate, the supervisor, and the chair. A strong baccalaureate degree with an average of at least B (equivalent to a McMaster GPA of 8.0) in engineering, mathematics, or the physical sciences is generally required for admission to the M.A.Sc. program. For the M.Eng. program, an average of at least B- is required.

M.Eng. Degree (Industrial Internship)


Course Requirements


A candidate for the M.Eng. degree (Industrial Internship) is required to complete a minimum of four half courses (the equivalent of two half courses must be at the 700-level). The candidate must attain a grade of at least B- in each of the selected courses. An on-campus project is to be pursued under the supervision of a member of the Department. The subject area is to be chosen in consultation with the Department Chair and the supervising faculty member.

In addition to the required courses and the on-campus project described above, the candidate for the M.Eng. degree (Industrial Internship) is required to complete ENG PHYS 733 . This involves spending approximately four months in an industrial laboratory carrying out an industry-oriented project under the supervision of a suitably qualified staff scientist. The candidate is usually required to undertake some on-campus study in preparation for the industrial project. The Department of Engineering Physics makes arrangements for the industrial project in consultation with the candidate. Subject to the approval of the Department Chair, the requirement for an on-campus project may be replaced by the addition of the equivalent of one more full course.
