Master’s Degree

A candidate for the Master’s degree may proceed by one of three routes: the Research Program (M.A.Sc.), the course and project program (M. Eng.) or the M. Eng. in Electrical and Biomedical Engineering.

M. Eng. Degree

Required Courses

A candidate is required to complete successfully a program of seven graduate half courses (or equivalent), of which at least five must be 700-level and up to two 600-level courses approved by the department; these courses may be taken on a part-time basis. Two of these 600-level courses can be taken in the final undergraduate year at McMaster for graduate credit.

General Requirements

Candidates for the degrees of M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. must present a seminar on a topic approved by the Department at least once during the course of their programs. Grading will be restricted to Pass/Fail. The thesis or report submitted by the candidate must be defended orally at the conclusion of the study. All M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. graduate students are required to register ECE 790 Graduate Poster Seminars in Electrical and Computer Engineering . M. Eng. students registering for ECE 701 , with the exception of those registered in the combined B. Eng./M. Eng. Biomedical Engineering program, must register for ECE 790  as well.
