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 successfully complete a program of seven graduate half courses (or equivalent), of which at least four must be 700-level courses within ECE.  The three remaining courses may be taken as 700-level courses outside of ECE and/or up to two 600-level courses within ECE with prior approval approval by the department.  Up to two 600-level ECE courses can be taken in the final undergraduate year at McMaster for graduate credit. All courses toward the M.Eng. degree in ECE may be taken on a part-time basis.

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 Communication Skills for Graduate Research 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.
