Master of Applied Science

This program includes a foundation of five graduate courses along with a research thesis that is closely supervised by a professor.  The program includes a guaranteed funding package for 20 months.  Many projects involve industrial partnerships and networking opportunities, project management experience, and collaboration with leading experts. The MASc is an entry point to PhD programs, but also serves as an excellent standalone professional degree.

Program Requirements

Each student, in consultation with their supervisor, establishes the distribution of time between course work and thesis project at the beginning of their program.

Students must normally complete a minimum of 2.5 full-course equivalents (five half-courses) and a thesis.  Students with academic backgrounds that require further preparation may be required to complete more courses.  Students must consult their supervisor for guidance in specific course selection.

Program Length

The MASc is offered only on a full-time basis.

Students will typically take 20 to 24 months to complete the program.
