What will I learn?

The Master of Applied Science (MASc) is a full-time program to pursue advanced studies in the area of Mechatronics. The primary component of the program is the thesis, which reports the results of an independent research investigation or creative design carried out by the student. Candidates must have strong aptitude for research, including strong analytical and practical problem solving skills in multidisciplinary areas including mechanical, electrical, and systems engineering.

This program consists of course work and a thesis for a minimum of 30 units. The courses will normally be selected in consultation with the student's supervisor. At most, three units may be directed studies. Additional courses may be required to correct deficiencies in the student's background. If the subject matter of a required course has been previously completed with graduate credit, the course may not be completed again for credit.
