The Master of Applied Science in Electrical and Computer Engineeringis a thesis-based program that introduces students to the research methods used in the field of electrical and computer engineering. It builds on specific areas of knowledge gained at the undergraduate level. The Master of Applied Science (MASc) program is intended for students who are interested in pursuing advanced studies and research at the postgraduate level, including the completion of a thesis. Students who want to continue on to a PhD should enroll in the MASc program. Practicing engineers who wish to follow a course-based program should apply to the MEng instead. This degree is primarily for students interested in full-time study.
Bachelor’s degree in engineering or equivalent with high standing.
Proficiency in English. Applicants whose primary language is not English must demonstrate that their knowledge of English is sufficient to pursue graduate studies in their chosen field. Please refer to the Graduate Admission page for further information on the Language Proficiency requirements and exemptions.
In addition to the general admission requirements, the Gina Cody School (GCS) may require applicants to write the Engineering Writing Test (EWT) as a condition of admission to all graduate programs in Engineering and Computer Science. Depending on the result, students may be required to complete remedial English language courses in addition to their program requirements.
Engineering Writing Test (EWT). The Engineering Writing Test examines students’ ability to provide reasoned assessment of a short technical composition in English or French, and their ability to provide a qualitative account of quantitative or graphically presented data. The test is offered a number of times throughout the year. Based on their performance in the test, students may be asked to take remedial courses.
4. An admission offer will not be issued until a supervisor match has been made. Students are encouraged to review the list of faculty members' field of interests and directly contact those with whom you would like to work.
For initial assessment purposes, scanned and uploaded copies of documents are accepted. To finalize a file, once admitted, Concordia University will require official documents.
Priority will be given to those who apply within the official deadlines listed above. Some programs may continue to accept applications after these deadlines. For more information, please contact the department.
Teaching Assistant (TA) assignments are awarded to qualified graduate students (PhD, MASc, MEng). The basic requirements are technical knowledge and good communication skills as demonstrated by past experience and academic record.
