Program overview

The Master of Applied Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering is 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.
