The Master of Applied Science in Quality Systems Engineering has two main objectives. First, to provide students with the skills and technical expertise needed to design, analyze, implement and manage quality systems. Second, to maximize students' potential as researchers in the fields of quality systems, lean engineering and supply chain management. Those enrolled in the program will engage in applied research and coursework, examining existing theories and methods that currently influence the quality of systems, services, products and processes.
Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Building Engineering, Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Software Engineering, Computer Science, or anAny engineering or science discipline provided that the student has the appropriate background.
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.
Fully-qualified candidates are required to complete a minimum of 45 credits.
