Master's Program

The Master’s programs emphasize industry relevant academic research and development. The Master’s degree may be earned either with a thesis option or with a coursework-and-project option to be determined when an offer of admission is made.

There are two routes which a candidate for the Master’s degree can take:

  1. Coursework and thesis programs: M.A.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computational Science and Engineering.

  2. Coursework and project based programs: M.Eng. and M.Sc. in Computational Science and Engineering.

Expected completion time for full-time registered students: Coursework-and-project (16 months), Thesis (24 months).

Ph.D. Program

The objective of the PhD program is to provide candidates with broad multi-disciplinary training in computational science and engineering, in preparation for a career in university-level teaching, academic research or a career in industry. Graduates are expected to have acquired autonomy in conducting research, preparing scholarly publications, and the development and application of novel ideas. These objectives are met through a rigorous combination of course work beyond the Master’s level and independent research that clearly demonstrates innovation and a contribution to the field. The program is designed to provide both a broad knowledge of computational methods and training in basic research. Candidates must demonstrate a broad and sound background by way of a Comprehensive Examination to qualify for this degree. Expected time for completion is 48 months.

Expected completion time for full-time registered students: Thesis (48 months)
