What is Bachelor of Technology – Combined Degree/Diploma?
Walter G Booth School of Engineering Practice and Technology offers the Bachelor of Technology Combined Degree/Diploma program in response to today’s industry needs. Our students go beyond learning from a textbook – they learn from experiential projects in lectures, labs, and paid industry employment through our mandatory 12 months of co-op.
Post-graduate pathways for B.Tech. grads include master’s and doctoral programs in engineering, science, or business. Additional professional and educational pathways are available for your continued learning and success.
Streams of Specialization
Graduates from these 3 streams receive a Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) degree from McMaster University as well as an Ontario advanced diploma in technology and business management certificate from Mohawk College. Additionally, graduates will have received 12 months of paid co-op work experience.
Automotive and Vehicle Engineering Technology
Students learn about the construction, operation, design, and manufacturing of modern vehicles by evaluating current and future automotive propulsion technologies, advanced combustion systems, hybrid powertrains, and alternative fuel vehicles.
Students study in an interdisciplinary field that merges basic science, applied science, and engineering through concepts related to genetic engineering, cell biology, molecular biology, microbiology, analytical instrumentation, bioprocessing, immunology, virology, genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics
Automation Engineering Technology
Students develop knowledge and skills in sensors, instruments, actuators, industrial networks, process control and automation, SCADA, programming, statistical process control, Internet technologies, and the integration of plant floor data with business systems.
Why Bachelor of Technology?
“The McMaster-Mohawk joint curriculum has a great balance of hands-on and in-class learning, which makes each day different and exciting.” – Natalie, Automotive and Vehicle Engineering Technology Student
