Future Student Information


The total time from admission to Engineering to graduation with a B.Eng. Management in Engineering Physics is five years. Graduates of the program provide valuable feedback, which helps to maintain the relevance of the undergraduate curriculum to current engineering applications. One of the strengths of the Engineering Physics program is that it is very broadly based and prepares its graduates to pursue a wide range of career paths. All students in the program obtain a background in electrical science, engineering materials, classical and quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, electronics, data acquisition and handling, mathematical physics and numerical analysis. 

This integrated program has the following advantages:

  1. Opportunity for students to explore both their management and technical potential
  2. High rates of employment at graduation
  3. Starting salary premium at graduation
  4. More rapid progression to senior management positions
  5. One year’s credit towards an MBA at McMaster and other universities

In addition the program offers the option of up to 28 months of co-op work experience and opportunities to go on international student exchanges.

The McMaster Engineering and Management Program includes all the learning of a fully accredited engineering degree with the core business learning from a fully accredited business school, plus the integrating courses and experiences which mobilize the synergies of the combination.

Brief Descriptions of Core Courses

Admission Requirements

Admission to Level II Engineering Programs

Admission to Level II Engineering programs requires completion of all non-elective Engineering I courses with a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 4.0. All programs have limited enrolment; should there be more applicants than the limiting number in any program, admission to that program will be based on a points system, computed as the product of the Fall-Winter Average and the number of units taken in the session (a minimum of 31 units will be used in the calculation). Students who do not meet the requirements to proceed to Level II in May will have a Pending flag put on their allocation. The Pending flag will be removed in August if the student completes the requirements over the summer.

In addition, admission to a B.Eng.Mgt. program requires the completion of ECON 1B03 with a minimum grade of 5.0; an interview may also be required.

Students admitted to a B.Eng.Society program are required to submit a statement indicating the educational objectives for the focus electives.

Students seeking admission to the Engineering and Management program, or the Engineering and Society program must first be admitted to the relevant department. Thereafter, they will be considered for admission to one of these two programs.

Co-op and Experiential Learning

As for all engineering disciplines at McMaster, students in our programmes have the opportunity of applying for an industrial internship. If successful, the student typically is employed on industrial placement from the May following his/her third year in the academic programmes and returns to school for Level IV in September of the following year.
