Future Students – Programs

The Faculty of Engineering offers four unique undergraduate programs.

Expandable List

The W Booth School of Engineering Practice and Technology offers the Bachelor of Technology Combined Degree/Diploma Program and Degree Completion Program in response to industry needs.

Combined Degree/Diploma Program – for Graduating Secondary School Students

In the B.Tech. program, students enter the first year of a four year degree in one of three disciplines:

Automotive and Vehicle Engineering Technology


Automation Engineering Technology

Graduates earn a Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) degree from McMaster University and an Ontario advanced diploma in technology and business management certificate from Mohawk College.

Co-op is mandatory for B.Tech. students.

Degree Completion Program – for College Graduates

This unique “diploma to degree” program is tailor-made for college graduates wishing to upgrade their education and further their careers. All eligible program entrants receive two years of advanced credit from their previously completed college diploma or university degree. The disciplines offered are:

Civil Engineering Infrastructure Technology

Power & Energy Engineering Technology

Manufacturing Engineering Technology

Software Engineering Technology

Technology Certificate – for Technologists in the Industry

Many technologists find, after working in the industry for a few years, that they need additional education and training in order to be more effective in their positions and to advance professionally. These additional needs are concerned with both general leadership and supervision skills (i.e. management) and advanced technical knowledge and skills. If you would like to supplement your career with additional education but do not want to upgrade to a degree, the diploma or certificate program is for you!

The Honours Computer Science program offers courses designed to develop students into highly knowledgeable and skilled systems analysts, database specialists, software developers, and system administrators.

The new Computer Science curriculum takes experiential learning to the next level. In five practice and experience courses, the emphasis will shift from lectures to lab-based exploration and discovery, including expanded coverage of practical topics. These new courses are in addition to the final year thesis and optional Software Entrepreneurship projects that are chosen and developed by students.

Co-op is an option you can add to your degree.

McMaster’s undergraduate Engineering program, with a common first year, allows students to explore all of our degree path options before choosing a focus discipline.

During McMaster’s common first-year program, known as Engineering 1, students develop an understanding of all the engineering disciplines and gain a solid foundation in math and science. It also positions students to develop a broad personal network of peers before moving into an area of specialization.

Beyond First Year

After successful completion of your first year in Engineering, students select from one of the multiple programs offered by the Faculty as well as the option of adding two options to your degree: Management or Society.

At McMaster University, we’re transforming healthcare challenges into a new learning experience with the Integrated Biomedical Engineering & Health Sciences (iBioMed) program. We’re bringing together the best of our top-ranked health sciences and engineering programs into a hands-on, project-based program with a strong focus on entrepreneurship and learning to solve real-world problems by doing.

The iBioMed program will give students a strong foundation in both engineering and health sciences. Students will have a common first year before choosing to specialize in either health sciences or engineering in their second year.

Co-op is an option you can add to your degree.
