BTech Manufacturing – Co-op & Experiential Learning
Gaining relevant co-op experience is an essential part of earning a B.Tech. degree. This required program 8 month co-op component will allow students to gain valuable work experience and career connections.
While support and guidance is available through the Engineering Co-op and Career Services to assist students with searching for jobs, resume writing and interviewing skills, it is ultimately the responsibility of the student to satisfy the co-op program requirement.
Students who have completed college work terms or who have work experience in a related field can be assessed for a waiver for the co-op requirement.

BTech Manufacturing – PEO Requirements
The Professional Engineers of Ontario (PEO) recently announced new application regulations for the P.Eng. designation coming into effect on July 1, 2023. The new rules exclude McMaster B.Tech. graduates from the application process. McMaster Engineering is working with the PEO in an attempt to maintain the previously approved pathways for our students described below. Please check back for updates. We apologize for any concerns and thank you for your patience.
Your Pathway to PEng Licensing:
The following requirements were outlined by the Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) to satisfy the academic requirements for a Professional Engineering license as a Manufacturing Engineer.
