Is this program for you?

If you believe that intelligent systems comprised of AI applications and components connected via networks (or the cloud) are the future, this is the program for you. You’ll find three unique streams to choose from.

  • Automation and Smart Systems - build your experience with automatic controls, robotics, or data science
  • Automotive - work on automotive vehicles and their systems (e.g. autonomous driving) and forever change human transportation
  • Digital Manufacturing – Work on advanced tools for managing production systems, monitoring their operation, optimizing supply chain and production operations as well as being able to apply machine learning and AI in manufacturing systems.

This program is particularly well suited for applicants with backgrounds in Electrical, Software and Mechatronics Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics, and Automation Systems. Students from other engineering and science disciples who are comfortable with writing solution procedures as software code, and who wish to refocus their careers on automation or data science, are also invited to apply.

If your interests are specific to manufacturing processes and technology, you may also want to look at our Master of Engineering in Manufacturing Engineering program. 

Co-op & Experiential Learning

Co-op is an optional component of the Master of Engineering Systems & Technology program. McMaster established its graduate student co-op program in 2017, seeing it grow rapidly. Employers are quickly embracing it as a mechanism for recruiting talent and expertise.

There are several steps you must complete before you begin applying to co-op positions. Firstly, ensure you enrol in the Graduate Co-op Prep Course ENG 701 in September. You will also need approval from your program chairperson before accepting a co-op placement. Speak with Co-op and Career Services if you have any questions.

Student Projects

Kyle D’mello, Zi Ren Wang, and XuLiang Qi

Program: M. Eng. In System and Technology

Project Name: IoT Hydroponics System

Project Impact: Urban Stalk is an agriculture enterprise focused on the sustainable, local production of food in any setting, even the heart of a busy city. The group’s vertical farming process represents the future of food production. The innovative approach is highly sustainable, and because it is local in nature, substantially reduces transportation costs. 

The team's work in partnership with Urban Stalk focused on an automated hydroponics system that monitored the ideal environment for plant growth, including pH level, water level, air temperature and relative humidity, as well as irrigation control and nutrient solution intake. 

Project Partner: Urban Stalk

Preparing for succes: For Kyle D’mello, he entered the MEST program having had minimal exposure to Industry 4.0 and the automation side of manufacturing and production. The program, which focuses on these areas, introduced Kyle to the manufacturing sector and gave him insights into the emerging technologies being used.

“The courses, even though they are being held online are being taught by very knowledgeable professors who are always willing to help. Furthermore, there is a hands-on component which provides very valuable experience,” says Kyle. 

Kyle is currently in his second term of the MEST program, and preparing for a co-op placement with ArcelorMittal Dofasco, a steel company located in Burlington, Ontario.
