The Master’s programs emphasize industry-relevant academic research and development. The Master’s degree may be earned either with a thesis option or with a coursework-and-project option to be determined when an offer of admission is made.
A candidate for the Master's degree can take two routes:
- Coursework-and-thesis programs: M.A.Sc. or M.Sc. in Computational Science and Engineering.
- Coursework-and-project based programs: M.Eng. or M.Sc. in Computational Science and Engineering.
Note: Candidates whose supervisors are in the Faculty of Engineering will receive an M.A.Sc or M.Eng. depending on their program; those whose supervisors are in the Faculty of Science or the deGroote School of Business will receive an M.Sc.
Coursework-and-project (16 months), Thesis (24 months).
The objective of the PhD program is to provide candidates with broad multi-disciplinary training in computational science and engineering, in preparation for a career in industry or academia. Graduates are expected to be capable of independently conducting research, developing and applying novel ideas, and preparing scholarly publications. These objectives are met through a rigorous combination of course work beyond the Master’s level and independent research that clearly demonstrates innovation and a contribution to the field. The program provides both a broad knowledge of computational methods and training in basic research. Candidates must demonstrate a broad and sound background by way of a Comprehensive Examination to qualify for this degree.
Thesis (48 months).
