Program information

The Master of Applied Science (MASc) and Master of Engineering (MEng) programs in Automotive Engineering provide students with a detailed understanding of advanced technologies and processes related to automotive systems. These programs allow students to study all of the main areas associated with automotive systems. These areas include scientific principles, analysis techniques and design methodologies. The programs are also designed to provide students with the broad and advanced education necessary for productive careers in the public or private sectors, as well as in academia. Students develop skills necessary for clear communication and responsible teamwork and to inspire professional attitudes and ethics. This prepares them for modern work environments and lifelong learning.

Students with undergraduate degrees in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, or other fields of engineering or science may apply to the Automotive Engineering graduate programs. The multidisciplinary nature of automotive systems, ranging from manufacturing and powertrains to electrical power/control systems and others, provides opportunities for students to gain broad exposure to various disciplines at an advanced graduate level.

Admission requirements

In addition to the general admission requirements for graduate studies at UOIT , applicants must meet the following program-specific requirements.

MASc and MEng in Automotive Engineering
  • Completion of an undergraduate engineering degree in a relevant field from an accredited engineering program at a Canadian university, or its equivalent from a recognized institution.
  • Overall academic standing of at least a B (GPA: 3.0 on a 4.3 scale), with a minimum B in the last two full-time years (four semesters) of undergraduate work or equivalent. B+ is preferred for MASc applicants.

Applicants must possess maturity and self-motivation. Close technical contact with a faculty member is an essential part of graduate education in engineering. Prior to being accepted into the program, MASc applicants must find a professor who specializes in their desired area of research and who is willing to act as a supervisor. MEng applicants who select the MEng-Project option must also find a professor who is willing to act as a project supervisor. In the event the MEng-Project applicant cannot find a project supervisor, the applicant may be considered for admission into the MEng-Course option.

Part-time studies

To facilitate access to all potential students, part-time studies are permitted. Engineers in local industries and government agencies, for example, may wish to access the MEng through part-time studies.
