Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Automotive Engineering, MASc


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (by faculty)

Degree requirements for the Master of Applied Science (MASc) in Automotive Engineering are listed below. For general program information, admission requirements, graduate faculty lists and/or details on part-time options, see Automotive Engineering .

Degree requirements


The main objective of the MASc program in Automotive Engineering is to prepare students for careers in research, development and advanced engineering. Graduates of the program can work as engineers in research and development in the automotive sector, companies focused in advanced technology, government agencies or other areas. They are also well prepared to continue their education and pursue a PhD degree. The objectives of the MASc program are achieved through a combination of course work, supervised research, a research seminar and a research thesis.

Students must complete five courses for a total of 15 credits and a thesis worth 15 credits for the MASc program in Automotive Engineering. The course ENGR 5300G - Automotive Engineering  is a required course for all Automotive Engineering graduate students. It gives an advanced overview of the automobile as an integrated system.

Students must also select at least two additional courses from the group of ENGR 53xxG courses (focusing on automotive engineering), plus remaining electives from the concentration areas of 50xxG, 51xxG, 52xxG, 56xxG, 57xxG, 58xxG and/or 59xxG courses. In addition to these five graduate courses, students must successfully complete ENGR 5003G - MASc Seminar  and ENGR 5001G - MASc Thesis .

Undergraduate courses


In addition to the required graduate courses, students may take only one senior year undergraduate engineering course (i.e., with prefix ENGR 4xxxU) in lieu of a graduate-level course, provided they have not already taken a similar course during their undergraduate degree and the course is approved by both the student’s supervisor and the graduate program director.

Courses outside of the program


Courses in other graduate programs at UOIT may be taken provided that students have not taken similar courses during their undergraduate or master’s degrees and the courses are approved by the graduate program director. At least half of a student’s courses must be within their program in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. Students who wish to take courses outside of their program must gain approval from the graduate program director. Students who are uncertain about the academic background needed for a graduate course should consult the course instructor before registering for the course.

Course listing


Courses are subdivided into an automotive core area (ENGR 53xxG) and specific concentration areas of energy and thermofluids (ENGR 51xxG), mechatronics and manufacturing (ENGR 52xxG), communications and signal processing (ENGR 56xxG), software (ENGR 57xxG) and electronics and control systems (ENGR 58xxG, ENGR 59xxG).

The following list shows all courses relevant to the Automotive Engineering graduate programs:

Note:


A graduate course in one of the approved concentration areas for automotive engineering may be substituted for ENGR 53xxG, subject to the approval of the graduate program director. Students may replace ENGR 5310G - Advanced Vehicle Dynamics  by ENGR 5240G - Advanced Dynamics  or replace ENGR 5340G - Automotive Noise, Vibrations and Harshness  by ENGR 5242G - Advanced Vibrations , subject to the approval of the course instructor. The mechanical-focused project topic in ENGR 5240G /ENGR 5242G  is replaced by an automotive-focused project in ENGR 5310G /ENGR 5340G , respectively.
