Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission Requirements for Master’s Degree
The University requires, as the major indicator of ability to complete a Master’s program
successfully, the holding of an Honours bachelor’s degree with at least a B- average in the final year in all courses in the discipline, or relating to the discipline, in which the applicant proposes to do graduate work. Two letters of recommendation are also required.

Admission Requirements for Ph.D. Degree
Applicants may be admitted to a regular Ph.D. program at one of three stages in their academic work. First, entry after completion of a Master’s program. Second, admission to Ph.D. studies from a Master’s program at McMaster without completing the Master’s degree. And third, in exceptional cases, admission may be directly from a bachelor’s degree.
1. For applicants who hold a Master’s degree, the primary requirements are distinction in their previous graduate work (equivalent to at least a McMaster B+), and strong letters of
reference.
2. Students enrolled in a Master’s program at McMaster University may be transferred to the
Ph.D. program prior to completion of the Master’s degree upon recommendation by the departmental unit.
3. In certain programs, applicants with a Bachelors degree only, may be admitted directly to Ph.D. studies. Such students must show sufficient promise, including at least an A average.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Entrance Requirements for Non-Residents and International Students
Degrees and grades from foreign universities are evaluated for their equivalency to McMaster’s. In recognition of the changes taking place in the structure of university education as a consequence of the Bologna Accord, three-year, first-cycle degrees that meet the criteria of the “Framework for Qualifications of the European Higher Education Area” will be accepted in place of a four-year Honours degree. The equivalent of at least a B- average. A Diploma Supplement should accompany the official transcript.

Applicants whose native language is not English will be required to furnish evidence of their
proficiency in the use of the English language. Students taking the IELTS are required to achieve a minimum score of 6.5 with a minimum score of 5.5 in each category. For TOEFL, a minimum score of 80 is required though each department sets its own specific requirements which can be much higher.

Residency Requirements

Please refer to the information under Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering above.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Additional Financial Aid Information
The University normally provides four types of financial support to full-time students. They are employment income, graduate/department or research scholarships, internal scholarships and bursaries, and external awards tenable at the university. A student’s letter of offer or award letter from the University will include all details of financial support.

The University provides graduate scholarship awards to most regular graduate students in Ph.D. programs and in many Master’s thesis programs. These students must be full-time. Such scholarships are awarded annually. A Ph.D. student is normally eligible for his/her first four years. Students in Master’s programs are usually supported for their first three to six terms depending on the department. Subsequent support is at the department or graduate program’s discretion, unless the offer of admission guarantees otherwise.

Teaching Assistantships (TA) and contract employment income are offered to many graduate students registered in full-time programs. The award of a TA may vary but should not exceed 10 hours per week, plus three hours of training per term.

Engineering Physics

Semiconductor nanostructures for photovoltaics and photodetectors: Our current work principally focuses on the growth and characterization of semiconductor materials, and their application in solar cells (photovoltaics), photodetectors, light sources, sensors, quantum information processing, and other optoelectronic devices. Recently, our focus has been on the growth, characterization, and device applications of semiconductor nanowires. We have a large effort to develop third generation solar cells.
Development of Photonic Devices: Our current research is focusing on development of lasers and optical sensors for applications including laser display, environment monitoring, water treatment, and remote medicine. Students involved in the group will learn design, fabrication, characterization, and probably field test of the developed devices.
Evaluation of proliferation resistance in CANDU nuclear fuel cycle: This is a research on the desk. The proliferation resistance in once through uranium, once through thorium-uranium, once through thorium-plutonium, recycled thorium-uranium and recycled thorium-plutonium CANDU nuclear fuel cycle is investigated. Especially, the proliferation resistance in reprocessing process and waste management process is evaluated, and will be integrated into the safety and security assessment of waste management.
Speciation and sorption of neptunium in brine: Speciation and sorption behavior of tetra-valent and penta-valent neptunium in brine are studied. In order to discuss the sorption mechanism, pH, ionic strength, Na/Ca ratio and Npconcentration dependence of sorption will be investigated, and the sorption model will be developed. Furthermore, sorption of several elements such as palladium which are key fission products in safety assessment of used nuclear fuel management is also studied. In the collaboration with Japan Atomic Energy Agency, the speciation and sorption of thorium, uranium or plutonium are studied. In the collaboration with Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, the sortion modeling with DFT theory is discussed.
Fabrication and Characterization of Nanostructures: (a) Silicon Nano-crystals - a major focus of the thin film group has been the exploration and description of the formation of silicon nano-crystals in silicon-based matrices, produced by post-deposition annealing of thin films grown by ECR-PECVD or inductively coupled plasma (ICP) CVD. Nano-structured silicon shows substantial promise as quantum confinement effects make luminescence possible, which serves as the foundation of the rapidly emerging field of silicon photonics.
(b) Rare-earth-doped structures - we have demonstrated very high, optically active concentrations of Tb and Ce by using in-situ doping processes, leading to strong emission in the green and blue, respectively. We have also shown that co-doped structures allow tunability of the emission wavelength, which is exciting from a practical perspective as it provides the potential for the generation of white light. A detailed discussion of the application of this technology to the generation of white light was published as Chapter 17 of Silicon Nanocrystals: Fundamentals, Synthesis and Applications, L. Pavesi and R. Turan (eds.), Wiley-VCH 2010.
(c) Luminescent down-shifting layers " work in collaboration with Kleiman’s and Preston’s groups at McMaster has focussed on the utilization of rare earth doped silicon nano structures as down shifting layers in solar cell architectures. Early results demonstrate the viability of the concept both, for silicon-based and CdTe-based solar cells.
(d) X-ray absorption studies at the CLS synchrotron facility - a more and more important aspect of our work is the application of synchrotron-based techniques to the investigation of the luminescence mechanisms in rare earth doped, silicon-based structures. Work at the Canadian Light Source synchrotron facility has provided critical information on the luminescence mechanisms and the incorporation characteristics of rare earths in various Si-based matrices and has provided evidence that luminescence from these materials is correlated with the excitation of O-related energy states. In order to optimize the luminescence from such materials it is, therefore, necessary to consider the local bonding environment of the RE-ions and specific details of electronic states associated with the host matrix.

Defect Characterization by Positron Annihilation Spectroscopy (PAS): The McMaster Positron Laboratory is one of only three of its kind in Canada and very few in all of North America. Our work is concerned with the characterization of defect structures " principally through positron lifetime and Doppler-broadening spectroscopy - in materials utilized in the development and fabrication of electronic and photonic devices. In an international, NATO-funded collaboration, my group demonstrated the sensitivity of PAS to grain boundaries and phase segregation in complex, Ba-based columbite and perovskite structures. Such defects are critical to the performance of these materials as low-loss dielectrics for microwave applications.
In 2009, we were awarded funding through the Canada Foundation of Innovation (CFI) and the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation (MRI) to establish the McMaster Intense Positron Beam Facility (MIPBF), including the design and construction of one of the world’s most intense sources of positrons. The MIPBF will be unique in Canada, one of only a few operating worldwide, and is made possible through a partnership between the internationally recognized, Ontario-based positron teams at McMaster, Western, and York, and the researchers and staff of the McMaster Nuclear Reactor (MNR). The MIPBF infrastructure will include two experimental stations dedicated to materials research and thus, serve as a unique tool to meet the current and future demands for research in and characterization of advanced materials. The estimated completion date of MIPBF is late 2015.
Organic Light Emitting Structures and Devices: Over the past three years, we have been collaborating with W.Y. Kim’s group at Hoseo University in South Korea to work on the development and characterization of novel organic materials architectures for blue and white OLEDs. R. Wood, one of my former PhD students contributed substantially to a spectroscopic study of white OLEDs and B.M. Lee, one of my current PhD students, designed and fabricated blue OLEDs with double emitting layers which are doped with individual fluorescent and phosphorescent emitters. By controlling the phosphorescent doping profile, we improved the color coordinates, one of the most important parameters for practical applications.
Development of fully integrated micro/nanosystems for point-of-care diagnostic: In order to bring disease diagnostics, treatment selection, and treatment monitoring to the point-of-need, there is a need for easy-to-use and inexpensive handheld platforms for analysing patient samples. For this purpose, we are developing new functional materials for releasing, extracting, concentrating, and detecting cellular materials. Our research group is focused on developing an all electrical chip with integrated hierarchical electrodes and nanostructured electromagnets for addressing the requirement of these diagnostic systems such as ultra-sensitivity, specificity, low power operation, rapid sample-to-answer time, automation, miniaturization, and low cost. The following specific projects are designed under this research program:
• Development of rapid prototyping methods for creating multi-scale electrodes
• Development of multi-scale electrodes for on-chip bacterial lysis
• Development of on-chip microelectromagnets for DNA capture and concentration
• Development of mutli-scale surfaces for concentrating DNA within microfluidic systems

In-situ electron microscopy study of electrodeposition processes: Electrodeposition is a method commonly used for inexpensive fabrication of nanomaterials. Materials tunability can be achieved through controlling parameters such as the applied potential, solution chemistry, and substrate properties. The majority of methods, used to date, for observing electrodeposited films have been ex-situ, which rely on observing the fabricated materials after they are created. Here we will use an in-situ method, where an electrically-biased liquid cell is used inside a transmission electron microscope to observe " in real-time, with nanoscale resolution, and in liquid solutions " the growth of nanoparticles on electrode surfaces.

Organic optoelectronic materials and devices: Organic optoelectronic (OLED/OPV) electrode functionalization with reverse micelle deposited nanoparticles; light management and electrical modification for OLEDs/OPVs using nanoparticles; interfacial degradation of organic optoelectronic devices; morphological control of organic thin films; modelling of organic molecule morphology using spatial statistics and hard core Monte Carlo simulations; and interfacial adhesion measurement techniques for organic devices

Centre for the Effective Design of Structures

Masonry: Materials, Design and Construction.
This long standing area of strength and of extensive industrial collaboration is being expanded to provide leadership and a unique ability to assist the masonry industry. Targeted educational efforts and practical application of the results of research are progressing.

Earthquake Engineering.
McMaster's historical strength in this area, which was reduced through recent retirements, is being re-established. The increased importance of earthquake loading in design signifies the continuing importance of research and education in this area.

Investigation and Remediation of Structures.
Canada's built infrastructure is aging and has reached the point that repair or replacement is a growing requirement. Methods to investigate the condition of structures and to analyze current conditions and retrofitted conditions are required. This includes upgrade and / or repair of the building envelope. In addition, retrofit techniques need to be developed and refined for effective strengthening and development of effective resistance to seismic forces.

Enhanced Use of New and Under-Utilized Materials
Construction is a very traditional area making it difficult for new materials to gain market acceptance. Plastics, fibre reinforcement, and new composites are examples of emerging new materials. In addition, some materials that have existed for some time have potential that has only been partially developed. Over the long term, this focus area is likely to become the largest area of collaboration with industry.

McMaster Centre for Software Certification (McSCert)

The Centre for Software Certification was established at McMaster University in 2008. Its objective is to improve the practice of software engineering applied to critical systems involving software. Its research is into what kinds of evidence, based on scientific notions of measurement, can be obtained from software, and how different kinds of evidence may be combined. This research is partly theoretical, but also practical: the Centre works with industries involved in developing critical, software-intensive systems on their practical problems.

McMaster Institute for Automotive Research and Technology (MacAUTO)

he University’s numerous automotive-related research institutes and centres work with industry, government and academic partners in developing and commercializing new technologies and materials that will ensure the global competitiveness of Canada’s auto industry. MacAUTO is also educating a new generation of professionals ideally suited to understanding real-world issues and implementing innovative solutions.

McMaster Institute for Energy Studies (MIES)

Conservation and Energy Modeling: Currently MIES is involved in energy demand analysis and policy evaluation work with three major research themes: energy market behaviour; social and economic/demographic issues; and energy production in a sustainable environment.

Fuel Cells: The Fuel Cell research forms an integrating bridge between the solar and wind energy technologies because these energy sources are inherently intermittent and require either energy storage or back-up systems in order to function as reliable providers of electricity to the grid.

Nuclear Energy: As a result of recent decisions, Nuclear Power will play an important role in electricity generation in Canada for decades into the future.

Solar Energy: Photovoltaic (PV) energy, the direct conversion of sunlight into electricity, can potentially supply a significant portion of Canada’s rapidly growing demand for electricity with minimal environmental consequences.

Supercapacitors: Electrochemical supercapacitors (ES) are urgently needed as components in many advanced power systems requiring high power density. A new wave of interest in electrochemical supercapacitors is related to the development of electric and fuel cell vehicles.

Wind Energy: Wind Energy is the fastest growing renewable energy source in Canada. In 2006, installed wind capacity exceeded 1,000 MW making Canada the 12th largest country in wind energy.
