Bachelor's Degree Requirements

To qualify for a Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.) degree, a student must complete a full undergraduate program within nine calendar years of first registration, exclusive of mandatory absences from their program .

A full undergraduate program consists of eight Fall and Winter sessions taken in sequence. To gain credit for a session a student must:
a) satisfy the academic regulations to proceed to the succeeding session as described herein, and
b) not be subsequently required to repeat the session for which credit is to be gained, and
c) achieve a course mark of 50% or greater in every course taken as part of the academic load in a session (Regulation VI-C), and
d) not have the designation of 'standing deferred' or 'incomplete' outstanding for any course in the session (Regulation VI-D).

Master's Degree Requirements

The Master of Applied Science (M.A.Sc.) program includes course work and a research thesis. The program provides students with the opportunity to expand their expertise in a particular research field. The M.A.Sc. program is usually completed within two calendar years. All requirements for the degree must be satisfactorily completed within three calendar years of full-time enrolment from first registration.

The Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) program includes course work, and may include a research project. The program can be completed in one year of full-time study, in two years as an extended full-time student, or in three years on a part-time basis.

The Master of Health Science (M.H.Sc.) program is offered through the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering. The program is designed specifically to produce qualified engineers with expertise in the applied side of health care related biomedical engineering. The program is full-time and consists of course work, internships and a research project, which can be completed in two years.

Doctoral Degree Requirements

The Ph.D. degree program is comprised of course work and a research thesis representing an original investigation of a research topic. Students must pass a qualifying examination and the Ph.D. thesis is reviewed and examined by both the thesis committee and the School of Graduate Studies. The normal program length for the Ph.D. is four years of full-time study; five years for direct-entry.
