Degree requirements for the Master of Applied Science (MASc) in Nuclear Engineering are listed below. For general program information, admission requirements, graduate faculty lists and/or details on part-time options, see Nuclear Engineering and Technology .
The objective of the MASc program is to prepare students for a career as engineers in fields that require specialized knowledge and skills. It is expected that graduates of the program will be able to work as engineers in industry, companies and government agencies with strong research and development programs or to continue their education by pursuing a PhD degree. The objective of the MASc program is 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, a non-credit seminar course and a thesis worth 15 credits. MASc students must defend their research thesis in front of an examining committee.
Students may take no more than one third of their courses from the undergraduate courses listed or other 4000-level courses specifically approved by the graduate program director, provided the students did not take similar courses during their undergraduate degree programs.
Students must take at least half of their graduate courses from the list of NUCL 5000-level graduate courses. Courses not listed and offered by other faculties at UOIT or other universities can only be taken for credit if first approved by the graduate program director.
Courses are offered on the basis of demand with the expectation that courses will be offered at a minimum of once every two years.
