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.

Nuclear Engineering, MASc

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (by subject area)

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 .

Degree requirements

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.

Additional requirements

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.
