The minimum requirements for the M.A.Sc. are four term-length graduate courses or their equivalent plus a satisfactory thesis successfully defended. One term length senior (400-series) undergraduate course, OR one combined undergraduate/graduate course (also known as a double numbered 400/800 course) may be accepted as the equivalent of a graduate course from any discipline for an M.A.Sc. student provided that
a) the course is approved by the student's supervisor and
b) the student has not received credit for a similar course in their Bachelor's program.
As part of the M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. programs, full-time students are required to take the appropriate seminar course, either MECH 897 or MECH 997.
