M.Sc ELEC

The Masters course is a research-based degree that involves one year full-time of papers and one year full-time of research writing an M.Sc thesis. With a four-year undergraduate degree is it possible to complete the M.Sc by thesis only.

Entry Requirements

Entry into the M.Sc programme requires a first degree in science (B.Sc.) or engineering. This degree should include:

  • Some papers at 300-level in one of Electronics, Mathematics or Physics.
  • Mathematics and Computer Science at 200-level or higher is advantageous but not essential.

Graduates with a four-year undergraduate degree (Honours, Postgraduate Diploma, etc) in a related field may be allowed direct entry into the thesis year.

Course Overview

The M.Sc. extends over two years and consists of the following:

  • A thesis on a topic approved by the Head of the Department of Physics.
  • ELEC 495, and 300- or 400-level ELEC or PHSI papers worth at least 108 points of which at least 72 points must be chosen from ELEC 353, ELEC 354, ELEC 357, ELEC 358, ELEC 401, ELEC 402, ELEC 403, ELEC 404, PHSI 368, PHSI 461, with no more than 36 points at 300-level.

With the approval of the Head of the Department of Physics, COSC, INFO or MATH papers worth at least as many points may be substituted for ELEC papers worth up to 36 points.

Graduates who require a part-time course ending in M.Sc. can follow a part-time Dip. Sci. with a part-time M.Sc.. The maximum time allowed for an M.Sc. is four years.
