McMaster University’s Faculty of Engineering and Mohawk College’s School of Engineering Technology have partnered to establish the Bachelor of Technology degree program in response to the needs of today’s innovation-based organizations.
Our unique “diploma to degree” program is tailor-made for college graduates wishing to upgrade their education and further their careers. All eligible program entrants receive two years’ worth of advanced credit from their previously completed college diploma or university degree. The program is offered in four unique streams:
- Civil Engineering Infrastructure Technology
- Energy Engineering Technologies
- Manufacturing Engineering Technology
- Software Engineering & Technology
A flexible evening and weekend schedule runs for twelve months of the year, giving students the option to work full-time while completing the program. Advanced engineering theory and math subjects, along with a concentration of courses in business and management, prepare students for upward career mobility or further education, including university level master’s and doctoral programs in engineering or business, such as M.Eng., M.B.A., and M.A.Sc. Students of the program have found that with a four-year university degree there is a greater opportunity for promotion to management level positions, as well as a more direct path towards gaining a professional engineering license.
Seneca College graduate, Max Showers, used his advanced diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology to gain admission to the Manufacturing stream. Max graduated from Seneca in 2003 and used the Degree Completion program to upgrade his knowledge. In terms of the adjustment from college to university, Max states, “Expect to see an increase in the amount of time you’ll need to study.” Max’s hard work paid off, and one of his highlights as a McMaster University student included an A+ grade in Mathematics. Max enjoyed the hands on experience he gained in college and, in combination with his Bachelor of Technology Degree, he is a well-rounded employee for the Engineering Technology world.
