Join us in November for events from programs and faculties.
Join us for a Month at Mac! For the month of November, we are inviting you to join us as we highlight different faculties and undergraduate programs each week.
Faculty and Program advisors will host an assortment of presentations, webinars and workshops, giving you a glimpse of what it is like to study at McMaster. During each spotlight week, you’ll have the opportunity to connect directly with advisors, recruiters and current students to ask questions ranging from admissions, student life and so much more!
One-on-one bookings for the Faculty or Program being featured will open at the beginning of each spotlight week. Below is a snapshot of the schedule for November.
Experience an education that represents far more than a collection of facts, concepts and answers. Our award-winning professors and researchers value innovative teaching, a lifelong passion for learning, and working at the frontiers of knowledge.
The Faculty of Science offers seven Level I Programs.
Four Level I Gateway Programs: Chemical & Physical Science, Environmental & Earth Science, Life Science and, Mathematics & Statistics. Whether you know exactly what area of science you are interested in or are still undecided, the structure of our four Level I Gateway programs will provide you with a range of Level II program options.
Three Direct Entry Programs: Honours Integrated Science, Honours Kinesiology and, Medical Radiation Sciences. In contrast to the Level I Gateway Programs, students enter directly into these programs and the first-year curriculum is a set of prescribed, required courses that must be completed before advancing to level II of the program.
We invite you to explore Science at McMaster.
The Arts & Science Program is unique in offering an extensive integrated core curriculum, which bridges the divide between the arts and the sciences and also between academic study and social engagement. The majority of its graduates go on to graduate or professional schools in a wide variety of fields.

Bachelor of Technology: The BTech program positions you to be at the forefront of change in engineering industries. With a unique blend of theory and practice, students spend more than 750 hours in lab settings applying engineering principles to develop innovative technical solutions. Guided by industry advisory committees and taught by professors with relevant experience, each of the three BTech streams is geared to tackle technological change head-on.
Computer Science: The Honours Computer Science is a direct-entry four-year program where students learn programming, software design, systems and theoretical foundations. In five practice and experience courses, the emphasis at McMaster is on lab-based exploration and discovery, including expanded coverage of practical topics such as profiling and tuning, and foundational topics such as operating systems and compilers.
Engineering 1: McMaster Engineers are empowered to be difference makers. We will teach you to be the engineer who sees only solutions, not problems. With a focus on experiential, collaborative and project-based learning, students take real problems in society and learn the technical and teamwork skills to solve them. In first year, you’ll gain a broad exposure to engineering before choosing a specialization for second year and beyond.
Integrated Biomedical Engineering & Health Sciences: We’ve fused the best of our top-ranked health sciences and engineering programs to deliver a unique project-based learning experience that is second to none. In the iBioMed program, you’ll be working to solve real-life projects right from day one. In dedicated design studio locations, you’ll learn to work in teams to define problems, pitch ideas, build prototypes and test products with real clients.
