Why B.Tech at McMaster?
The Bachelor of Technology program offers a fresh approach to education for the dynamic world of engineering. Promoting “Learning In 3D,” we incorporate Theory, Practice and Experience in our education. Our students go beyond learning from a textbook – they learn from “hands on” experience through lectures, labs and work experience.
Industry has identified a growing need for employees who possess a wide range of competencies including critical thinking and problem solving, communication and interpersonal skills. Equipped with this blend of skills and abilities, students will be able to market themselves as well-rounded, industry-ready employees.
The B.Tech. program combines both technological and management studies so graduates are able to function in various levels – from shop floor technological situations to liaising with senior levels of management. The combination of technology and management courses, along with mandatory co-op experience, helps students learn how to make technology and management decisions in a business context.
