The B.Tech. program is based at McMaster in the state-of-the-art Engineering Technology Building (ETB). The ETB is 125,000 square feet, Leed Gold certified facility that opened in 2009.

There are 8 teaching labs, 8 classrooms, and 4 private study rooms exclusively for B.Tech. students in the ETB.

After first year, students may travel to Mohawk’s Fennell campus for labs.

Automotive and Vehicle Engineering Technology students travel to the new McMaster Automotive Resource Centre (MARC) after first year, to utilize our state of the art laboratories and classrooms. The $26 million facility officially opened in 2013 and allows our students to participate in current research in automotive and hybrid technology.
