M.Sc. Applied - Non-Thesis Option

Non-Thesis Option (45 credits)

The M.Sc. Applied program is for individuals already employed in industry, or those seeking to improve their skills in specific areas (soil and water, structures and environment, waste management, environment protection, post-harvest technology, food process engineering, environmental engineering) to attain a higher level of engineering qualification.

Requirements

  • 45 credits.
  • Candidates must be qualified to be members of a Canadian professional engineering association such as the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec (OIQ).
  • Candidates must establish and maintain contact with their academic advisor in the Department of Bioresource Engineering before registration to clarify objectives, investigate project possibilities, and plan a program of study.

Required courses

  1. 12 credits of project courses:

    BREE 671 Project 1 6 Credits
      Offered in the:
    • Fall
    • Winter
    • Summer

    and
    BREE 672 Project 2 6 Credits
      Offered in the:
    • Fall
    • Winter
    • Summer

    (6 credits each).

  2. 31 credits in graduate courses from: the Bioresource Engineering Department or from other departments. Courses offered from other departments, must be relevant to project topics and approved by the academic advisor. For example, in the Food Process Engineering area, the candidate is expected to obtain 12 of the 31 non-project credits in the cooperating departments. Courses are offered by the Department of Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry and the Department of Chemical Engineering. The division of these 12 credits between the two departments should be decided between the candidate and the supervisors of the projects undertaken. 

    In some cases, senior undergraduate courses can be taken in the collaborating department for credit towards the M.Sc. Applied. Please consult your academic advisor.

  3. 2 credits from participation in Bioresource Engineering graduate seminar during two semesters.
