The Master of Applied Science in Engineering (MASc) appeals to individuals who want to expand their knowledge in specific fields, as well as develop their research and analytical abilities. MASc students will typically attend a minimum of four courses and undertake a supervised thesis lasting approximately 12 months that researches an advanced engineering topic. MEng students who have completed their MEng program requirements can apply to UWindsor's fast-track MASc program, which provides them with additional research-specific training and education. 

The Master of Applied Science degree is offered in the following areas:

Civil Engineering

Within Civil Engineering, the available fields are Structural Engineering and Water Resources Engineering. In the Structures field, research encompasses ACM, structural dynamics, fatigue damage assessment, steel, concrete technology, soil mechanics, and foundations. In the Water Resources field, research is in hydraulics, hydrology, and hydrogeology.

Environmental Engineering

In the Environmental Engineering program, research focuses on air and water quality and modeling, wastewater and industrial waste treatment, and ground water contamination.

Environmental Engineering


Electrical and Computer Engineering

Research is carried out in the broadly defined area of Signals and Systems. Within the area of Signals and Systems such research topics as digital signal processing, microsystems, communications and computers are investigated.

Electrical and Computer Engineering


Engineering Materials

Research is concentrated on the physical, mechanical, tribological, chemical and processing aspects of materials. Particular research topics include: Material Design & Development; Material Processing; Mechanical Properties of Materials; Light Metals Casting Technology and Tribology (Wear) Research.
