What’s the Difference between the Project Profile and the Research Profile?
Two profiles are offered in information technology engineering: the project profile and the research profile. The latter is focused on research and leads to the degree of Master of Applied Science (M.A.Sc.). The former will allow you to specialize in a particular area of information technology engineering and will lead to the degree of Master in Engineering (M.Eng.).
Who can enroll in a master’s in information technology engineering?
Candidates with an engineering diploma or a bachelor's degree in computer science or in applied science with a computer science component or an engineering component in a related field may apply for admission to this master's program.
Master's in information technology engineering with thesis (research profile)
The research profile is perfect for candidates who aim to continue into doctoral studies, do research and development in industry or acquire a specialization in a specific domain.
The thesis work counts for 30 credits within this 45-credit program.
Master's in information technology engineering with project (project profile)
The project profile is best for candidates who wish to update their knowledge or deepen their expertise in information technologies. The 30+ credits of courses will allow you to learn more about your field of interest, and the project will allow you to perfect your design and development skills as well as your writing skills.
The program totals 45 credits, divided either into 39 credits of courses plus 6 credits for the project, or 30 credits of course with a 15-credit project.
