What’s the Difference between the Project Profile and the Research Profile?
The Master's program in engineering with a concentration in telecommunications networks offers both a thesis profile and a project profile. The thesis profile is focused on research and leads to the degree of Master of Applied Sciences (M.A.Sc.). The project profile allows you to specialize in a chosen area of telecommunications and leads to the degree of Master of Engineering (M. Eng.).
Who can enrol in a master’s in telecommunications engineering?
Virtually any holder of an engineering diploma or a bachelor degree in engineering may apply for admission to the master's in engineering with a concentration in telecommunications networks.
