Bachelor of Technology Partnership: Degree Completion Program

Four years or more
College grads: Get a degree that works for you in Civil, Energy, Manufacturing or Software Engineering Technology

McMaster University Faculty of Engineering and Mohawk College School of Engineering Technology are collaborating to provide a pathway for college graduates with an advanced technology diploma. Graduates earn a Bachelor of Technology (BTech) degree from McMaster University.

Advanced engineering theory and math subjects, along with a concentration of courses in business and management, prepare students for upward career mobility or further education, including university level master's and doctoral programs in engineering or business (e.g. MEng, MBA, MASc, etc.).

All courses are offered through classes at McMaster University and are held in the evening and on Saturdays. Many students choose to study part-time while they continue to work, but full-time studies are available as well. For details visit MyBTechDegree (opens new window).

Admission Requirements

The Degree Completion Program will consider students who have completed an advanced three-year technology diploma in a related technology field with a minimum cumulative GPA of 75% (3.0 n a 4.0 scale). If you have a cumulative average of between 70 and 74.9%, please contact us to discuss the alternate pathway that may be open to you.
