About the course
The M.A.Sc. and the Ph.D. programs constitute the research stream of Graduate Studies in ECE. Many of the ground-breaking discoveries and developments that have emerged in ECE have been based in large part on research projects carried out by graduate students. Research-stream students do take courses, but they are also expected to conduct research leading to a Master?s thesis or Doctoral dissertation. Many research projects are carried out in collaboration with industry, indeed, the department counts over 75 leading companies as Corporate Partners. Many research collaborations also exist between ECE and other departments and institutes at the University of Toronto including those in the fields of computer science, physics, mathematics, materials science, mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, and biomedical engineering. Graduate student research is often published in leading journals and presented at the top conferences in the field. As described here, students in the research stream who are in good academic standing and making satisfactory progress receive a financial package for a specified duration of their studies. The financial package covers all university fees and assists with living expenses. Many students also supplement the basic financial package by working as teaching assistants. The Electronics Group is one of the largest and oldest in North America, counting Professors K.C. Smith and Adel Sedra as some of its best known alumni.
