McMaster University - 2018 First Year Viewbook

  1. 1. McMASTER VIEWBOOK 2018 1 McMaster University sits on the traditional Territories of the Mississauga and Haudenosaunee Nations, and within the lands protected by the “Dish With One Spoon” wampum agreement (Indigenous Education Council, May 2016). President’s Message From the inception of McMaster University in 1887, our aim has been to develop and realize the potential of individuals and society at large. We believe that unleashing the creativity and curiosity of our dynamic community of students, researchers and staff to consider a wide variety of issues of fundamental importance to our local and global communities provides unlimited potential for learning and discovery. As we begin planning for this new academic year, we do so with great optimism. As an institution, and as a community of researchers, teachers and learners, we are committed to improving the health and well-being of all people, contributing to our global knowledge base and advancing the societies and the world in which we live. We believe that the full value of learning and discovery is only realized when applied to the world around us. At McMaster we work hard to challenge the constraints of inherited practices and preconceptions about the way students learn, and create more opportunities for students to connect and collaborate with the community and the world at large. This Viewbook outlines the unique and innovative program combinations that McMaster provides, and which are intended to enable our students to customize their education to align with their personal strengths and career ambitions. As our world continues to transform, we must continue to empower innovative thinkers who are eager to share their ideas in a spirit of openness, inclusiveness and collaboration. We believe that bringing together the best and brightest minds is the spark that makes a brighter world possible and we are delighted that you will soon be joining us in this endeavour. WELCOME TO A BRIGHTER WORLD. | WELCOME TO MCMASTER. Dr. Patrick Deane, President and Vice-Chancellor

  13. 13. McMASTER VIEWBOOK 2018 25 B. Tech. Management Advantage The B.Tech. program has long recognized industry demands for engineering technology professionals who understand the essentials of business and management. The program has responded to these demands by integrating technical and management courses into the B.Tech. curriculum. As a result, our students have the knowledge and skills necessary to become effective project leaders, supervisors and managers within changing professional environments. The B.Tech. program develops students and graduates with a rare combination of applied engineering and management skills. Engineering technology graduates often understand the technology but not the business side of the industry. Business School graduates often understand the business but not the technology. B.Tech. graduates understand both sides of the picture, and perhaps most importantly, how the two sides fit together. B.Tech. students and graduates are able to “think inside and outside the box”; in fact they can re-design the box and help sell it. McMASTER VIEWBOOK 201824 CIM ACCREDITATION The B.Tech. program is accredited by the Canadian Institute of Management (CIM), which recognizes B.Tech. as a leader in business and management education.

The BHSc (Honours) Program is as much about developing skills as it is about knowledge. In the information age, it's crucial to have the abilities to identify a problem, frame and refine good questions, and locate and critically evaluate the information you find. The inquiry learning model used in BHSc emphasizes skill development such as, time management, capacities for effective communication, the ability to give and receive feedback, self reflection and assessment, and group work -- all of which are valuable skills transferrable to a wide array of professional contexts, while simultaneously developing foundational knowledge in the health sciences disciplines. NICOLE JEDRZEJKO | GRADUATE | “BHSc has allowed me to study health throughout the wide spectrum of its definition, from the most microscopic level to the global scale. This broad definition makes it possible to create your own health-focused learning experience, for no two BHSc students’ stories are alike. Coming to BHSc was the best decision I could make to nurture my interest in health sciences; where we not only challenge the definition of health, but the definition of being a student in the ever-evolving world of health sciences.” |
