X. Collaborative Specializations

Artificial Intelligence

MSc/MASc Collaborative Specialization

Admission Requirements

Masters students in the Collaborative Specialization in Artificial Intelligence must meet the admission requirements of the participating department in which they are enrolled. The application process has two stages. First, prospective students will apply to their primary program of interest, identifying interest in the collaborative specialization as a focus. If the student is admitted to the primary program as a thesis student, the second stage is then admission to the collaborative specialization. All applications to participate in the Collaborative Specialization in Artificial Intelligence will be vetted by the specialization’s Graduate Program Coordinator.
