Information for Graduate Students
Our department provides opportunities for graduate study with world-leading researchers in many areas of physics. Our 16 faculty members at Guelph include many prize winning and internationally renowned scientists and educators, and provide a stimulating environment for advanced learning. Most of our faculty are very research intensive, and our research has been well funded with over $7M annually in recent years.
We have a current graduate enrollment of about 40 students, with the goal of increasing this number over the next several years. Our graduate programmes are administered through the Guelph-Waterloo Physics Institute (GWPI) and the Biophysics Interdepartmental Group (BIG), with graduate courses taught by instructors from both Guelph and Waterloo campuses. We can thus offer a large number of specialized courses in addition to the one-on-one interaction with the supervisor.
Whether you are a current Guelph student, from another Canadian University, or International student, we are actively seeking enthusiastic and well-motivated graduate students in all areas. You are strongly encouraged to contact faculty directly to inquire about specific research projects and opportunities for further study.
