The Guelph Physics Department has 15 faculty and offers strong programs in research and teaching to the Ph.D. level. The graduate and research programs are enhanced by participation in the Guelph-Waterloo Physics Institute (GWPI) and the Biophysics Interdepartmental Group (BIG). Guelph faculty members collaborate with many off-campus research institutions including the Perimeter Institute, the Canadian Light Source, and TRIUMF. Experimental and theoretical research areas include biophysics, soft and hard condensed matter, applied, gravitational, subatomic, and atomic and molecular physics, as well as physics education. We offer undergraduate degrees in physics, theoretical physics, and biological and medical physics, as well as in nanoscience and chemical physics (jointly with the Department of Chemistry).
