Program Information

School:University of Windsor - Faculty of Graduate Studies
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Field of Study:Physics, General
Description:The Physics and High Technology programs offered by the Physics Department are divided into two main streams. One is Medical Physics to meet the rapidly rising needs for medical physicists to design and operate high technology medical equipment in hospitals. The second is designed to prepare students for leadership positions in both academic and industrial research, and to meet the employment needs of the Canadian high technology industry. For both streams, the combination of basic physical understanding with engineering and medical applications gives graduates the skills to keep pace with a rapidly changing technological world, and interactions of the program with industry through the co-op option keep it up to date with emerging directions in high technology. The research achievements of the physics faculty, with many awards and distinctions to their credit, make the Department one of the highest quality Physics Departments in Canada. All the faculty are active in research, with medical physics emerging as a new area of concentration. Other areas of research include: atomic and molecular physics, acoustic microscopy, relativity, and surface and thin film physics. Opportunities for undergraduate research give our students a competitive edge when they apply for co-op positions or permanent jobs when they graduate. Students must complete an accredited Master's program in Medical Physics to become fully qualified.
