Additional Admission Requirements:
  • Letter(s) of Reference
  • Resume/Curriculum Vitae
  • Statement of Research Interests
The normal entry requirement for the PhD in Materials Science is a M.Sc. or M.A.Sc. in a materials science-related discipline from a recognized university with a minimum grade of B+. The M.Sc. discipline may include, but is not limited to, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, Earth Sciences/Geology and Mathematics. All applications will be evaluated by the Program’s Admissions Committee, which will determine the suitability of the prospective applicant’s academic background for entry into the Program (in light of the courses taken, research experience, etc.). Admission to the program also requires approval of the Office of Graduate Studies, as well as the assignment of a research supervisor. Alternately, particularly strong applicants registered in a pertinent M.Sc. program may be permitted to transfer into the PhD program, provided they have completed at least 9 credits of M.Sc. course work. Such transfers will normally be done after one year of being registered into the M.Sc. program, with the approval of the Program’s Admissions Committee, the Office of Graduate Studies, and the research supervisor On admission, each student will be assigned a supervisory committee composed of the student’s supervisor, plus two additional core faculty of the Program chosen by the Program Coordinator in consultation with the supervisor. The students will then meet with their supervisory committee and the Coordinator of the Program in Materials Science to discuss the proposed thesis research topic and the academic plan for the student.
