Step 1: Choose your research project

Students must choose one of the listed research projects and contact the supervisors associated with the project.

Step 2: Contact the supervisor and choose your department

When you have selected your research project, contact the supervisors to ensure their department is the most appropriate for your background (i.e., whether you have a BEng or BSc):

  • Physics
  • Chemistry and Biochemistry
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Chemical and Materials Engineering
  • Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • Mechanical, Industrial and Aerospace Engineering

This department will be your home department for the duration of your studies. 

If you have questions about finding a supervisor or need guidance, write to

Step 3: Prepare and assemble your documents

Ensure that your completed application includes the items on the graduate admissions requirements page. One of the requirements is a Statement of Purpose. Be sure to mention the Nanoscience program in this letter as well as the selected research project and associated supervisors.

The MSc in Nanoscience Program Committee listed below will evaluate the application and you will be notified of the decision. If the Program Committee rejects your application, you may still be considered for admission to the home department.
