Graduate studies

We offer two research-centered, thesis-based graduate programs: a Master of Science (MSc) and a doctorate (PhD).


The Graduate Program Director (GPD) is Dr. Pablo Bianucci, and the Graduate Program Assistant (GPA) is Ms. Marie-Anne Cheong-Youne.

Graduate program tour: would you like to visit the Department of Physics? You can visit research labs, talk to faculty and students, and see for yourself all we do here. A few travel awards (for prospective applicants located in North America) for on-campus visits are available. If interested, please contact Dr. Bianucci

Physics research group

The Department of Physics at Concordia provides one of the most convivial environments for study and research within a traditional university campus, the Loyola campus, with an emphasis on good student-faculty interaction.

The department is positioned in the Faculty of Arts and Science. In addition to the Master of Science (MSc) in Physics, it offers a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree program.

Research activities are collaborative and organized in small groups. Students interact easily with their thesis supervisor and other faculty members and work on projects as research assistants.

Funding for  research projects are received from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and provincial agencies such as the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Nature et Technologies (FRQNT). Many of the department’s external research associations are based on relationships faculty members have developed with industry.

The theoretical and experimental research fields are supported by state-of-the-art facilities, some of them are rare in Canada or even in the world. Faculty members and research groups also use interdepartmental and interuniversity research laboratories and facilities, including

The department maintains close contacts with sister departments of other universities in Montreal and elsewhere in Canada including McGill University, the Institut national de la recherche scientifique and the Université du Québec à Montréal. International collaborative ties are established with University of Antwerp in Belgium and Arizona State University, Cornell University and Kansas State University in the United States.
