MSMP - M.Sc. in Materials Physics
The objective of this 17-months-long course-based program is to
provide intensive, “hands-on” graduate training in advanced experimental,
theoretical, and computational techniques of modern materials science. The
goal is to prepare highly knowledgeable and skilled graduates, who will be
well-trained as materials scientists to fill jobs in industry, government
agencies, research institutes and universities worldwide. The program is
being offered in the Department of Physics and its focus is on the
applications of condensed-matter Physics to the development and
characterization of novel materials, from semiconductors to thin films to
superconductors to liposomes.
Through the mentorship of our faculty, you will learn to work both
independently and in collaboration with others. You will learn to identify
important and critical problems and to use appropriate methods and
techniques to address them. An essential part of your training will be to
communicate your results to a scientific audience as well as to the
non-technical management staff, and to evaluate business and societal
impact of your work without prejudice. These goals will be achieved through
presentations at graduate research seminars and through the production of
detailed technical laboratory and term reports conforming to the rigorous
standards of scientific and technical publications in the fields of
Materials Science and Technology.
International students will receive a thorough training in the use of
technical English and in the style of technical and scientific interactions
in the workplace, starting with a Graduate Student Preparatory Program,
and continuing throughout the program. It is an essential element of the program that many of
the graduate classes be shared with the Canadian graduate students, to
avoid segregating international students into common-language-based groups
and to ensure that the working language remains English.
