Submit your paper

cover

We are delighted to announce the launch of Composites Part C: Open Access, a sister journal to Composites Part A: Applied Science and Manufacturing, Composites Part B: Engineering, and Composite Structures. The journal publishes high-quality, peer-refereed original research articles and reviews on a broad range of composite materials. All research articles are freely available via the Internet upon publication to maximize the readership. Authors are welcome to submit your work to the most relevant topical section via its dedicated editorial channel:

I. Sustainable Composites

II. Multi-functional Composites

III. Composite Structures

Submissions that fit into any of the 3 topical sections are welcome. For details of each topical section, please check Guide for Authors.

Sincerely,

Amar Mohanty, PhD

For entry in the PhD Biological Engineering program, candidates must hold a thesis-based Master’s degree in engineering.

For entry in the M.A.Sc./MEng programs, candidates must hold a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering or Science.

If your first language is not English, you will be required to submit the results of a standardized language test. Please see the chart for acceptable tests and required scores. Please refer to the School of Engineering website for department requirements.

For more information on how to apply, please contact me by e mail:

bddcjobs@uoguelph.ca with a copy to mohanty@uoguelph.ca

Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis until the positions are filled.

A preliminary selection will be made based on the interviews to qualify the prospective candidate to apply for graduate studies at the University of Guelph. Selection does not guarantee acceptance for graduate studies.

*Only short-listed candidates will be contacted.
