IX. Graduate Programs


The Departments of Physics at the Universities of Guelph and Waterloo offer a joint program leading to MSc and PhD degrees in the following fields:

  • Astrophysics and Gravitation

  • Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics

  • Biophysics

  • Chemical Physics

  • Condensed Matter and Material Physics

  • Industrial and Applied Physics

  • Subatomic Physics

  • Quantum Computing

The Guelph-Waterloo Physics Institute consists of members from both university departments and is administered by a joint co-ordinating committee. Students interested in graduate work in physics at either university should consult the application requirements and the on-line application procedures available from the web-site http://gwp.on.ca. Students are ultimately registered at the university at which their advisor is located. A student comes under the general regulations of the university at which he or she is registered, and the degree is granted by that university.
