Department of Physics

Physics represents a cornerstone in the natural sciences and a foundation for research and development in the high-tech sector. It's an exciting and rewarding field of study that explores many of the deeper mysteries of the universe and can lead to a wide range of intriguing career and employment opportunities.

Our students benefit from small class sizes, dedicated faculty, and a very active and friendly Physics Student Society, as well as opportunities to participate in exciting research projects in experimental and theoretical physics. We provide excellent undergraduate programs to our students, including BSc Honours, Major, and Minor degrees. In addition our Co-operative Education program provides valuable work experience for students in an array of private- and public-sector settings across Canada and abroad.
