Faculties of Dentistry and Engineering

Master of Science (MSc)
Master of Applied Science/Diploma (MASc/Diploma)


The primary objective of both programs is to produce clinician-researchers who
will be prepared for an academic career in the related fields of Prosthodontics and Biomedical Engineering. As clinicians, these graduates will provide an important link between clinical treatment and basic science research. The program will be particularly attractive to students who are interested in an academic career in Prosthodontics. Students will have the opportunity to work in dedicated space in the Faculty of Dentistry clinics and dental laboratories, as well as the fully equipped biomaterials research and the new tissue engineering facilities. All students in the program will be given the opportunity to teach in the undergraduate DDS program.

Degree Options

Two graduate programs are offered in Prosthodontics. Students can opt for
either a Master of Science in Prosthodontics from the Faculty of Dentistry or a combined Diploma in Prosthodontics and Master of Applied Science in Biomedical Engineering.
