Our program’s multidisciplinary approach means that, as a researcher, you’ll be regularly exposed to:

  • Experts in electrical and mechanical engineering, physics and life sciences

  • A wide range of research subjects and problems, theoretical ideas, instrumentation, equipment, approaches and methods

  • Critically important issues spanning physics, engineering and life sciences.


Each of the seven laboratories in our program are well equipped with advanced and complementary testing and experimental instrumentation. In addition, Dr. J. Stewart Aitchison’s University of Toronto laboratory includes fabrication and processing facilities.
