Program Information
Faculty: School of Graduate Studies
Degree: Doctorate
Field of Study: Materials Engineering
Description Pursuing a PhD degree, the most advanced research degree in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, can be a stepping stone to an academic career or to an industrial career which would benefit from in-depth applied research and research skills. Under the guidance of an accomplished supervisor, PhD students engage in original research that contributes to a variety of fields of study. Four years of PhD study allowing students to collaborate with local and international colleagues culminates in a written thesis which is presented orally and evaluated by experts. This is a degree program for outstanding students. Applicants may enter the PhD program via one of two routes: 1) following successful completion of an MASc degree; 2) transfer from the University of Toronto MASc program to continue work that was begun at that level.
