List of Canadian Universities to pursue graduate studies can be accessed below.
Newsone has obtained a list of Canadian Universities to consider if you wish to pursue graduate studies in Materials Science and/or Engineering/Metallurgical Engineering/Metallurgy.
University of Alberta
Department of Chemical & Materials Eng.
TOEFL/IELTS is non-negotiable here
University of British Columbia
They’ve got new Professors. Follow @UBCmaterials to see them.
Materials science (Ph.D.)
Université Laval, Quebec
You’ll need adequate knowledge of French for classes. A combo of English and French is required since most literature are in English
University of Manitoba
Materials science &engineering research cluster, Dept of Mechanical Engineering
Also check the mining dept.
Ecole polytechnic, Montreal polymtl.ca/futur-etudes-s…
Fluency in English or French is sufficient.
Mechanical & Materials Engineering me.queensu.ca/Research/mater…
Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Dept.
University of Toronto
Materials Science and Engineering
University of Waterloo
Mechanical & Mechatronics Engineering
University of Windsor
Mechanical, Automotive, and Materials Engineering
University of Ottawa
Dept. of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Dept of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
Université du Quèbec á Chicoutimi
University of New Brunswick
Also, check the research done at Marine Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence
University of Saskatchewan
They offer deans and graduate scholarships to go along. You have to possess excellent grades (greater than 85%), publications, and the support of a supervisor.
Materials Science & Engineering
You can follow their updates @MSE_McMaster
Things to note:
1) This list is nearly exhaustive. Feel free to suggest more programs/universities.
2) You’ll realize that some universities have a full-fledged Materials science and engineering department while others are incorporated within or created alongside a mechanical engineering dept.
3) From the first option in (2), have a look at other engineering departments
in the faculty such as mechanical engineering (some professors in the department work on materials research), Aerospace engineering (Aerospace materials), Biomedical Engineering (Biomaterials), Engineering physics, and Mining engineering (if you have previous knowledge/experience
Peep into the departments of chemistry and physics research in the areas of materials chemistry, materials physics, and functional materials.
4) Try to be flexible when searching for professors based on your research area. This implies having more than one area of research
interest as long as you can demonstrate your enthusiasm and past experience (if available). Also look to emerging areas in the field such as computational materials science (ML, AI, IoT, Industry 4.0 in materials manufacturing), additive manufacturing.
5) As a Mechanical Engineering major, you can consider these schools and research areas too. Think of ways you can ink your CAD, Numerical Modelling(FEA), and computer programming skills to what is done in the field of materials. Look beyond your major and consider related areas that are well funded. These are additional strategies to get funding in graduate school in Canada.
