The next application cycle for 2014-15 is now open through the School of Graduate Studies website. This would be for a start date of September 2014. We hope to make offers to 7 MES and 3 PhD students. Only one of these offers will be for an International student. We received one International Tuition Award for 2014-15. The ITA was awarded for an incoming PhD student but can be used for an MES student if a suitable PhD student is not found.
Follow this Link for application instructions to apply. Please note for both programs, students are admitted with a named supervisor or advisor only. You must make contact with Faculty members in our department to see if they have a spot in their research program for you. Follow the Faculty tab at the to p of the page.
The March 1 deadline for applications is soon. Please ensure that all documents have been received for your application. The Graduate Committee will be meeting in early March to decide on offers which will be made mid-March. Offers can be made on complete files only.
Project available: Cross-appointed Faculty member Frank Zeman http://www.rmcc.forces.gc.ca/aca/cce-cgc/per/zeman-f-eng.php has space in his research program for a graduate student. The project would fall under the environmental chemistry banner, more specifically the remediation of alkalinity pollution from (for example) cement kiln dust. The project would seek advanced methods for dissolving cations into solution and then precipitating them elsewhere if necessary. Please contact Dr. Zeman directly if you are interested in this project.
