Learning beyond the classroom
Thinking of a career in science, want to broaden your knowledge, or perhaps unleash the mad scientist lurking inside you?
Undergraduate students in our programs get hands-on lab training from day one, including first year lab courses in biology, chemistry and physics. You'll be taught by researchers who bring their work into the course content, so it's always up-to-date and exciting. And you'll be part of a community; our lecture sections are small enough that you'll get to know your professors and peers.
Take part in our popular co-operative education program and you’ll graduate with relevant work experience, a great résumé, contacts in your field, some extra cash and a better chance of landing your dream job after graduation.
