Physics research

As an important aspect of scientific research at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, physics-oriented research projects are directed towards applications in modern technology and rapidly growing interdisciplinary fields, such as sustainable energy sources and environmental sciences. These projects involve various sources of funding, from government organizations to industrial companies, and benefit from both national and international collaborations.

Student involvement in all stages of research is a crucial part of many projects. It allows students to gain experience in technology-oriented projects, resulting in publications in scientific literature and participation at scientific meetings. Graduate students are always actively involved in research. However, as a new university, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology also provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to participate in research projects under faculty supervision.

The three main areas of physics research at our university are emerging energy technologies, computational physics and materials science.
