Program Information

School: University of Toronto – St. George
Faculty: Applied Science and Engineering
Degree: Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study: Materials Engineering
Description: Materials engineers focus on improving what things are made of and how they are made. New materials enable better performance and sustainable technologies. You will learn from professors who create advanced materials for high-efficiency energy storage and conversion technologies, lower the cost of solar cells using silicon extracted from rice husk, and develop lightweight and high-performance materials for aerospace and automotive applications.

This is where advanced engineering and cutting-edge science meet. You’ll study how to design and manipulate the structure and properties of materials at a molecular and atomic level. With a foundation in chemistry, physics, and math, you’ll then add specialized engineering knowledge in nanotechnology, biomaterials, adaptive polymers, advanced semiconductors, photovoltaics, forensics, and many more exciting fields. Your upper years will allow you to focus on: Biomaterials, Design of Materials, Manufacturing with Materials, and Sustainable Materials Processing.
