Science students at Mount Allison have a rare opportunity to participate in research as undergraduates, a rarity among Canadian universities:
- Approximately 40 per cent of our Science students are directly involved in research
- Nearly 50 per cent of all scientific papers produced by our professors are co-authored by an undergraduate student
You even have the opportunity for employment as a summer research assistant, working closely with faculty to solve complex problems with real-world applications.
You can also benefit from collaborations with national and international labs, including:
- National Oceanography Centre in the United Kingdom
- Mainz Microtron in Germany
- Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC)
But you don't need to travel far from home for access to state-of-the-art labs, facilities, and equipment.
You will have access to:
- Mount Allison Gemini Observatory
- High performance computing clusters
- Harold Crabtree Aqualab: Centre for Aquatic Sciences
- Digital Electron Microscope Facility
- ...just to name a few.
