Research Opportunities Program

An experience at Canada's leading research university wouldn't be complete without some research experience. Beginning in second year, undergraduate students can work on research projects with U of T professors, for course credit.

Work while you study

The Work Study program helps almost 3,000 students a year find part-time employment at the university.

There's a Club for That

U of T assistant professor, student team up to create VR tool to teach lab techniques

When Alexander Sullivan was a kid, he was fascinated by all of the amazing things virtual reality could do at the time – from interactive gaming to using the technology to train NASA astronauts.

Now in his final year studying human biology and cellular systems biology in the Faculty of Arts & Science, Sullivan is using the next generation of equipment and software to create a VR experience of his own.

#supportthereport: A call to action

The clock is ticking on Canada’s Fundamental Science Review. But it’s not too late to act and #supportthereport. A new campaign is asking that you send a letter, tweet, or call a member of Parliament to extol the importance of Canadian fundamental research and how it can improve lives.

This fall marks the last stretch to stress to the federal government how important it is for the future of Canadian research to implement all 35 recommendations from the review, also known as the Naylor Report.

This U of T professor teaches engineering students to think like detectives

The advanced materials lab looks like something out of a CSI-like crime show, with its massive, high-power electron microscopes – but what goes on there is deeply rooted in fact, not fiction.

The Ontario Centre for the Characterisation of Advanced Materials lab, part of University of Toronto's Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, allows forensic engineers to uncover mysteries that can only be solved on a microscopic level.
