Interested in pursuing a Master's or PhD after graduation? Want to learn more about what graduate studies is really like? 

Attend the Faculty of Science Graduate Open House! Come chat with professors and current grad students to find out more about our programs, the benefits of furthering your studies, and unique research opportunities. 

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 — 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM EDT

This Science Café is one of the events organized by the University of Waterloo Library during Science Literacy Week. Aimed to promote public engagement with science in an informal, discussion-rich setting, this event will feature three postdocs from the Faculty of Science.

In addition to the individual’s research interest, the panel also highlights how and why a scientist’s research question is formulated. You will be able to network and gain insights into how to kickstart your next projects.

Free coffee and cookies on us!
