Please fill out the information below to contact one of our faculty members regarding a specific research area that you are interested in.
Do not contact a faculty member until you have taken the time to understand their area of research.
If you are considering pursuing a research-based graduate degree (i.e. MASc or PhD) in the Faculty of Engineering, you will need to formally apply in order to be given an offer of admission.
There are three criteria that need to be satisfied before you can receive an offer of admission:
- You must submit an application to the graduate program in your department of interest
Note: this form is not your application. You must complete your formal application using the link above;
- You must meet the program admission requirements; and
- There must be a faculty member willing to serve as your supervisor.
With more than 300 faculty members in Waterloo Engineering, finding the faculty member who would be the best person to serve as your supervisor can be a daunting task. Our goal is to help facilitate that process.
We recommend that you review department and faculty member websites to identify those faculty members who you believe would be the best candidates to act as your supervisor and with whom you think you would like to work with. Then use the web form below to contact the faculty member(s) and provide them with the information they would find valuable for determining if you would be a good fit for their research group. This form is the most effective method of initiating this contact.
You will need to fill out this form for one faculty member at a time. If you wish to contact more than one faculty member about a research area, you will need to fill out additional forms.
A formal graduate studies application is not required to utilize this form. You may use this form to contact potential supervisors before you submit an application form or after your application is submitted.
