Faculty of Science banner

Explore everything from atoms and cells to the vast expanses of space. Through hands-on labs, projects, and co-op terms, you’ll learn to think critically, experiment confidently, and engage intelligently.

You’ll have opportunities to participate in research with professors or even launch a startup through Velocity Science. Whichever path you choose to explore, your Science degree will give you the foundation you need to succeed.

We are home to the student-run Science Society, which hosts various events throughout the year - including trivia nights and wellness Wednesdays. There are also 7 science-related clubs, which all Science students have access to.
