Why I love my program

I love learning about how the world works on an extremely small scale. We can't see molecules or atoms, but we know they are there. Different types of chemistry - organic carbon based, inorganic transition metals, analytical measurements, theoretical computer models - help us to explain the results of our experiments and predict what may be possible in the future.

Why University of Waterloo?

Co-op was my first priority as I wanted paid work experience in my field. But before accepting my offer, I connected with other incoming students and found we were all passionate about science.
